And I'm not even a big doughnut fan. But the cafe au lait and beignets at Cafe Du Monde on a lazy afternoon in NOLA hit the spot. The beignets were so good I had to come back the next day for seconds and try them with an iced cafe au lait, which was delicious. Definitely stop by this place if you're ever in the city. The French Market is right next door, along with some often photographed scenery and landmarks that you'll probably recognize. Oh, and I fell in love with the old green chairs scattered around tables for customers. They probably wouldn't have missed one if I had absconded with it. But I have manners.
