Cafe du Monde

I got up at 6:00 am to start my day with a beignet and cafe au laitCafe du Monde has been a part of New Orleans’ French Market for more than 100 years.  With more outdoor seating than indoor, it is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week closing only for Christmas Day and when an occassional hurricane passes too close to the city.

      • By the way, I have tons of relatives in the area, a niece going to UNO, a sister in Chalmette, and a brother, sister, and nephew over in Slidell (north shore). I went to Mardi Gras ever year from 1974 to 1993.

    • Wow! So then you totally know what I mean when I say “sauna” about the weather! I’ll bet it’s much nicer during Mardi Gras.

      • Not necessarily. I’ve been in 100°F Mardi Gras with 100% humidity, and I’ve been in 32°F Mardi Gras where the humidity in the air froze.

        The unpredictable weather is just one of many reason why I don’t really like the Gulf Coast. Hurricanes, tornados, and flash floods are some of the others.

      • Well, if it’s stable, beautiful weather you want, you now live in about the best place I can think of for that! Ha!

I love hearing from you!
