When I was walking back to my hotel, I passed "Cafe Beignet," and decided to get my coffee fix.
This small shop is sweet looking, and even had live music while I was there!
Café Beignet is a cup full of New Orleans’ best European traditions. For two hundred years, New Orleanians have savored every sip of their rich coffee accompanied by delicate, crisp beignets (ben-yays).
These golden squares, usually dusted with powdered confectioner's sugar, can best be described as a cross between a French pastry and an American doughnut. In New Orleans, beignets are enjoyed at a breakfast, for dessert, or any time for a special treat.
New Orleans’ Café Beignet provides a grand cafe setting outside and in, and the best coffee and beignets anywhere. Breakfast Served All Day. New Orleans Cajun Specialties and Fried Seafood Also Available.So, I ended up actually getting a hot chocolate. But it was fabulous!
