Breakfast

Originally established in 1862, Café Du Monde is the place to go for a quintessential pick-me-up in the form of a now world-famous beignet and a cafe au lait. The patio lined with a striped green and white awning is the perfect place for people-watching in the French Quarter. It can get busy during peak lunch and dinner hours, but because it is open 24 hours, you have plenty of opportunities to hit up this New Orleans landmark. There is also a quick-service window for take-out orders, but make sure to take some napkins because powdered sugar from the beignets can get everywhere.
