The Café of the World

Todays post is about a very interesting café in Louisiana, USA instead of a vacations spot or city. Café du Monde is a reputable open-air coffee shop on Decanter Street. This café is French hence the name café du Monde which means café of the world. It is world famous for its café au lait that contains chicory, something that’s usually not found in coffee and the infamous beignets. The chicory adds this chocolaty flavor to the coffee. It came about first when the French couldn’t afford pure coffee so they diluted it with chicory. As for the beignets this is what makes the café as enchanting as it seems. These are square shaped doughnuts that don’t have a hole in the center. Beignets are served with powdered sugar, jam, marmalade or maple syrup. At this café beignets are served with a generous amount of powdered sugar; generous enough for people to blow it into other peoples faces. If you ever go to this place the first thing you will notice is peoples faces being covered with sugar even elderly ones! Added to all of this is the whimsical architecture. There’s just something about French architecture stripped-down to its bare minimal; the striped walls, the shades of green and the lights that almost make it look like a carousal ride about to spin in all its wonder! All of this makes the café what it is today and what it will continue to be forever……..at least till I go there ;PUntitled.pngUntitled.pngUntitled.pngééé
