World Food: Café du Monde, New Orleans.


I can’t find a definitive answer as to whether or not Café du Monde beignets are vegan, but I suspect they’re not. Beignets are square, airy donuts served hot and pampered with a generous heap of powdered sugar. It puffs from the doughnuts in plumes as you bite into the crispy fried batter, traditionally washed down with a Café du Monde café au lait. Located on 800 Decatur Street, it’s open 24 hours a day for coffee, beignets and spying on the characters crawling around the vibrant French quarter after dark.
