Café Du Monde

Cafe Du Monde is a traditional coffee shop.

Its menu consists of dark roasted Coffee and Chicory, Beignets, White and Chocolate Milk, and fresh-squeezed Orange Juice. The coffee is served Black or Au Lait. Au Lait means that it is mixed half and half with hot milk. Beignets are square French-style doughnuts, lavishly covered with powdered sugar. In 1988 Iced Coffee was introduced to the cafe. Soft drinks also made their debut that year.
