Neela: I spent a week in New Orleans once. I became addicted to beignets.
Yvonne: Cafe du Monde is my favorite place.
Cafe du Monde is a tradition in New Orleans, and regarded as the best place for cafe au lait and beignets, square fried doughnuts heaped with powdered sugar, which are served 24 hours a day. Located along the Mississippi River in the French Quarter, it survived 2005's Hurricane Katrina and reopened for business within a short period of time.
