vanmour reviewed Cafe Du Monde
I was in New Orleans for a week and decided to visit Cafe du Monde. It was 2pm and not super crowded. I ordered a black coffee and beignets. The coffee was mediocre at best. It was typical weak, undistinguished American coffee. Indifferent would be kind. On the other hand, though nothing came up to a a proper cup of coffee, there were better cups of American coffee. Ruby Slipper had an OK cup. I did think that Rouses Market had excellent beans--French roast breakfast mix. The coffee made from these beans has been terrific. Beignets drowned in powdered sugar were fine though a bit greasy. It is a typical New Orleans experience and was fun though the coffee indifferent.
