Birthday Beignets

bakeries/cafes/dessert places - breakfast

Everyone should eat beignets on their birthday! Last year, for my 34th, I celebrated at Cafe du Monde….

…since I’m in New Orleans again, we continued the tradition…

…except this location is in a mall. How perfect for a Jersey Girl like myself!

Although the original French Market cafe is a must-experience for any tourist, I greatly appreciated the warmth/calmness of the food court…

…the river view…

…and being able to watch the beignets being born!

Afterwards, we wiped ourselves off and boarded a trolley. It’s cold today so this was a perfect morning activity!

    So funny to stumble onto this post today~ that mall and riverwalk you snapped pics of I used to walk through every 4-5 days for 9 months when I worked for Carnival Cruise Lines! It brought back a smile and some found memories for me, and I adore beignets~ just scrumptious! If you get a chance when you are there, Stanley’s breakfast place in Jackson Square is phenomenal…corn encrusted oysters over poached eggs…I’d walk BLOCKS just to get there for an off-board treat!
