    Nice tourist review of the Big Easy. Having lived there in the past it is a fun area however crime can be a problem.
    You should go visit The Quarter during the gay pride parade or on Fat Tuesday if you want to experience N.O. at it’s peak.

    Cafe du Monde has never us let down. Their beignets are far superior to Beignet Cafe. We went to the Beignet Cafe location on Royal St. At that time, it was convenient for us. Our friends insisted to try it, I should have put up a bigger fight. The beignets were awful. Not hot, very greasy. Never again! Cafe du Monde only serves beignets nothing else. Cafe Beignet serves a whole menu. Cafe Beignet, never again.

    +1 for cafe du monde.
    And they’re not supposed to be round or light or fluffy.

    I was fortunate enough to get an invite to a couple of houses in the quarter a bit further down Bourbon Street. While the drunks stagger outside fighting the roaches ERRR palmetto bugs for sidewalk supremacy, behind those rickety doors and iron gates you’ll find some of the most palatial interiors this side of the Atlantic. Some of those places are used to entertain high rollers that come to town during Mardi Gras, and many have been in the same family for generations.
