America's Best Coffee Bars
An essential French Quarter stop, Café Du Monde has been serving chicory-spiced coffee, black or au lait, for over 150 years. Chicory, first introduced to stretch coffee supplies during the Civil War era, is still used for its flavor, which enhances the rich chocolate undertones of dark-roasted coffee. Tourists and locals line up at all hours for the specialty coffee, paired with the café’s justly famous beignets. cafedumonde.com
