Cafe du Monde in New Orleans

Story

Coffee first came to North America through New Orleans, beginning in the middle of the 18th century. French colonists brought coffee with them when they settled along the Mississippi. Later, with the beginning of the Civil War, the shortage of coffee began - they began to replace it with chicory.

It was the 19th century. Port of New Orleans - the largest center of the coffee industry. Bitter brew has become extremely popular. Tents spread throughout the city, especially near the embankment, which is now spread out french market.

In 1862, businessman Fred Keniger opened a new coffee shop in the meat market building so that visitors could drink coffee and treat themselves to fried donuts before shopping. So was born Cafe du Monde.

In May 1942 the cafe was bought by the Fernandez family - it still owns the establishment. The secret of the prosperity of the cafe is a good location in the French market, which has long been the main center of trade.

The first Cafe du Monde outside New Orleans appeared... in Japan. Representatives of the Duskin corporation persuaded the owners of 6 years before opening an institution in Japan in the early 1990s. Most citizens still do not know about this fact.

The cafe was unplanned closed on August 27, 2005 - at this moment hurricane Katrina raged. Despite minor damage, the restaurant did not open for another two months. Solemn reopened it only in October.

The opening was predictably accompanied by a long line of people at the entrance.

The restaurant is so popular that by 2015 became the most popular place in Louisiana by the number of photos on Instagram.

Features

The menu in this cult eatery has not changed much since the days of the Civil War: coffee, beignets, hot chocolate, milk and freshly squeezed orange juice. Since the end of the 80s, carbonated drinks and cold coffee have appeared.

The specialty cafés au lait in the establishment is mixed with chicory and warm milk. Chicory gives coffee a strong but bitter taste. Many people offer to combine coffee with beige.

Bénier (Beignets) is the main attraction of the cafe. These are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and powdered square sugar donuts. The sweetness of icing sugar cakes helps balance the bitterness of coffee. Sometimes they are served with fruit, jam or maple syrup. Easy to eat three of these alone, and, frankly, why not?

In 2007 the city rabbi made his mission to certify Cafe du Monde as a kosher establishment. Own bender and coffee blend appeared as early as next year to Hanukkah.

The quality of coffee and coffee remains stable since the time of its foundation, and the view of Jackson Square from the tables is legendary. This does not mean that the cafe is not without flaws. There are a lot of people here, especially during breakfast, and powdered sugar leaves a sticky sheen on everything - on the floor, chairs, tables. However, none of these things are critical.

Keep Cafe du Monde in your list of required visits, especially if you first visited New Orleans. In the rapidly developing modern world, where we are constantly forced to make decisions, an old-fashioned coffee house makes life easier. Come here and immerse yourself in the relaxed atmosphere of New Orleans.
