Cafe Du Monde

Cafe Du Monde

800 Decatur St
New Orleans, LA
United States

Cafe Du Monde is a well-oiled machine where vats of chicory coffee are made in filters the size lampshades and beignets come out of the kitchen in a fluffy powdered sugar torrent. An army of swiftly-moving, petite, middle-aged Vietnamese ladies will ensure that your fair share of delicacies make it to your table. The ever-moving apparatus is a far cry from the coffee and donut shop opened in 1861. This is what it takes to give you and every other tourist that classic moment and taste of New Orleans. Would you prefer to wait in line for an overpriced, over precious artisan-made cupcake? Join the hoi polloi and the masses. The coffee is piping hot, the beignets pillowy... all served promptly.

Crystal is a designer who wanted to test gaming theory in the real world. So she created a Kickstarter project and raised $1,600 to build a pie cart. She baked her Granny's favorite pie recipes, and sold the slices after games of roshambo. Her next mission is to revolutionize the way women's jeans are made and sold at Qcut.
