Two weeks ago I joined Steve for the weekend in New Orleans. Each time I visit I enjoy the city more. The hotel Steve always stays at is the Best Western on Rampart Street.
I love walking and as Steve left to do company visits, I walked to have my café au lait and beignets.
Café Du Monte has been in business since 1862 and is open 24 hours a day. The menu is simple, beignets, café au lait and orange juice. Often one has to wait for a table and chair to sit and consume these goodies plus cash, no plastic is taken at this business.
Once I completed my morning treat I walked to the Mississippi River and took a peek. NOLA is also called the Crescent City because the river makes a bend at the bottom of the French Quarter. On a previous visit we did the river boat tour. Steve takes a ferry for work sometimes to cross the Mississippi to do his job.
