Long Description:
Cafe Du Monde is a traditional coffee shop. Its menu consists of dark roasted Coffee and Chicory, Beignets, White and Chocolate Milk, and fresh squeezed Orange Juice. The coffee is served Black or Au Lait. Au Lait means that it is mixed half coffee and half hot milk.

Beignets were brought to Louisiana by the Acadians. These were fried fritters, sometimes filled with fruit. Today, the beignet is a square piece of dough, fried, and covered with powdered sugar. They are served in orders of three.

The first Café du Monde opened in the New Orleans French Market in 1862.

Starting in the late 1980s, Café Du Monde opened additional locations in shopping malls. There are a total of eight Café du Monde coffee stand locations in the New Orleans metropolitan area: the original located in the French Market at 800 Decatur Street, Riverwalk Marketplace, Esplanade Mall, Lakeside Mall, Oakwood Mall, Veterans Boulevard, Mandeville, Covington and City Park.

The "City Park's Casino building", despite the name, for most its history has housed restaurants, cafes, and park offices.
