Cat du Monde

A visit to New Orleans wouldn't be complete without a stop for cafť au lait (coffee & chicory with boiled milk) and beignets ( fried dough with powdered sugar) at Cafť du Monde in the French Quarter. And, for many New Orleanians, a meal is not complete unless it is followed by a cup of coffee and chicory.

Chicory was added to New Orleans coffee at the time of the Civil War because of the scarcity of the coffee bean during the strife. New Orleanians became so accustomed to the unique flavor of chicory that they continue to use chicory as an additive to coffee until this day. According to the Creole tradition, the secret to a good strong cup of coffee is preparing it in a traditional French slow drip pot.
