Trois Beignet – S’il Vous Plait

New Orleans is well known for it’s fantastic food. Traditional dishes such as jambalya, red beans and rice, muffalettas, and gumbo are something that I look forward to every time I’m in NO for work and I promise that in upcoming blogs I’ll get to some of my favorite spots for those – However, this blog is an “Ode to the Beignet” Delicious fried, sweet, hot, and crispy these little doughy bites are a favorite treat of mine when I visit the Crescent City.
Most people head to Cafe Du Monde for their version of the beignet and cafe au lait – but I find the cafe a bit too touristy (although still good) and prefer the Cafe Beignet not too far from there where you wait while they fry up your beignets fresh and deliver them to you hot and greasy in a bag filled with powdered sugar. They come in an order of three and the last time I was there I promised myself that I was going to be good and only eat one….  (Yeah right!)Oh well, it was a good thought.

Locations: There are two Cafe Beignets in New Orleans
311 Bourbon Street and 334-B Royal Street
Menu: Breakfast Served-All-Day as well as traditional cajun and fried fish
My Faves: The hot, crispy, fresh, powdered sugar coated beignets

Welcome fellow Road Warriors! Like many of you, I travel for work -- A lot! But believe it or not, I actually pretty much love it. I've become a bona fide business travel tourist by finding quick things to do when I find myself with the bits of free time that we business travelers sometimes get (i.e. after meetings and before dinner.) especially if I'm in a great city like Chicago, NY or San Francisco. Because we never have much time, this blog is all about quick, easy, inexpensive/free things to do in some of the cities I travel to along with recommendations for restaurants that are great for meals with colleagues, but also perfectly comfortable for solo dining. So maybe next time you find that you have a few minutes to yourself on a business trip, before you just automatically head for your hotel room, barricade yourself in with your computer and cell phone and order room service, you'll be inspired to become a business travel tourist and start loving your business travel too. Feel free to comment on any of my posts and let me and other readers know if you have tips, or recommendations. Happy Travels!
