And among other things, unlike Cafe du Monde, Morning Call is stunning inside. That big mirror? Love!


Fabulous reportage shots of this famous coffee shop!


Love beignets and the coffee with chicory.Try the CDM brand. You can buy it anywhere around New Orleans including Walmart. It is the same as Cafe Du Monde (CDM), without the expensive price.Just wish I lived closer. We have family on the Northshore, but I don't get there often enough to keep a supply. My first visit to your blog, but not my last.

Maryn, it truly is! Every time I've been in Cafe du Monde, they've had the ugly tent up around the outside area.

Thank you, Tedesco57 - glad to see you over here from Flickr!

Patricia, thanks for the recommendation! We can get the Cafe du Monde brand around here, but we don't often. And Logan's folks have lived in Mandeville for almost 4 years now, so we've spent a good bit of time there. Thanks for the compliments!


"Open 24-hrs," too! Amazing.

Yup - now there's an idea for that 2 AM doughnut craving...



Dang, how the world goes along . . . I can remember my father taking me to the Morning Call when it was still located in town, back in the late '60s.


And do I see Sr. Mary Elizabeth sitting in the back corner there, in her coif and wimple? You just never see a Sister in a wimple any more. Not that I blame them; coifs were hella awkward to wear when doing all the things you have to do during the day.

Marchbanks, how cool! I wonder how similar the place looks. And you do, indeed, see a nun in full wimple.

Hey I've just come across this entry. You can always find Cafe Du Monde in tin cans (the exact same cans sold in New Orleans) at My Thanh Supermarket in Chinatown (it should be Viettown, by the way, as most of the shops there are run by Vietnamese). Go through the double doors, turn right, walk 5 yards and look to your left :-)
