The French Quarter in New Orleans is one of the most unique places I’ve been to in the United States. The former French colony made me feel like I was on the streets of Europe. The colorful storefronts, the bright green doors, and the architecture were so much fun to see. As someone who hunts for the most Instagram worthy places in every city, I was blown away by New Orleans French Quarter.

Cafe du Monde first went into business in 1862. Serving beignets and coffee, Cafe du Monde is open 24 hours day/7 days a week. If you’re in NOLA, you have to stop by Cafe du Monde.

Karya and I stopped by here at 8am in the morning on a Sunday. We didn’t have to wait very long and found a table right away. By 8:30 am, every table was full. I’d recommend making this one of your first stops in the French Quarter.
