all incredibly talented) // cafe beignet where you can enjoy delicious fried donuts

while visiting new orleans, c and i stayed in the french quarter.
our apartment was in the heart of the quarter and
within walking distance of numerous bars, coffee shops, restaurants,
we had a blast either walking or biking around the area.
while visiting, we made sure to try the beignets (powdered sugar covered, deep fried donuts), po’ boys (giant sandwiches on a baguette) and plenty of spicy gumbo!
the local cuisine is incredible!
although we stayed in the quarter for four days,
i would definitely go back.
there are so many different streets and shops to discover,
and food i still must try.

I love NOLA. I stayed there for a few days last August. The best thing I did was take a walking tour. The history is so amazing. I now take a walking tour in practically every city I go to. I just did one in Boston. So fun. It looks like you had a great time.
Thanks for sharing.
