After your snack you can wander around the side and watch how the beignets are made, and where the waiters line up to pick them up.
It's cash only at the Cafe Du Monde.
I'm glad I made the visit, especially since we got there early and missed the wait in line. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed my sugary treat and strong coffee as much after standing in a long line.
The gift shop is across the street where you can get the chicory coffee, beignet mix, t-shirts and a lot more. The prices are very reasonable; you can get a t-shirt for ten bucks. We picked up one, a couple of cans of coffee, and some drink mixes.
Cafe Du Monde has been featured on many travel shows, including Man Vs. Food and Food Paradise. The food show where I saw it was The Originals with Emeril Lagasse on the Cooking Channel.
