We always make sure to eat at Cafe Pontalba in the French quarter (such good crawfish!!) and stop by Cafe du Monde for beignets and coffee! 


We also love visiting Oak Alley although it’s a little drive from NOLA, it’s beautiful and the mojitos are 👍🏼

Cafe Du Monde for beignets is a must! I would avoid Restaurant August. Way over priced and hyped.

chasesgirl :  I want to forewarn you that this weekend is Southern Decadence Fest, so be prepared to see male genitals while in the French Quarter! Lol I’m not even joking. It’s a huge Gay Pride fest, and people get very rowdy. It’s so much fun though! I think you chose a great weekend to come, even though it will be extra crowded.  Honestly,  getting a room might be difficult this weekend with the festival.  I’m curious see if you’re able to. If Hansen’s is still open, go there for a snoball! Also, a swamp tour would be a lot of fun. Lil Dizzys is a great soul food place on Treme, and I also really like Parkway for poboys.


Let us know how your trip goes!

So since the fest is this weekend, I think y’all will have a great time walking around the quarter. If that isn’t your thing, try the zoo and/or aquarium.  Like another Bee mentioned, Oak Alley is beautiful.
