Coffee With Chicory

New Orleans 2015-01-18 2

Hi y'all from Nawlins, Louisiana. I actually have work to do the next couple of days but Mrs. C and I walked and walked yesterday afternoon. I took somewhere between a lot and way too many pictures. Overwhelming, fabulous dinner at Galatoire's last night. Quick post, to bed, and up to work today.

This is the renowned (to the tourists, anyway) Cafe du Monde, where they serve beignets, puffy fried pastries coated in powdered sugar, with coffee flavored with chicory. It's a great local tradition, although I'll take my Italian roast, please.

Much more to come.

Love that first photo, Bob. I too don't care for coffee with chicory but the place looks as if it's jumping.

I really like the focal point you have used in the first image.

Very nice!

New Orleans is such a great city to photograph at anytime.

Coffee WITH chicory ? I remember when we lived in the middle of Africa, It was a choice coffee OR chicory when coffee wasn't available :)

Not a coffee drinker, but the pastries sound wonderful!

I love that top photo- the coffee shop has such an "only in America" feel to it!
