Good to see the Café du Monde is still going strong. I lived in the French Quarter, and worked the 7pm to 3am shift in that café during the summer of 1972. Got drunk on my 21st birthday with the guys and gals I worked with there. Great times!

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, amazingly, it is quite full everyday, particularly on the week ends.  Not that the food is excellent, but it is nice to sit around 7:00 am in the morning, and observe the city waking up slowly.

The menu only had 3 things on it when I was there: coffee, beignets, and chocolate milk!

Is Cafe du Monde owned by Chinese?  Not that I have anything against them, but I was surprised to see so many Chinese/Asian waiter/waitresses.

Afraid I don't know, but found this on Wikipedia:

Cheers
