Cafe du Monde to open in City Park next week

July 26, 2019

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A famous New Orleans coffee shop is ready to bring its beignets to its new location at an urban park.

News outlets report Cafe du Monde announced the new shop will open July 31 at the Casino Building at City Park.

The cafe had been operating a food truck in the area since January as the space was renovated. The new space is inspired by the cafe’s original French Quarter location.

Cafe du Monde won the bidding process for the space in December. It had been occupied since 2012 by rival coffee shop Morning Call — also famous for the fried dough confection covered in powdered sugar.

Losing the bid left Morning Call homeless but the owner says the shop could have a new home soon at a location nearby.
