Cafe au lait, $1.82, Cafe du Mond

Cafe au lait, $1.82, Cafe du Mond

Here’s one more folder of photos from our trip to New Orleans in March done, fourteen more to go. I might just finish by New Year’s.

This was our last full day in town, we did all kinds of things that I will get to the photos for soon! really!, the first of which was a stop at Cafe du Mond. [Come to think of it, stopping at Cafe du Mond was about the last thing we did that day, too. Stick out that video, it’s funny.]

I wish we had one here, not being able to get beignets and coffee at 3 a.m. is seriously, negatively affecting my quality of life.

And the only thing you can get for $1.82 any time of day here is a taco. Which is not a bad deal, but I need more coffee than tacos.

Ugly mugs and keeping warm

It’s cold again. It wasn’t supposed to be, but we had another record-matching low [set in 1970!] last night and the sun hasn’t come out to warm it back up.

So the mug meme seems appropriate. This is the one that got away, I have never seen anything quite so ugly yet endearing.

Also sorry I didn't get this

Ole’s Waffle Shop is our favorite breakfast joint here in Alameda, they have some pretty tasty coffee for an oldschool diner and the fluffiest pancakes around.

Mama Buzz Cafe in Oakland is a great place to hang out, there’s a patio and art up in the side gallery and an ever-expanding menu.


For a little extra sugar rush, the beignets at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans.

But of course.

And, as a special bonus if you made it this far, Peet’s has a coupon up, good for 2 drinks for the price of 1 through Sunday, October 11.
