Ordering up a plate of beignets is a must when in New Orleans. The deep-fried doughnut-like deliciousness rolled in powdered sugar is one of the city's most famous food staples, loved by locals and visitors alike. 

A precursor to today's doughnuts, beignets are made from square-cut pieces of yeast dough formed without the dougnut hole and fried. First introduced to the city by French-Creole colonists in the 18th century, they are perfection when served hot and accompanied by cafe au lait or chocolate milk. Enjoying a plate of them is right up there with listening to live New Orleans jazz. If you're lucky, you'll get both at one sitting. 


Visit Cafe Beignet in New Orleans Musical Legends Park, a tribute to local legends of the jazz world. Imagine enjoying those beignets under the watchful eyes of statues dedicated to greats like Fats Domino, Irma Lee, and Louis Prima. They're positioned around the park under strings of festive lights. 

Lick the powdered sugar from your fingers and plant a dot of it on your child's nose while listening to the live music of Steamboat Willie. Yes, beignets and jazz can be a fun and slightly mischievous combination.
