"C'mon take me to the Mardi Gras
Where the people sing and play
Where the dancing is elite
And there's music in the street
Both night and day"
The list of must-go and wanna-go food and drink places almost endless in New Orleans. Muffulettas at Central Grocery or Cochon Butcher, crawfish etouffee at Bon Ton Cafe, the turtle soup at Commander's Palace, the charbroiled oysters at Drago's, the oysters Rockefeller at Galatorie's, the shrimp remoulade and Pimm's cup at Napolen House....All of these and many many more.
But the first thing you gotta do when you get off the plane, park the car, escape the tour group...whatever your mode of travel-is head to Cafe DuMonde for cafe au lait and some BEIGNETS! Some once said "Cafe au lait makes it possible to get out of bed, beignets make it worthwhile!" And this is indeed the truth. Pillowy, soft yet crunchy with dusting of fine powdered sugar...When the angels in heaven order donuts the beignet is what they get.
So here comes Eddie Papa's American Hangout in Pleasanton, CA with its Louisianan pedigree and its California brashness. With our cocky swagger, and we're gonna put out Golden State spin on the beignets with a hot cup of Big House Roasters coffee. See you if you won't be dreaming about them! All the time.
