Cafe du Monde beignets: See how they’re made at Riverwalk New Orleans

It's hard to find a better setting to do some shopping.

One can not go to New Orleans and not try the beignets the city is famous for. Molly McKinney received a free lesson in making beignets at the legendary Cafe Du Monde at the Riverwalk. A second location of the coffee and donut shop sits a few blocks from the original store and it’s a lot less crowded. Although she didn’t discover the secret ingredients that makes Cafe du Monde beignets so delectable, she helped produced a batch of the sugar coated confections.

New Orleans doesn’t lack for interesting shopping options, but it’s hard to find a nicer experience than the Outlet Collection at Riverwalk along the Mississippi River in the warehouse district.  Boasting fabulous river views and a wide array of incredible retail choices, these shops are at a whole different level. The modern mall sits apart from the history of nearby French Quarter yet it still attracts a number of tourist with great deals. You’ll find the mall next door to the Aquarium of the Americas at the end of Poydras Street.
