Good Ol’ N’awlins Cookin’ and Drinkin’

After reading my first two blogs, I’m sure you are now super excited and currently making plans for a trip to New Orleans! However, with all of the sightseeing and exploring that you do in NOLA, you will be working up a big appetite. So, why not check out some of these very well known places to eat and drink.


I honestly don’t think you could go wrong eating anywhere when it comes to New Orleans. All of the food is extremely delicious. During my trip, I went to multiple places and ate a lot of great food.

Here are some of the places I went to:

Out of all of these, my favorite by far was the famous, Café Du Monde. This is probably because I have a big sweet tooth and strong love for coffee. Regardless, this place has the tastiest beignets. The line is always long at all hours of the day. However, I recommend finding a spot in line because the wait is well worth it.


As you probably already know, New Orleans is known for not only the great food, music, and festivities but also their bars. While in the city, I went to a few bars and saw some great live music. Listed below are places that I recommend checking out while on your trip.

Fun fact: You can stop to get a drink and take it on the go while you tour the city. 

If you plan to incorporate any of my suggested New Orleans activities within your trip itinerary, you’ll be able to conveniently make a stop to a couple of these suggested bars. For example, if you take a ghost tour with French Quarter Phantoms, you will begin your journey at the Voodoo Lounge. Similarly, if you catch a show at Preservation Hall, you can treat yourself to some delicious hurricanes from Pat O’Briens located just next door.

These are all just a few recommendations of places to go when adventuring the Big Easy.

I told you my ultimate favorite place and thing to eat in New Orleans, now it’s your turn. I can’t wait to hear your favorites!
