|Musical Legends Park on Bourbon Street|
The live jazz is cool. But what makes the Musical Legends Park even cooler is the fact that it also houses Cafe Beignet.
Cafe Beignet actually has two different locations in the French Quarter; the other one is an indoor cafe on Royal Street. R. and I visited the location at Musical Legends Park to enjoy some Sunday morning jazz along with our breakfast.

The line to order was quite a bit longer than I had expected as there was only one cashier on this busy day. Although Cafe Beignet serves more than beignets, I felt obligated to try their beignets anyway, since it seems that would be their signature item. We sat at one of the covered tables outside and took in the atmosphere.
The fresh beignets were satisfying. Not quite Cafe du Monde good, in my opinion (I found the ones at Cafe Beignet to be denser), but I think it is highly a matter of personal preference as you'll find many who like Cafe Beignet better. I do think Cafe du Monde's cafe au lait wins, however. On the other hand, for a relaxing atmosphere and jazz entertainment, it is hard to beat Cafe Beignet.
