HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!!!
Yours Truly CCG, Sis, and Niecy took a trip home to NEW ORLEANS for the Christmas Holiday!!!
Left ATLANTA on Friday, December 22, and due to the potential threat of a Winter Precipitation Mix coming to The ATL; we returned the following Friday, December 29.
Friday morning, we were up early and ready to roll out. However; before leaving our beloved CRESCENT CITY we decided to make a stop.
MORNING CALL COFFEE STAND
NEW ORLEANS CITY PARK
56 DREYFOUS DRIVE
NEW ORLEANS, LA 70119
OPEN 24 HOURS
CASH ONLY!!! CASH ONLY!!! CASH ONLY!!!
MORNING CALL COFFEE STAND is well known as the Most Famous COFFEE-DRINKING PLACE In NEW ORLEANS, and has been serving CAFE' Au LAIT and BEIGNETS to generations of locals and visitors for over 140 years.
Founded in 1870 by JOSEPH JURISICH and operated by succeeding generations this venerable establishment is best described as “one of the world’s great coffee houses” and recognized nationwide in numerous publications and periodicals.
MORNING CALL offers a unique and traditional experience. The rich chicory coffee is brewed using the time tested French Drip Brewing Method which allows the coffee to build intensity and body. Whole milk is heated to a near boil then mixed with the coffee to form the quintessential Cafe' Au Lait.
The beignets, also referred to as French Market Donuts are hand rolled and cut before being plunged into hot oil. The result is a light, delicate treat that is liberally dusted with powdered sugar and is well-known as an irresistible New Orleans creation.
MORNING CALL serves their beignets in orders of three, sans sugar (photo below). However; there IS a jar of powdered sugar at each table for you to achieve your own personally desired level of powdery-sugary deliciousness (photo above).
CCG had one order at the table, and; decided to have an additional bag of three to take along for the ride.
GOOD FOOD, GOOD LOCATION, GOOD CONVERSATION, GOOD SERVICE, GOOD TIMES!!!
