Laissez les bon temps rouler!! It’s Mardis Gras again [so soon!] and I have too little time to write… so I’ll simply refer to last year’s entry:
Yes, there’s more to New Orleans than Mardi Gras, and more to New Orleans coffee than Cafe du Monde. Sadly, the venerable Kaldi’s Coffeehouse and Museum is no more… its museum aspect was no affectation — it’d just been in business that long, and it’s worn wood-plank floors and battle-scarred counters told a story, as did its selection of just-roasted, brewed coffees. I never had chicory-laced coffee at Kaldi’s. You know what? I never missed it.
Get an update on New Orleans’ current coffee scene, and a simple how-to for making your very own cafe au lait… just follow the time machine.
