We continued walking, and stopped at Cafe Du Monde (which had a line literally wrapping around the block) so instead of waiting like the rest of the plebes, we opted to just sit in the cafe for a few moments and take in the scenery. I’m not a big believer in somewhere having the ‘best beignet’ - I mean, it’s literally fried dough covered in powdered sugar. That, to me, is not worth wasting an hour in line for. We continued down the road and ended up at Jackson Square. We were surprised (and glad) to see the statue of Andrew Jackson still in tact. We walked around the square, read the signage with the history of the square, and continued on to the cathedral opposite.
