No trip to New Orleans is complete without a trip (or two, or six...) to Cafe du Monde for beignets and coffee with chickory. I can take or leave the chickory in my coffee, but the beignets are not to be missed.
Since we had ample opportunity to observe the operations at Cafe du Monde, we can tell you that they are in dire need of a workflow analysis. We'd be happy to do the job; they can pay us in beignets! :)
