Having a blast in New Orleans!

Found this great cafe on Royal Street in the French Quarter, called Cafe Beignet.  Had an espresso and, for the first time, an order of beignets.  Beignets are deep-fried dough loaded with a topping of icing sugar (imagine bannock bread) - reminded me somewhat of the Chinese doughnuts I'm used to having.  They were HOT and delicious!  Very messy!  I kept apologizing to the servers but they just laughed and said that was the norm as there is just NO way to eat these things without a mess happening.  I'm talking about sugar everywhere!  lol
