Morning Call

Good Morning My Friends! Let me show you where I had breakfast this weekend. The place is called Morning Call. It's a coffee & beignet shop nestled in New Orleans City Park. City Park is HUGE and is home to many marvelous treasures. I plan on showcasing those treasures on the blog throughout the year. We finally had a break from the rain this weekend, so I thought I would get out and take in some fresh air. I like cozy restaurants where you can sit outside and enjoy the weather. It's relaxing and gives me a chance to clear my mind. Have you eaten beignets before? They're very light doughnuts, that are cooked to order (so they're warm when they're served). They taste great with a cup of cafe au lait or milk, and you sprinkle as much powdered sugar on them as you please. The sugar is very light and scatters everywhere. My suggestion before eating them is to wear a white top to disguise any sugar misfortunes. HaHaHa Have A Great Day!

Top: J Crew Sequin Tee (sold out)(similar) Bottom: just jeans (no pic,sorry)
This top was recently worn by my bloggy buddy Heather from Pearls & Paws Blog
Lipstick: NYC #419 English Rose (discontinued, but found on eBay)



Sweet-Bittersweet-Not Sweet
Morning Call in City Park is SWEET!

Here Are A Few Suggestions:
1. Arrive early! It fills up fast and so does the available parking space. 
 2. Bring cash! They do not accept credit or debit cards.They do however have an ATM.
 3. Bring a camera! Beautiful flowers, trees and buildings are nearby. You'll want to take pics.

  2. I would so love to come and have breakfast with you, Kim! One of my lifelong food dreams is to eat fresh beignets in New Orleans - and yours look exactly like the ones I've always dreamed of :) I'm loving the white top you wore to breakfast, too - not only is it pretty and sparkly, but it definitely would hide any sugar accidents ;)

  21. Look at this -I love the sprinkles of Sugar and your lovely self:) I haven't tasted Beignets before - but I am a fan of a good old doughnut - trick is to eat one without 'licking the sugar of you lips at all whilst eating* Ever tried - not that easy ha ha:)
    Happy Monday lovely,

    This place looks so awesome! I think breakfast joints are my favorite. Probably because I feel I go out for breakfast less often than for other meals. Love the GIFs!

  38. Yes, Kim, I had beignets before and they were amazing, melted in my mouth! My husband lived in Alabama for a couple years and he introduced me to these sweet delights! I'm sure those are a thousand times better where you live!

  46. Looks like a really sweet place :)

    On a side note: I just switched my comments to Disqus because I want there to be more of a conversation rather then just people leaving comments. Disqus seems right for that. And thoughts on the switch would be highly appreciated :)

  57. This restaurant sounds great! Not too big on restaurants that only accept cash though (this is the 21st Century lol), but if the food and service are good, I can tolerate it!

  62. Your animated gifs are ADORABLE KIM! I love the powdered sugar one mostly because I'm hungry and craving something yummy right now! What a cool restaurant - does it overlook the park a bit inside, I understand that right? I love places like that. I really want to go to NOLA one day!
