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.

Sounds like a great way to start a Sunday - and then walk it all off in the park ;-) Have a lovely week xo

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 ;)

I'd love to have a cup of coffee there at the moment :)

Beignets are a favourite of mine but not easy to find in the UK. Not much chance of sitting outside here today....it's snowing! Have a good week.

The Dainty Dolls House said...

Hiya doll..this place sounds wonderful!! Lovely food :) I like places that have a great place to sit and relax as you eat. I would get food all over me, haha!! You look gorgeous, love the top and the lipstick pops so nicely. Makes me think of tulips in the spring...can you tell I am over winter!?! Haha. I have Spring Fever badly, haha!! I hope you have a marvellous week girl!! And I hope your box comes super soon, haha. I'm excited!!! <3

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,

Sara said...

Oh I love your top! You look so pretty!

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!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

Love me some beignets but I haven't had one in years. Cute sequin top--and you look so great in pink lipstick.

Juneli said...

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!

My sister-in-law's parents live in New Orleans now, and always talk about the food there, lol. This looks like such a great place to visit. You look so cute and love that top!

Nope, I've not eaten beignets before but whatever you just described, sure makes me very hungry! =D

Vanessa, Take only Memories said...

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 :)

Unknown said...

Really nice place Kim, and your breakfast looks yummy, you could not be sitting outside overhere right now, it's pretty cold, windy and rainy, disgusting I wish I could sit outside there and have those delicious beignets, I haven't heard about them before.
Have an amazing week.

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!

S said...

sounds yummy, we have a terrible lack of 24hours joints here, and i really like your gifs!

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!

<3 katherine

Unknown said...

Kim! Your lipstick is so sunny and bright I love it, pairs really well with your sequined top!
