New Orleans

Pin It
As I mentioned earlier in the week, I was able to get away for two trips last month and
I had so much fun on both of them!

My husband had a work conference in New Orleans the end of March, so I tagged along to keep him company.
We stayed at the Sheraton on Canal Street. 
Beautiful view from our room.

We have been to New Orleans several times, but this trip I was on a mission to explore some new spots.
Here are a few of my faves.

Brunch at Stanley, located in the French Quarter.
Thanksgiving croissant for me and pancakes for the hubby. 
Both were delish!
The pancakes are served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

Cupcake tasting at Bittersweet on Magazine Street.
The Strawberry Shortcake cupcake was fabulous.

Meltdown Popsicle on Dumain Street in the French Quarter.

Frozen confection on a stick with flavors such as Strawberry Basil, Saffron Rosewater, Pineapple Cilantro and chocolate sea salt with pistachios to name a few.
Love this tiny little shop!

Pinkberry Fro Yo.
More frozen happiness.

Magazine Street.
This was our first time visiting Magazine Street and we loved it.
Beautiful neighborhoods, cute shops and lots of restaurants.

Sucre on Magazine Street.

I finally tasted a french macaron!
They are fabulous!

Antique shopping on Magazine.
Pyrex love.
I want some pink Pyrex SO bad, but this was way over-priced :(

Lunch at Charcoal's Gourmet Burger Bar on Magazine Street.
Shrimp burger, chips and a Diet Coke in a mason jar.
Loved this place!!

Cafe du Monde in the French Quater.
Beignet's and Diet Coke.
Need I say more :)

I hope you enjoyed my little culinary tour of New Orleans.
Time to detox!
