Snackshot Of The Day: Beignets

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of beignets. These puff pastries are loaded with powdered sugar. You'll find the best ones at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. The cafe is open 24 hours a day, so instead of waiting on the line that goes down the block during the day, do as the locals do: go out for a few drinks (or a lot) and pick up some beignets on your way home at 3:00 a.m. They'll taste better that way anyway.
