In Louisiana's Playground, Mardi Gras is celebrated long before Fat Tuesday arrives and the holiday spirit of revelry and indulgence is woven into every facet of the city. From lively parades and strolls to mouthwatering gumbo cook-offs, and elaborate Mardi Gras balls, the festivities are endless. No Mardi Gras event is complete without a delicious king cake, but the desserts don't stop there. The deliciously sweet flavors are incorporated into teas, coffees, snocones, beignets and more at coffee shops like The Village Coffeehouse, The Buzz Coffee and More, and PT's Snoballs, Coffee, and Ice Cream.
