A famous New Orleans coffee shop is ready to bring its beignets to its new location at City Park.

Cafe du Monde owners say their new shop will open and begin operating on July 31 at the Casino Building.

The cafe had been operating a food truck in the area since January as the space was being renovated. The new space will be inspired by the cafe's original location in the French Quarter.

Cafe du Monde won the bidding process for the space in December. It had been occupied since 2012 by Morning Call, also well known for its version of the fried dough confection covered with powdered sugar.

Losing the bid left Morning Call homeless but the owner says there could be a new home opening soon at a nearby location.
