As a kid born at the same time as Disney World and growing up in a rapidly developing Orlando, thanks to the creation of the theme park, there was never a shortage of weekend and late night fun to be had. If you wanted ice cream or even fried chicken late at night, you could find it. A Sunday drive could turn into lunch at Epcot, snorkeling in a crystal clear aqua blue spring, or a picnic on the beach.

When my husband and I raised our boys in a completely different way, in a tiny Appalachian mountain town, the one thing I missed for myself and for my children was the possibility of anything happening at any time. To make up for it, too many times I dragged them into the car for drives through Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a healthy alternative, or weekends in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN for a taste of “tourist town” excitement. I also made sure that on visits home I kept them busy from early morning to late at night, which wasn’t hard to do in theme park and resort areas.

When we visited New Orleans for the first time, the fact that you could be out on the streets in The French Quarter until late at night and still find something fun to do (or eat) reminded me of home. Stumbling upon Sucre’ our first night there, after a fabulous creole dinner and a lengthy stroll, was literally the icing on on the cake of our first day in The French Quarter.

Open until 10 p.m. on weeknights and 11 on weekends, late night treats, when heavy Southern fare has you weighed down, are a definite possibility.

And it’s convenient location on Conti Street means no late night back-street hike into areas you’d rather not venture into as a tourist.

The overwhelming abundance of French macarons available at Sucre’ is what first caught my eye.

But I was further impressed by the number of French pastry creations and a large number of gelato flavors available, as well as Sucre’s full service espresso bar.

I wanted a macaron, but couldn’t decide on a flavor (or flavors), so I chose a beautiful chocolate genoise creation with a pretty little gold embellished macaron garnish so that I could have my gateau and eat it too!
