Chocolate...

Hey guys,

I'm looking for a place that sells chocolates - the good kind. Expensive ones that will make your eyes pop open at the price but close once you take a bite cause they're so sinfully good. I'm talking Neuhaus, Godiva, Leonidas, Cote d'Or... or even really good local chocolates. I'm looking for truffles, or what the Belgians call pralines.

Places I've been:
Sucre- while the gelato is pretty good, and I love their macarons, the chocolates are so-so...
Lolli's Chocolates- most of their stuff is focused on molds (congratulations on your new baby, here's a chocolate balloon!), and their chocolate is just too sweet for me
Blue Frog's Chocolates- so I only tried one from here, and I'm willing to go back if people say it's amazing, but the truffle I had was definitely not amazing

When the weather gets a little cooler around here I might consider getting them shipped, but I'd rather find a local source. Any ideas?

Coffee/Cafe in the CBD open after 6pm?

Ooo, thanks everyone! I will definitely check out Cafe Envie - it looks like it's a bit of a walk, but not too far. Going through the Quarter hasn't been so bad at night - it's usually when I hit the northern part of Canal (near Rampart) that I start to wish for pepper spray.

CC's looks like a good option too - and will force me to leave by 9pm, which is probably for the better :)

Oh, great, thanks! I will definitely check that PJ's out. And Rue de la Course, if I have time to go down to magazine

Hey guys,

I'm a grad student who just moved to NOLA, and I'm looking for a coffee shop or cafe to study/work in late at night (and by late I mean 9pm). I live in the CBD (near the intersection of Canal and Rampart), and I've noticed that any coffee shop within walking distance closes around 6pm... any recommendations?
