Dear Donut People (and you know who you are): After you’ve done Café du Monde, you need to see Henry the Donut Whisperer for the $20 dozen: around $6 for 12 of the Platonic ideal donuts, the rest for the cab from the Quarter and back. It’s less than what you’d pay for a ride to the Maple Leaf, and equally worth it. Have the cab wait, hope the line is short, stick to the drops and classic glazed. Fun fact: Dwight Henry starred in the film Beasts of the Southern Wild.
