If you are in fairly good shape it is not too far to walk..however, as Venice and T C posted, there is a shuttle, or street car that runs right by the riverwalk, will take you within a block of Cafe du Monde...just tell the driver where u want to go and he will direct you. It is only like $1.25 for a round trip..at least that is what it was last July. DH and I are thinking maybe doing the Cafe du Monde AFTER we get of our Triumph cruise next month. mmm..I need some of that cafe au lait!!!
