Muriel's used to be haunted by the ghosts of several slaves. However, many years ago the owners decided to block off an area of the restaurant which can be seen from the street and dedicate it to the slaves. They place fresh bread in the room each day, and ever since they started the tradition the ghosts of the slaves haven't been seen. Although she never actually lived there, in theory Muriel is the woman who would own Muriel's Jackson Square.
It was a a grand New Orleans home in the mids. Egyptian mummy cases mingle with tasseled lamps and a Ouija board in the upstairs Seance Lounge; velvet curtains are suspended alongside trees in the iron-furnished Courtyard Bar; the Virgin Mary hangs just outside a restroom ornamented with African tribal paraphernalia.
Muriel is an eccentric ghost they say. She likes chairs to slide over slippery wooden floors, and she plays spooky Gregorian chants in stairways illuminated by gaslights. One recent report is that she can be seen sometimes as a reflection in the windows looking out towards Jackson square,. The best known is Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, who built this structure as a home in He committed suicide upstairs in , and his ghost can be seen wandering through the building.
The lounge on the second floor is haunted by Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan. Jourdan built his house the building the restaurant currently resides in in The house was his dream home, and he loved it dearly. However, one night in Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan bet his house in a poker game. Unfortunately, he lost the game and had to give up his home. But before he gave it up, he committed suicide on the second floor.

The Original Cafe Du Monde is a traditional coffee shop. The coffee is served Black or Au Lait. Au Lait means that it is mixed half and half with hot milk. Beignets are square French -style doughnuts, lavishly covered with powdered sugar.
In Iced Coffee was introduced to the cafe. Soft drinks also made their debut that year. The taste for coffee and chicory was developed by the French during their civil war.
Coffee was scarce during those times, and they found that chicory added body and flavor to the brew. The Acadians from Nova Scotia brought this taste and many other french customs heritage to Louisiana.
Chicory is the root of the endive plant. Endive is a type of lettuce. The root of the plant is roasted and ground. It is added to the coffee to soften the bitter edge of the dark roasted coffee. However, people have a personal preference on how they like their coffee. People like their coffee strong and black, or with sugar; maybe with a little more milk, or maybe a little weaker brew. I suggest that the Coffee and Chicory be demonstrated using vacuum bottles to keep the coffee hot, and to give the customer the opportunity to experiment finding their personal preference.
