Authentic Beignets

The real deal with a nice twist as vanilla or fruit filling. Open early AM to Noon. Real chicory coffee

I felt like I was in New Orleans! Fresh, hot, delicious beignets! You can get them plain or cream filled. I prefer plain. They also have chicory coffee. Clean inside. Friendly and attentive staff.

Who doesn't love beignets? They are like a little bit of Heaven. Obviously, the best are at Cafe Du Monde in Jackson Square, New Orleans. But I'll tell you what...the ones at Cafe Beignet are a close second. I could eat a tub of them. But then I'd be a tub. Oh well...it's worth it. A great way to start... More

Little place at the end of the same strip as Rouse's Grocery Store. Popped in this morning for breakfast at 8:55 am and there were only 2 tables occupied. Our standard order is one plain (3 in an order) and one vanilla filled. In less than 10 minutes, we got our coffee and piping hot beignets. They do not skimp... More

We we're welcomed by friendly staff upon arrival. Cafe was neat & clean. Beignets were to die for! I will return everyday on my next trip!

This is the kind of place that could highly benefit from a remodel. The trouble is, the beignets are so good that people will keep coming back despite the aging decor. Order the beignets to go.

The beignets are very good. They also offer beignets with a couple different toppings offered. The also serve coffee, cappuccino and a few other drinks. The menu is very limited. They do have a special, and it is cheaper to order a large order of beignets than to have every person order a separate order. The restaurant is in a... More

These delicious, hollow squares of dough covered in powdered sugar are a favorite for my whole family! The small shop has a comfortable atmosphere. It can get a little pricy, but our family couldn't go on spring break without stopping here at least twice! Most servers are ok, and the food comes very quickly. Their chocolate milk is also delicious!

Cafe Beignet in Gulf Shores brings the taste of New Orleans to a fine little cafe. They only serve beignets (regular and stuffed) along with some danish and muffins and coffee, etc. A popular place they close, as they say, "noonish." But their product is as good as any you will find anywhere! Don't miss it.
