Get them to go! Better than New Orleans!!

The beignets are AMAZING!!!! Don't let the looks of the building discourage you-Because the beignets are really good!! The customer service isn't the best but you will not go wrong ordering them "to go"!! My whole family really looks forward to arriving in Gulf Shores to order our beignets!!

Beignets were wonderful. Coffee was great. Only 'bad' thing - you have to order the beignets in sets of three. Make sure you try the filled ones - in fact, try three of each and couple them up.

The beignets were OK, but the people who run the place, especially the woman, are rude. Why would you even think about spending your hard earned money in an establishment that treats it's customers so poorly? My husband and I when there several weeks ago. Arriving around 11:20am, placed our order, got the beignets within 10 mins. We proceeded to... More

Having had Cafe du Monde beignets in New Olreans, it's hard to give this place an excellent rating. These beignets were doughy and a bit hard, but tasty. But fried dough and powdered sugar it's hard to go wrong, unless they are over done.

My mom took my 2 kids and I out for breakfast. Although she us on a limited budget, she insisted on Grandma paying. The food was okay. We were surprised when ordering drinks that we all were given tiny Styrofoam cups. After she paid, she just threw her change in the tip charge without paying attention to how much it... More

Ok, you gotta get your mind right before going in. The place is not nice and pretty. It actually looks kind of old. The staff isn't all that friendly. They don't take credit or debit cards. They close at noon-ISH. That could mean 11:30 or even 12:30, who knows. Also, you gotta know how to order beignets. They aren't friendly... More

Fun to reminisce about cafe du monde while here but just not the same quality. Ditto on the unfriendly service. Probably would not eat here again

I walked in and there were 2 tabkes of customers eating. I wasn't greeted by the woman working. She didn't even make eye contact. The floor was nasty, black in the high traffic areas but supposed to be tan! The whole restaurant seemed very dirty and not in a hole in the wall dive bare kind of way! I ordered... More

Staff was friendly. 12 beignets in 3 min. Was only one in shop. Took them to go with coffee. The beignets were average but def not Cafe DeMonde (in NOLA).
