Wonderful Beignets

Attended the Mardi Gras parade on Fat Tuesday in Gulf Shores with friends. After the parade on a cold day we went into Cafe Beignets for coffee and beignets. It was crowded but service was very good and fast. The beignets were excellent. A great experience.

I have been going to this beignet shop for years. The menu is limited to beignets, but what wonderful beignets they are! And the price is very affordable. You can have a breakfast of three piping, hot beignets and coffee for about $5.00. Service is usually 'very good unless they are really busy. (There is usually only one server, but... More

We were so excited to try this place as we loved the beignets in New Orleans. The first thing that hit us when we walked in was the "old oil" smell. Awful! The second was the unwelcoming attitude of the guy who was working there. He was rude and short with us. When he tossed the basket of beignets on... More

We stopped after church for coffee and beignets. The chicory coffee was excellent and a nice change from regular coffee. Beignets are fresh and very good.

No matter how hard I try while in Gulf Shores or Fort Morgan I find my self getting up early. It all because of this restaurant. I just wake up thinking about those hot Beignets and boom I am out of bed headed there. They are located in the same small shopping center where the Rouses Grocery Story is. Man... More

Server was very sweet and smiled. She liked to tease. Beignets were tasty and coffee was hot and fresh. We ordered plain, lemon and vanilla beignets. They were all delicious! We will be back.

They are only open in the morning, and they only serve beignets and coffee. And it's a no-frills cafe, but they are delicious. Great for a quick stop on your way out for the day.
