I have had beignets in New Orleans. These were really good also. Our family was staying out of town on vacation. My husband drove into town two mornings to purchase beignets because once was not enough. They only make 3 dozen at a time. Be prepared to wait a bit. The gentleman in front of him... read more

The place was small with 10-12 tables. It was quiet, would've been nicer if music was playing. The place is dated, but I wouldn't let that stop me from going. The beignets are pretty good. I can't recall what the New Orleans beignets were like, but I think the atmosphere there was part of the experience. I'm not disappointed by... More

They have some great food and it is worth the price. Sometimes you and too treat yourself and I did. The service was quick and the food was hot. It is nice and comfortable

For starters, let me say that this cafe does have delicious beignets. If that was the only criteria, they'd get a pass. However, the staff is a bit off, and a feeling of griminess pervades the place. The carpet could use a thorough cleaning, as good the single bathroom (accessible only through the storage room in back). I'm also suspicious... More

3 of us went in for a donut run for about 30 people. The woman at the counter was aweful. We messed up our order and had to restart so the lady told us we messed her up and she "deserved a tip" for having to ring it up again. I was fed up so left my friends to get... More

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.
