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!!

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

My husband and I visited this place, the coffee was great and the Beignets were amazing. We ended up leaving with a dozen beignets.

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).

We had breakfast here when we were in Gulf Shores in November. The beignets were delicious and the staff was friendly. We look forward to eating here again when we return in August!

Get there early and get a big box to-go. The beignets are yummy and most accommodations are a short drive away.

Just had to give this place a try. I found it just right. I rarely eat beignets so finding a good spot to get them is important. This location opens early but closes at noon. I hit it right at 8:00 am on a Friday and only one other customer there, but more came in after me. Everyone was served... More

Husband and I are from the Mississippi gulf coast and both enjoy beignets very much, who doesn't? The beignets here were delish, the employees weren't as friendly as we are used to and the atmosphere wasn't our thing... we ended up eating them in our black car that has black interior, we are risk takers. ;)
