We drove 20 miles to specifically go to this place, got there 30 mins before they were suppose to close at noon, and the doors were locked with a woman standing at the counter who would not look up. There were two other groups of ppl trying to get in, and we all just stood outside wondering why she wouldn't... More

Every year our family makes the journey to Gulf Shores and we stay in a rental house in Ft Morgan. We always spend at least one morning stealing away to this little gem. If you're looking for franchise atmosphere and cookie-cutter menus, this is not your place. If you are seeking to experience local foods this is a good start.... More

Little hole in the wall with so-so food at prices that don't match. Staff was not friendly. Only went to this place based on trip advisor reviews as we have had luck with local place that way before but I must say this one is way off the mark.

Cafe Beignets has been around for years. They are a traditional sweet indulgence at the beach. I stick with the plain beignets, but filled options are available. Service was quick and efficient.

We tried this place after passing it several times. The menu was very limited and the service wasn't very friendly.

Cafe Beignets is definitely worth a stop for breakfast if they're in the area. Not as good as the beignets in New Orleans, but still really good. We got plain beignets, but I'd like to try the filled ones next time. The staff was very friendly.

Apparently they close early, at around 12, so get there early! They also close if they sell out. The plain beignets were OK, just fried puffs with tons of sugar on top. It was nice that when we brought a diabetic they refrained from putting sugar on top. However, the filled ones were amazing!! They had vanilla pudding in them... More

We stopped in mid-morning since we heard it was worth visiting. Located in a little strip mall, Cafe Beignet doesn't disappoint. All the pastries are made to order and all by hand. They do one thing and do it well. If you go, be aware that they're much more filling than they look. Be sure to try the lemon filled.... More
