I always make it a point to stop by when we are in Gulf Shores which is usually a several times a year to pick up several orders of their beignets and take back to our condo. Always fresh and hot and the staff has always been friendly to us.

We had not had a beignet in years, wanted to share the delight with our teens. This little gem is in a strip shopping center, nothing fancy. They keep it simple here, 3 to an order and cooked while you wait - so worth the short wait! Try them plain with lots of powdered sugar or if you have a... More

We vacationed in Gulf Shores recently and happened up on this cafe on our way to Fort Morgan. It has been years since I had a beignet and wanted to share it with my daughter. Their air conditioning had gone out so they were miserably hot but that did not influence their hospitality one bit. Everyone was so friendly and... More

We ordered two dozen to take back to our house for breakfast one morning and they were awesome. Not sure what's wrong with people and their negative reviews about the staff. The beignets are made to order. They come out hot and are as good as anything in New Orleans. They serve one thing here; beignets. They only take cash.... More

Nothing but good coffee, soft drinks, juice and perfect beignets. This sweet little surprise was tucked in a shopping center a mile or so from our condo. It's unassuming and easy to miss but worth the trouble to find it. Seems to be popular with locals. If you love fresh, hot, beignets and a good latte, this place if for... More

I was disappointed that this place is cash only. We had to pay $3 to take out money from the ATM in the shop. The beignets were nothing fancy. Plain dough with powdered sugar is not exactly worth getting up early for. The lady that waited on us had no personality whatsoever. We won't be going back.

Stopped by here on our way out of town around 10:00 on a Saturday morning. The place was crowded and seemed to be mainly locals who all knew each other. To me that is always a good sign when you are in a touristy area. The beignets are made when ordered and were delivered to us hot and fresh. We... More

A woman, who I can only assume is one of the owners, was incredibly snarky to me last June when we stopped in for a special breakfast on the last day of our beach vacation ... but the friends I came with this year still really wanted to take their Mother as a late Mothers' Day treat. What a mistake!... More

My family and I visited on a visit to Fort Morgan. The place is very basic. They provide excellent service, a good value and the beignets are good. If you have been spoiled with NOLA... they are not exactly the same but they do a respectable attempt. They are authentic in they are powdery messy and fresh. If you can't... More
