Just like making a donut or coffee run, this run will earn major points! I bet you could even call in your order. My family and I went upon a rec from a friend. We got there and its location is much left to be desired. It is within a strip mall and not a lot was done to differentiate... read more

The beignets are very good. They also offer beignets with a couple different toppings offered. The also serve coffee, cappuccino and a few other drinks. The menu is very limited. They do have a special, and it is cheaper to order a large order of beignets than to have every person order a separate order. The restaurant is in a... More

These delicious, hollow squares of dough covered in powdered sugar are a favorite for my whole family! The small shop has a comfortable atmosphere. It can get a little pricy, but our family couldn't go on spring break without stopping here at least twice! Most servers are ok, and the food comes very quickly. Their chocolate milk is also delicious!

Cafe Beignet in Gulf Shores brings the taste of New Orleans to a fine little cafe. They only serve beignets (regular and stuffed) along with some danish and muffins and coffee, etc. A popular place they close, as they say, "noonish." But their product is as good as any you will find anywhere! Don't miss it.

This cafe was bustling with business at the time of our visit. As I made my way to the front of the line, I was examining the menu, still not really knowing what my choices might be. The waitress told me what I wanted so I trusted her advice. The biggest surprise was the different fillings they had for the... More

These beignets rival New Orleans Cafe Du Monde. Light and airy and covered in powdered sugar. A real delight

The food was barely acceptable but the most distressing aspect proved to be the surly service. Not only were we disappointed but other customers commented on the way out about the service.

We are from Louisiana so we are very picky about our beignets! I would have swore we were in Louisiana and not Alabama. They were fresh from the grease and drenched in powdered sugar just the way we like them. The cappuccino was amazing too!
