Great place to stop for a break if you are transiting though New Orleans (and Kenner) on Interstate 10. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the beignets were cooked fresh while we waited. Delish!

The prices are too high, the lines are too long and I still enjoy the heck out of these beignets. How can you beat a powdered sugar heart attack warm bite? I am not a coffee person so I only come for the main item. In the summer I eat them by themselves but in the winter the hot chocolate... More

Ok, so you can't be in Louisiana and not have Beignets. We read up all about this cafe and stumbled across this one in the Esplanade Mall and it was evident just by the looks of the place that they take pride in their product. So we had the Beignets, Frozen Coffee Drinks and Hot Chocolate and they were all... More

First off, we only had beignets and hot chocolate at this place, so I am not sure about the lunch. The atmosphere is quite busy, but the service was quick. It's a neat place to try if you like funnel cakes with a ton of sugar. Be aware that you will walk away covered in powdered sugar, but the taste... More

The place is swarming with tourists. Organization is not the best at this cafe, so good luck. For the outdoor dining, its first come first served, so just fight for a table and wait.

The beignets and coffee is essentially the same as the more famous location in the French Quarter. The atmosphere obviously isn't but definitely a worthwhile stop.

A must on every trip to New Orleans. Wash down with Cafe au Lait and you'll be in seventh heaven. Service may leave a little to be desired, but remember why you went there in the first place!

Not at all like the French Quarter spot. Cafe Noir and Cafe au lait were really bad from the drive thru.

Imagine our surprise to find a Cafe Du Monde close to the airport! We were beyond thrilled. The staff was so courteous and made our daughter feel so special for her first visit. The beignets were perfect--just like in the French Quarter. Definitely a must see/stop before leaving for the airport!!
