The City Park location, is the best

Whnever I have visitors in from out of town, they have beignets in mind. Rather than the Cafe du Monde in the French Quarter I always take them here first. Here the beignets come naked, there's a sugar duster on your table to add as much powdery white stuff as you like. The strong coffee with... read more

Love to go there when visiting Metairie for cafe' au lait and beignets. I like the fact that a powdered sugar container is on each table and that the server can also bring a glass of water, if desired. The coffee is cheaper than the Cafe Du Monde. The atmosphere at the Metairie location adds to a pleasant experience.

Morning Call is a true New Orleans tradition that has relocated to a Metairie strip mall but still kept some of its timeless charm by maintaining the original interiors. Piping hot beignets and cafe at lait. Service needs some improvement: bored teenagers on summer vacation do not good waiters make. But this is a New Orleans classic that is definitely... More

I go to Morning Call in City Park often. It's a wonderful location and a huge improvement over the vendors that used to occupy the space. The beignets are okay but nothing to write home about. Café du Monde has a crispier product with more substance and less 'fluff'. The au lait is always good, BUT here's where it breaks... More

Promised the kids donuts for breakfast,but you don't come to NOLA without experiencing beignets, Popped into Morning Call to grab an order, and was pleasantly surprised at the old school look and feel of this spot as well as the low cost of the beignets. Needless to say the pastry was a delicious hit!

If you like beignets and hot coffee..Try this place it is worth the parking spot hunt. They are total old fashion and CASH ONLY! They have an ATM inside location. From Café Ole to Hot Chocolate...you will love the Beignets. It is right next door to the Post Office and then shop till you drop at the local shops in... More

To have rich, flavorful coffee with chicory and beingets that are crunchy on the outside and melt in your mouth interiors, go to the morning call in Metarie. The crawfish pie is a different but tasty take on the original, and big enough for two. Unscrew the powdered sugar canisters for the best effect. Enjoy the original furniture from the... More

This is a must try place. The whole experience is great, but don't show up at 8 or 9 am and just expect to sit anywhere you like, especially on a weekend, holiday or event day. You'll grow old waiting. It's coffee and beignets...........breakfast......get it early or prepare to wait!

Our family stayed in NO for several days before a cruise leaving out of Port of NO and we had always heard about the great beignets in NO. We set out to try different locations for various restaurants offering beignets and Morning Call wins hands down! Morning Call was the first we had tried because it was near the location... More
