Morning Call is all about the Beignet and Cafe au Lait experience. They use a different dough recipe from well known rival Cafe du Monde. In my opinion, the Morning Call beignets are superior to the ones at Cafe du Monde. I also like the option of being able to sprinkle the amount of powered sugar that I prefer on... More

I have been eating beignets here since I was a kid. When returning to Nawlins, I like to make a visit. The beignets are not what I remember. Small and crispy but an ok taste. Coffee was good. Staff was fine.

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 chickory is the perfect... 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
