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

This is there only location, now. Still great coffee and good beignets. Depending on when you are there, service can be off, but worth the wait. These beignets are not as thick, heavy, and more traditional, and you have to self-service you powder sugar, but great tables by the park.

We tried beignets at four different place while in NOLA and Morning Call was the best! They were lighter and more tender than Cafe Dumond. The cafe au lait was made the way it should be-equal parts coffee and milk made to order, not premixed in a vat. Must try these beignets!

Prefer their coffee to other more touristy spots. Beignets are not as greasy and are bigger and cheaper.

I like the beauty of the setting in City Park. I also love the cafe au latte. The beignets are good but not as good at Cafe Du Monde. I wash they would sugar them in the kitchen, but buy them anyway, they go great with the coffee! You may need to ask for service. It depends on where you... More

My husband and I stopped in quickly for some coffee and beinets on our way to my last day of conference classes, and we were very happy. The beignets were made fresh upon order and the coffee was the best we had all week! great little find.
