I had wanted to try the Morning Call in Metairie but we never got there. So I was excited to see it in City Park. We sat at an outside table covered in powdered sugar, which was to be expected with the beignets. I was sure our server or someone would clean it. No. Our server came, took our order,... More

I've been to this place before but have never got coffee. I wish I could get coffee like this everyday! Some people may think $4 may be too much for coffee but I would be there everyday if I could! You've got to try it!

This is where we always stop on our way out of the city. The décor is the same as the one in the French Quarter and always takes me back to my childhood. There is nothing like fresh, hot beignets dusted with powdered sugar. Be sure not to laugh when you take a bite because sugar with go everywhere! Light,... More

It's definitely New Orleans where friends gather over coffee and beignets. Add your own powdered sugar and dive in. Can be a little noisy, but a great experience any time of the day or night.

I was a little iffy about trying out a new beignet place but I was staying in Metairie and this place had great reviews. So went and loved it! Such a cute and charming beignet shop with great food and amazing service! We have found a new favorite!

I had not eaten real Beignets since I when to high school in New Orleans area. It was just like stepping back 40 years nothing changed, the flavor of the freshly made donut was just as remembered. The coffee was as I had never left, with the strong unforgettable aroma. We had flew in to meet with my brother living... More

My wife loves this place. She got started with coffee from this place 30 years ago. It seems that not much has changed during those 30 years. The place still looks similar, with old furnitures and cash registers still around. There are some new food items though. Not only does it sell coffee and beignets, but it also sells some... More
