Tried mid afternoon and hardly recognized the place. But the coffee was good and maybe at a busier time the atmosphere is better. Need to try at least once then compare to other similar places.

On a humid afternoon in late June, we were caught in a downpour while exploring City Park. It was time for a snack, and we decided to spoil dinner and enjoy beignets and hot chocolate instead. We had tried visiting Cafe du Monde a couple days earlier but the line was too long and the sun was too hot. Instead,... More

Always go to Morning Call when in Metairie, LA. The cafe au lait can't be beat...not even by Cafe du Monde. The beingets were piping hot.

This is close to my parents' house. I have fond memories of coming here often as a child. Now that I have moved away, I look forward to eating beignets from Morning Call while I'm in town. I am always thrilled. The beignets are incredible. What a treat! Metairie would just not be the same without this place!

My parents and I were in town for the Sugar Bowl (go Buckeyes!) And staying in Metairie. I went here the first morning and the coffee was so good I went back every day. Beignets were very good but it was the coffee that brought me back. Thick and creamy goodness. Very reasonably priced also.

Just went in for coffee and beignets. It was 4am, they made the beignets hot and fresh. Order was quick, service was great. Definitely would go back!

We went to Morning Call for beignets and coffee for breakfast. The decor was really cool and the beignets were GREAT. We had messy fun covering them with powered sugar! I highly recommend stopping in for a tasty treat.

As good as Cafe Du Monde without the wait! If you like beignets and cafe au lait this is the place to go. It's open early and a very relaxed atmosphere. The only negative is its CASH ONLY, but an ATM is on site.

Service was wonderful and the food was great. Has been there for 100 years and the staff wear old school outfits that make you think of years ago.

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
