First time ever visiting New Orleans and was advised to go here by locals. What a pleasant surprise. Though I don't have other samples of beignets to compare these to, they were very light and crunchy! The cafe' au lait was so good I had three cups. The atmosphere is a little "tired" or run down but appears to be... More

Open 24 hours so if you have a late night beignet craving and you don't want to drive to the Quarter, check out Morning Call. Same food and atmosphere in a smaller location. I prefer their coffee.

The beignets here are the only true, authentic New Orleans style beignets in the area. The location at City Park is wonderful, too. Seat yourself and order your café au lait (also made the right way, with hot milk poured from a kettle into the coffee) and an order of three beignets, crispy outside and soft and delightfully chewy inside....

Great local place with a superb breakfast. Great service, with a fine atmosphere. Strong coffee so if you like your coffee black like I do, drink it like a fine scotch, sip and enjoy. If you are like my wife, there is not enough cream to lighten it.

Next time you are in New Orleans and are thinking you must go to Cafe Du Monde, remember Morning Call is where the locals go. Once you have experienced it you will know why. Very accessible, no huge long wait, very pleasant staff and great beignet's. Give it a try.

Every once in a while, we get the yen for beignets and good coffee. Food is great and can't beat the atmosphere.

Our late visit to Morning Call (my first) was delightful. Despite the hour, many were there enjoying their beignets & coffee. Very clean, service is quick, friendly and effective. The offerings are limited, beignets -hot beverages-a few other breakfast sides and gumbo. My hot chocolate was rich, scalding and the beignets delicious! For a good price, you get three hot... More

We enjoyed our early morning stop at Morning Call - delicious beignets, strong coffee, very friendly server. But using the ladies' room turned the experience around. It had obviously not been attended to in a long while. Sorry, this could have been a five star review :(

I have gone to Morning Call many times through the years and it was always a good experience. It is an iconic New Orleans type experience. Beignets are hot and crunchy, coffee is steaming hot, service is good. It is always a treat.

Excellent place to stop in for afternoon coffee. The flavor was great and the beignets were excellent. Good service and attentive staff as well. This place does not take credit cards, and has an ATM handy. Well worth the stop in.
