Wonderful Cafe au Lait

Our hosts took us to the City Park location. I cannot tolerate gluten, so was unable to share the beignets. My companions loved them. I enjoyed the cafe au lait and an order of red beans and rice.

When we stay in the Metairie are visiting N.O. we always have to get to Morning Call for the Coffee and Beignets. This place is old and awesome. They make it like it was done 50 years ago. great service and the place where the locals go!

We love to stop in for cafe au lait and some beignets while in the Metairie area. Great location and aways very good. we really like the powdered sugar on the hot beignets. Give it a try.

Morning Call our Cafe du Monde. It's hard to know which is better. Morning Call beignets have a deliciously crisp outside around a tasty, airy center. It's wonderful. I guess I will have to continue comparing the two. Oh well.

Better then that famous place in the French Quarter. It's where the locals go. Not far off the express way either. Great coffee too, and I hate coffee.

I have frequented Morning Call since 1961 when I was a freshman in college. The ambience of a Nawlins coffee draws you, aside from the deli table beignets for your sugar fix all of which epitomizes the wonde ful culture and heritage of South Louisiana.

Anyone who has grown up in New Orleans has been going to cafe du monde since childhood. Dance recitals, classroom graduations. But we still come here as adults. We bring our kids. We bring our out-of-town friends. Great coffee. Great Beignets. After all of these years, still very affordable. My only suggestion is to upgrade to bottled water.

Visited while at city park. The food was generally good for snack food and we did think the beignets better here than cafe du monde. However our waitress took forever! For a few hotdogs, a couple of mufalettas etc we waited over 45 minutes and she brought everything out separately. She kept coming back, forgetting our order. I would do... More
