I know, everyone goes to Cafe Du Monde. The problem is they all seem to go at the same time. We were lucky enough to get a quick seat, but when we left 40 minutes later, there must have been 200 people in line for a table. The beignets were OK, but nothing I would wait in line for 2... read more

One of those thing I guess you have to do while your in New Orleans. Nothing spectacular the beignets were great just probably not worth the wait.

The line was not bad at all and the beignets were delicious!! We went on a Sunday night so that may be why the line was so short. I do wish they would take cards at the carry out window...

Cafe Du Monde is mandatory when you visit New Orleans. I had it as my birthday breakfast and couldn't have been happier. That coffee is like a punch in face, which was exactly what I needed.

The best beignets and coffee hands down. Nothing better then sitting outside at 2am and enjoying beignets and coffee with chickory.

There really is no other beignet comparable to the original. I know I've gained ten pounds from all the dough and powdered sugar, but it was worth it.

Mmmm! Worth the wait? Yes they are. The takeout line moves fast. or go before 9 if you want to sit at a table. Service Isn't always with a smile but these people work non stop. Bring cash just because it's easier.

liked the beignets...did not like the lines. everyone said it is like that all the time, so I guess they have a great product. But, wish they would do something to help that line move faster.

I ate here every day I was in New Orleans. I had heard about it and was anxious to try it and it didn't disappoint. All they sell are beignets and drinks. They come in 3's (3 for $1.82) so I had three and a cafe au latte every morning. So delicious and oh how I miss them. Service was... More
