You can't go wrong with fried dough! We went to the take out window on the side of the building and ate our beignets at the top of the river overlook. Nice.

My first stop after putting my bags in my hotel room. The Café au Lait is thick and rich. Sooooo delicious. The beignets are to die for and inexpensive. WOW!

I mean... I don't know what the big deal is? The beignets tastes like fluffy funnel cake. What am I missing here? Don't get me wrong, the beignets were good but nothing to rave about, wait in line for a hour for AND deal with our waiter's crappy attitude. As for me, I won't die if I never have it... More

This place is one of those stops everyone should make in N.O. Even if you are on a diet. Just have a beignet (ben yay) or 10, and a cup of coffee (sans sugar) at Cafe Du Monde. I bought the grounds and brought them back to California, gave a few cans away as gifts. (Great idea for a souvenir... More

Of course the reason for going is the wonderful beignets. And they were delicious. Went on Sunday morning about 9 and had to wait in line for about 20 minutes but it went fast.

Yes the place can be crowded wait a little long and service questionable but you still must go. The coffee is very good and atmosphere is brilliant. Beignets are good. Not much on the menu though.

you don't visit New Orleans with have a beignet and lots of powder sugar. The puffy donuts are delicious if you don't mind getting a little messy while eating these delectable treats. The coffee is strong and the ice coffee is good.
