The coffee was ok - had chickory in it. This made for an interesting flavor. The lines were long and restaurant was busy since it was Christmas. It was in a great location in the French Quarter near Jackson Square. Worth trying once.

Very basic all round, tables and chairs are simple. Icing prefer everywhere but part of the experience. Takeaway is available and it is... More

stopped off here on this famous spot for beignets and coffee. Suggest sharing the beignets as it is nothing but fried dough with powdered sugar. A must nonetheless.

One cannot visit New Orleans without having Coffee au Lait and Beignets. The Beignets are beyond description and so yummy. It is a real treat and you really get the flavor of New Orleans.

A few girls and I were in NOLA for a bachelorette weekend, and of course had Cafe Du Monde on our itinerary of things we had to do. We waited for about 15 minutes to get seated, and another 10 minutes for a server to come take our order. They were very busy (tons of seating though under a huge... More

Okay, let's just say when we first had beignets we said they are just overrated french donuts! Then why did we come back 3 more times, and had more! And we are still thinking of going back there one more time before we go home! With that said, yes it's a good place to stop by and have coffee (cafe... More

One of the rare food experiences that lived up to the hype from tons of friends who have gone before me....save your appetite and eat up! No need to wait to be seated. Grab the first table you see...

Visited NOLA week of 12/16 and stopped to have beignets and coffee while doing a walk about. The service was horrible and we were not the only people who left after seeing how customers were being treated. The wait staff refused to even look you in the eye while passing by the tables. Dirty tables were everywhere and the people... More

Beignets are just average, but café au lait is delish, and the ambience is ever the reason to drop in.
