After having my Delicious tasting beniet we had to use the facilities which are throught the kitchen to get there. Don't look up at the light fixture or you will see a stream of bugs coming out of the light and across the ceiling. I live in Florida and am accustomed to the occational bug but that was stomach turning.... More

So everyone I spoke to and knowing that I'm die hard dessert fanatic said "you must go to Café Du Monde" when you go to NOLA. So I went and I totally expected to be blown away by the dessert gods! The beignets are simply fried dough (napkin soaked the grease) with tons of powdered sugar and the coffee was... More

This place is always busy, busy, busy. I didn't get a table but there were quite a few open on a wednesday afternoon. It is crowded and there are servers weaving in and out of people while holding trays of coffee & beighnets so try to pay attention where you're going lol. I got an iced coffee (it's 90° &... More

Came here with my husband and mother-in-law for our first time and wow, I could have eaten at least 3 beignets with my coffee by myself. Also at 2am on the day we were leaving NOLA, I sent my husband here to get 2 orders of beignets so we could eat them on the plane and at home, they don't... More

Just an FYI - if you don't want to order to go, walk inside the cafe and simply find an empty table. Several folks were getting confused when they saw the long line outside the cafe (to go ordering is around the back). Loved the beignets! They have a great cafe au lait as well. Cash only, so don't forget... More

I found myself here on work a month or so ago and watned to try all the little spots that everyone always talks about. This is the one that stands out the most. I will be telling everyone to indulgence at least once! Beignets are the best in the city, and trust me I had a few...Watching them make them... More

Best Beignets in the world. Never miss having them when we are in New Orleans. They are good no matter what time of the day or night you go there!! Sometimes the wait can be long but they are worth it !!

My brother and I enjoyed the cafe au lait at both locations. It is worth the wait. The beignets are hot, sweet and tasty. Although you can take them home and reheat in microwave they are best served and eaten hot.

It is a 24 hour spot, with the best coffee and beignets in New Orleans. I know people love donuts, but I am not really a fan. Beignets are in a class of their own, and I can't get enough of them. Best chicory coffee, chickory coffee au lait. Great ice coffees too!
