No lines, fast service. Beignets and café au lait are amazing. Went there twice. Had a seat outside by jackson square with no waiting at all. Cash only business, only told us after we ate. It should say on the door or something... Always a live band or music playing. Great place to go people watching.

Not for those on a diet, this place has been super popular for decades. Great beignets and strong coffee. Packed with people and lined with street entertainers. It's another must stop day or night, although I find the night crowd more entertaining. Tasty!

What can I say it isn't a visit to the French Quarter unless you stop here and get your Coffee & Beignet fix! Oh yes Coffee with Chicory and sugar Beignets!

I can't say enough about this place, love love love their beignets! Cash only so keep that in mind. I did notice one morning some tables had chairs on them, the people who took the chairs down and seated themselves didn't seem to get waited on. We think those tables were closed, and not in anyones section.

Cafe du Monde has been around for a long time and many people say it isn't worth it; however, I disagree with them! I recommend going either mid-morning (after the breakfast rush but before lunch) or in the afternoon. It is outdoor seating and you are eating powdery, messy beignets but that's the experience! We enjoyed listening to some local... More

The Beneigh's are not "just donuts" they are mouthwateringly amazing, a must have while in Nola! I first noticed all of the powdered all over the floor in the restaurant, and quickly seen why, it's piled on these warm donut, funnel cake like pastries. I'd never had one before and they are very yummy! Each time I've passed by the... More

No visit to New Orleans would be complete with out a visit. Fantastic for people watching and fried dough with powdered sugar. Makes for a perfect breakfast when paired with orange juice!
