I had beignets brought back to me at the hotel. I ate two of the three right away. Very good. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of trying to save one for later. That evening it became a tough, chewy lump.

I love everything - the beignets above all, the coffee, the orange juice and the simplicity. I love it!

The beignets are fabulous. We've tried others; these are by far the best. The coffee is some of the best, if not the best we've ever had. Cafe du Monde is a must stop. Don't let the long lines stop you, it's well worth the wait. A Great experience.

i am so happy to have visited cafe du monde, the beignets and hot chocolate really hit the spot, its cash only and just about as tasty as a pastry can get!

We walked to get our first taste of these french made pastry, without a lie, worth the walk there to have them made fresh/hot out of the fryer....try them you'll love them!

These beignets are as good as many other places in New Orleans. However, this is a NOLA staple so you really have to go here for the experience. The coffee on the other hand is some of the best I have had in the U.S. The lines are insanely long so be prepared for that. My husband and I got... More

We had our first beignets here and they were definitely the best! (compared to other restaurants) We had iced coffee when we were here because it was so hot, but wish we could have tried the hot coffee. Service was a little slow, but it's probably because they are busy all the time. In 6 days we stopped here 3... More

The Biegnet's we got were greasy and tasted like an old stale fried donuts. Sorry but we were not impressed. The draw of Cafe du Monde is the french donuts and coffee as well as the history.. but I was disappointed as it was as tasteless and dry as the wait staff. The wait staff were less than friendly. They... More

Every time I'm in New Orleans, I visit Café Du monde. You must overlook the white, sugar covered floors and wait for a table. It's not the friendliest service, but place your order for a chicory coffee and beignets (which come in an order of 3 for $2.42). The pastries are warm, flaky and delicious. Coffee is also $2.42 for... More

Still doing a great job, after so many years. I have been there many times and hope to go back for many more. There is just something about this place, the atmosphere, the people, just very relaxing.
