Been here 3 times on this trip. beignets are awesome. We like to come here each morning for coffee and beignets and we finish most evenings with live jazz and a few drinks. Steamboat Willie is wonderful!

There are two Cafe Beignet in New Orleans. We ate at the one on Royal st. I was surprised to see that beignets where not on their menu. It's obvious you sell them but I need to see how many and the cost. Cashier was rude and sarcastic until she herself realized it wasn't on the menu. BUT when we... More

went to the Bourbon st locale. It was 98' with heat index if 103' so it was hot outside, they had tons of fans with mist. so it helped a lot. there was a jazz group playing, very nice for afternoon snack and cooling off break.

Super big and tasty and sugary and doughy and crunchy beignets. Service is cheerful and friendly, and the coffee is excellent. We went to their courtyard location on Bourbon St., and we really liked it.

Cafe Beignet is in an alcove on Bourbon Street called Music Legends Park. It's a good place for a photo op with statues of Fats Domino, Al Hirt, and Pete Fountain at the entrance. The best thing about Cafe Beignet is the exceptionally good live music that starts at 10 a.m. and continues until Bourbon Street shuts down (music gets... More

We ate at the Bourbon Street location which is inside the Music Legends Park. We went there just for beignets. I was shocked to learn that we had to wait for them to be cooked. With the famous dessert in the name you'd think they would have had them on hand. Not too much of a problem because at least... More

Disappointed that with their reputation, the beignets were not all that great...the centers were still dough. We had much better ones at the City Park. Order taker was super unfriendly also. Seems everyone in the French Quarter is tired of tourists.

Everyone raves about Beignets. I love doughnuts, so I had to try Beignets in New Orleans. Café Beignet was recommended so I went there. The beignets were OK, and I would not reject eating one if offered, but they are nothing special, just a fine, old tradition. The cafe is very busy all day long with lines out the door.... More

With a line out the door I knew this place must have something special. Indeed it did, on the wall hung a "Best Thing I Ever Ate" from Alton Brown of the Food Network. What was the best thing he ever ate? It was the Beignets. I agree it was the best I had in the Big Easy. However the... More
