We had beignets and coffee every morning here while in town, great food, a little of a wait, but food served hot and fresh! Service was good, small eatery but it our new favorite!! We like it better than the "famouS"" beignet place:)

Having never had beignets before, I have no frame of reference. That said, we loved them. Luckily, our hotel was just a few doors down, and I could swing by every morning and take a bag back to the hotel for a fix. Downside: Very slow service Wish we had beignets in Arizona...

We went for the beignets and cafe at lait so we can't speak to the other offerings. They do have a lot of other food options, but we were looking for the classic experience and to compare to cafe du monde. We loved cafe du monde, but found we were happier with cafe beignet. Beignets were comparable to slight better,... More

Stopped specifically for beignets! Deliciousness! Came out piping hot, and were still very warm by the time we got back to our hotel room. Wasn't disappointed!

We waited twenty mins in line just to order, then another 45 mins for our food...we ordered nothing special, breakfast sandwich and cajun hashbrowns. Portion size was on the small side and the prices are a bit on the high side. Cant say we will be back or we would recommend this place to friends

I stopped by Café Beignet (bourbon street location) during my food tour of New Orleans. I had previously been to Café Du Monde, so I was interested in comparing the beignets and the Café Au Lait. I will say that I preferred the beignets and coffee here at Café Beignet. The dough did not seem as dense, and there was... More

The breakfast was superb and at a good price. Topped off with fluffy beignets was heaven. The atmosphere was relaxing and just added to the wonderful experience.

We ate lunch here on our last day and it was a pleasant way to end our trip. The beignets were good though more dense than those at cafe du monde. The roast beef po boys were to die for and it was ouside with musical entertainment.

No, I did not eat beignets here believe it or not.... I had an andouille sausage omelet for lunch and gumbo for dinner. It is a nice little friendly place with good food. You can eat either indoors or out. Order at the counter and they bring your meal. Lunch was so good I went back for dinner. And it's... More
