Great Music Cafe !

Check out my travel blog : www.victoriasxcape.com Cafe Beignet had a Music Legend Park with live jazz musicians which we really enjoyed. The beignets also came in three for a price of $3.99, no exactly sure why it was so much more expensive. The flavor was a little better to me but the texture... read more

Excellent location to step away from the wild Bourbon Street activity but still be right in it. The Jazz musicians were fun to listen to and added a great atmosphere. Beignet's were outstanding. You can wait in line and overpay at the other popular beignet location, but I'd recommend coming here. Service was quick and food was great.

Café Beignet makes the beignets to order and we can still deliver them fast and fresh out of the fryer. Thanks for the nice review. More

Not only were the beignets delicous (had to come back several times during the week to get my fill), the live music made this the perfect place to stop and relax for a moment (especially with kids) to enjoy the French Quarter's!

From my very first visit I was hooked. The beignets are fabulous and a generous serving. I make it a point to stop here first every time I'm in NOLA. Lucky for me my brother lives right on Decatur and it's a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Royal St. Location. I've met a lot of nice people while... More

The service at Cafe du monde was awful so we decided to try this place! Glad we did. The beignets were better, more powdered sugar and not as crunchy as cafe du monde. And the service was better. All we tried was the beignets tho, I don't know about the rest of the food. They had a pretty good sized... More

We went here to give them a try and it was awful. The beignets were grease-soaked and flat. The coffee was not hot and did not even taste like a cafe au lait. It tasted like a coffee from the gas station. My daughter ordered a cold coffee and took one drink and dumped it. Would not recommend at all!

Food was good for a somewhat quick spot. Omelets were weird in how they made them and gritz were not my favorite.

Grits are one of those misunderstood foods - loved by some and not by others. We appreciate your visit! More

Best Beignet ever, on Bourbon St. tucked all the way in the back. The Beignet is a must, but if not there food is good also. right next to it a nice spot for drinks afterwards.
