Although maybe I shouldn't say it - it was nice having a shorter line! The beignets are equally as good as Cafe du Monde but the coffee here is sooo much better. It is also clean and quirky. Loved it.

Yes, I liked the beignets better than at Cafe du Monde. That being said, they were considerably more expensive (and larger). You can't go wrong at either place.

As with most folks, I walked into this place because it's different. A quaint little bistro tucked in a garden full of jazz and jazz statues, this place has amazing ambiance. Sadly, I wasn't that thrilled with the food. My Beignets weren't nearly as good as those I got at Cafe Du Monde last year. Also, the tables are pretty... More

Glad we could say we tried it, and experienced a New Orleans tradition, but didn't think these things were the greatest food ever invented. If you want to sit down get in the very long line to the left. If you just want to pick up, get in the line on the right :)

Quaint and full of character--both the setting and the beignets. Never had them before so I cannot compare to any others, but these were divine, succulent and rich without being boggy. And if an outdoor cafe can be a 'hidden hole-in-the wall' then this qualifies, melding seamlessly as it does into the tiny Music Legends Park. The good tastes were... More

Had beignets and shrimp po-boy. Beignets were very, very good - nice and light more like a fritter. Best beignets I've had in NOLA so far. Po-boy sandwich was simple but just good food if that's what you are after. You sit in the courtyard and enjoy the live music while you eat. A very welcome change from the bars... More

We stopped by in the evening for dinner and drinks. It was very reasonable for drinks and the Muffelata I had wasn't the best but it was pretty darn good. My husband ordered the seafood gumbo and it wasn't great and it was a small plastic bowl. He didn't think it was enough food for dinner or for the price.... More

Had our 1st new orleans breakfast here on the first sunday in november. Having jetlag paid off as we were sat down just after 8am and there was a constant queue thereafter whilst we dined. Wonderful intro to new orleans cuisine; the beignets are a must just because!
