Went for the Beignet... But would go back for the Crossiant

We had read many reviews, and knew that this was the place to go for a Beignet.... We arrived there approximately 10:00 am, and the line up was approximately 50 people long, so we figured it must be good. It was worth the wait, We ordered an order of the Beignet, 2 coffees and an Almond... read more

Stopped in here for breakfast as we set out to traverse the streets of New Orleans and if you want a Beignet...why not try a place with Beignet in the name. Wonderful indoor and outdoor sitting spaces. Head to the cash register in the back and place your order -- remember three beignets come to an order...which we did not... More

I was first impressed by the cleanliness and the friendly staff. Second I was impressed by the single bottles of champagne that was for sale. I was so tempted to buy one and make myself a Mimosa but I resisted. I ordered the basic breakfast with scrambled eggs which was very good. What was excellent were the slices of fresh... More

While in New Orleans we of course wanted to experience their famed 'Beignets'. We tried twice at Cafe du Monde but the first time we couldn't get any service and the second time the queue was horrendous, so we headed for Cafe Beignet instead. There was a queue here too but it moved quickly and we were able to get... More

This place has great beignets and a wonderful menu! The location on Royal is quaint and they have a Bourbon location built into a cool courtyard that has awesome music and drinks!

Doreen, where Royal Street is a quaint carriage house and small patio, the Bourbon Street location a block away has the live music and courtyard bar. Both are lots of fun with yummy food and drinks. More

Big Portions but price foods, even water. Good Beignets. Good seating. The music was amazing to eat to along with lots of fans/mist to cool off.

I had to try this place mainly because I was comparing beignets to Cafe du Monde. The beignets were a little heavier than the Cafe Du Monde but still delicious. The best part was that there was a great variety of things for breakfast. Loved the crawfish omelet and the Cajun home fries too.

Coming here in the summer means no lines but you deal with the heat. We seated ourselves but waited for a server. No napkins at our table ( the napkin holder contains the menu on the side) so we grabbed one from one of the several empty tables and when our server finally arrived she grabbed it from us, put...

The beignet here aren't as good as the ones at cafe du monde. However, I loved their breakfast, there is also a little courtyard for you to sit and enjoy your food and usually someone is right outside the gates singing.
