Good coffee, great Beignet's. I've also had breakfast there before. Very cute little spot to get away from some of of hustle and bustle of the busier spots.

Even with a line that reached out to the road, we got our order in within 20 minutes and delivered to our table in another 15. Omelette's were fantastic, Coffee great, and Beignet's DELICIOUS!!!

This is of the Bourbon St. store front - Royal was closed during our visit. Came for a quick breakfast. There was a long line but it moved reasonably fast - not sure if that was related to the grumpy staff disposition or not :-). Beignets, yogurt, breakfast sandwich and Au Laits. Food was good, places to sit were quite... More

The beignets were delicious and def satisfied my craving. The location was great because we got to sit outside and listen to live music while eating delicious powdery goodness!

Wife and I both agreed that the beignets were better here than Cafe Du Monde. Also split a croissant breakfast sandwich, but wasn't a big deal. Would go back just for the beignets.

We love Cafe AuLay and beignets and we happened on this little gem. The coffee and beignets were so good and the atmosphere so nice that we returned the next two days too!

The beignets and cajun omelettes are out of this world. We navigated the crowds with my wife in a mobility scooter and learned some tips. First, don't have everyone in your party stand in line. Have one or more grab a table. Then designate one person (or maybe two) to stand in line. Then have the rest of the group... More

We discovered this place via Tastebud Tours, and I am SO disappointed that we did not make it back before we left! :( The beignets were delightful and very fresh, and the drink I ordered (Mardi Gras morning) was SO good! (It was comparable to a White Russian, if I had to draw a comparison.) My husband enjoyed a spiked... More

We stopped here as part of a dessert tour. The beignets are wonderful. There was a long line but it moves very, very quickly. Would go again!!

What can I say. It's an institution and must do in NOLA. We sampled beignet's at a number of places and these are by far the best.
