I love Cafe Beignet. I usually go there instead of Cafe DuMonde because it is not crowded. The place is small but has outdoor seating as well. The beignets and cafe' au lait are just what a small town cajun girl needs every now and then. Both are very tasty.

This cute looking cafe is around the corner from our hotel so we decided to give it a shot. Coffee was good. Beignets slightly overcooked but still tasty. It is more intimate than Cafe du Monde (and air conditioned!) but lacked the excitement and energy.

We had a marvelous breakfast here and enjoyed the best beignets in NOLA in my opinion. Their idea of hash browns were not what we expected but were excellent...more like potatoes O'Brian...diced spuds, onion, sausage...great. Omelets were terrific and I enjoyed a pecan waffle.

I tried and compared the beignets from this location and Cafe du Monde and by far I enjoyed this location over the world famous Cafe du Monde. Better texture and overall flavor.

Likes - beignets and café au lait are pretty good. Beignets as good as Café Du Monde. Went back on another evening and heard some pretty good music for free. Dislikes - was over $40 for three of us to have pretty basic breakfast. I think that is expensive for a meal served on Styrofoam.

We sat outside in the courtyard and ate our breakfast. It was relaxing except for the aggressive little birds. Don't leave your food unguarded. They will try to steal it. Girl behind the counter taking the orders was efficient and food came quickly. Desserts were good! Very reasonably priced. Recommended.

We had been by Café Du Monde and seen the 45 minute line and decided to pass on that and try the beignets at Café Beignet , we went to the one on Royal St,The place itself is very quaint and pretty but later in the week we sampled the Beignets at Café du Monde and they tasted lighter somehow....better..

Didn't go there for the beignets, I went there for breakfast. Greatest decision. Difficult to fnd, as Yelp had it on the corner. I found it ironic to have a shared courtyard between the Police Dept ND a bakery. The crawfish omlette was great and the grits were fine. Parking was difficult t best, but the Quarter is never good.... More

Grabbed coffee and beignets. Made to order and excellent. There were full breakfasts coming out that looked fabulous! The setting is very quaint. With a great outdoor seating area.

This café was a pleasant surprise, stopped for coffee and beignets while taking a stroll down Bourbon Street. Sat in the courtyard, listening to soft jazz, enjoying the excellent beignets, possibly the best in town. Atmosphere and quality of the beignets are much better than the celebrated Café Du Monde.
