Delicious beignets, 3 per order. Service is friendly, you can sit in or outside. Coffee is strong but good. Great place for breakfast or an afternoon sugar and coffee fix!

A must have when visiting NOLA. Warm light and fluffy along with great coffee. Went to Bourbon Street location and enjoyed courtyard setting.

After going to cafe du Monde we needed something to compare it to. This cafe is very sweet, comfortable and in my opinion better beignets. They were lighter and tastier. We had a sandwich here and can only sat it was ok. Coffee is very strong. We went to the Royal St location.

We always go to Café Du Monde for beignets, but heard some people say that Café Beignet was better and decided to give it a try since it was closer to our hotel. It's a cute café with both indoor and outdoor garden seating, although the doors to the indoor section were wide open and there were at least four... More

We went first thing in the morning. There are sculptures of famous jazz musicians at the front of the café. You sit outside and can enjoy the music. Needless to say, the beignets were wonderful. You get three large beignets loaded with powered sugar!

We were walking by and decided to drop in for a quick bite. The club sandwich was delicious. This is a nice place for lunch. The outside seating are is also a cat sanctuary of some kind and there were several cats hanging around.

Only place on Bourbon street where you can listen to live Jazz 14 hours a day. Coffee was good and so was the Beignet.

Café du Monde is a definite must do...once. Or more if you are in the area. Don't miss out on Café Beignet because it doesn't have all the hype. I enjoyed the Beignets more there, and made the Royal Street location my breakfast spot for several days during my stay. Friendly staff and quick table service.

This outdoor experience on Bourbon Street left us wanting clean tables. The food was ordinary, though tasty. The Gumbo was good. We enjoyed listening to some old timer jazz musicians who played from the outdoor stage in the New Orleans Memorial Park garden and passed the hat. Be generous. They look like they need our help.

Just a block from Hotel Monteleone is a small cafe with a nice outdoor patio that serves wonderful beignets. The Cafe Beignet has other food as well and of course, serves Community Coffee. Don't waste your time going to Cafe Du Mond. The service at Cafe Beignet is much better and beignets even better!
