Tasty Indeed

I must admit that I almost passed up trying the beignets here. They seemed so overated for a piece of fried dough saturated in powdered sugar but we happened along the cafe late one night when the crowds were gone and decided to pick up an order before we headed to our hotel.

Ok, tourist thing. Not worth waiting in la long line for. It is a nice thing to say you have came and done but it is not some amazing coffee or benigt. I think if you visit try to do it once, remember it's open 24 hours so wait for the line to die down.

At the end of a hugely enjoyable holiday, we had hoped to sign off in this beautiful place. The band was great, the setting was great, but all was neutralised by a young waitress with glasses who gave my partner the filthiest of looks when he didn't see that he was in her way. When politely mentioned to her, she... More

Very popular place for beignets. They keep the line moving though! Not a terribly long wait. Beignets are fresh and good. they only offer chickory coffee, unfortunately!

We have been to Cafe' du Monde before and it was good. We dropped by there again and it was packed as usual. We decided we didn't want to wait in a long line with the hoards and not have a table to sit at so we tried Cafe Beignet on Bourbon Street. It sits back in a little courtyard.... More

Went to Cafe Beignet because to the good reviews that I read about and just as they said the beignets were great. The location is central and easy to find but space is very limited. I would advise anyone going there to get there early because the line gets long fast and seating is a premium. Depending where you sit... More

This place was recommended to us to try the beignets. The idea is cute. Has an outdoor patio to eat on, cute. We actually almost left because the display where the sweet stuff is all laid out for purchasing was full of gnats. That really grossed me out. Also, the trash cans were full and gnats were flying everywhere. We... More

2 locations close to our hotel provided a quick bite to eat. The beignets are awesome, and huge, plenty to share! Shady courtyard and street entertainers complete the stop!

I think they need to just stick to Beignets, coffee, and baked goods. We were hungry for a solid breakfast but the omelettes, potatoes, and breakfast sandwich were kind of yucky. Super plain and boring. But the beignets were great and the setting is fun.
