Much easier access than Cafe du Monde

After several different tries to sample beignets at Cafe du Monde, I gave up...huge lines and slow turn over rate at the tables. I was happy to discover the Bourbon Street location of Cafe Beignet, which had the added benefit of live jazz performances in the adjacent courtyard. The beignets were... read more

Great little cafe in Legends park. Really nice to sit here and listen to the jazz. There are vouchers on their website and in the tourist books.

Once you have made your obligatory trip to the historic Cafe Du Monde, you will keep coming back to Cafe Beignet for fresher, and fluffier beignets. The Cafe Au Lait is excellent as well. There are two locations. I recommend the one on Bourbon Street in the Musical Legends Park across from the Royal Sonesta hotel. You will be treated... More

After some very, very serious study in to who's beignets were better, I think I was well and truly sold on Cafe Beignet. The coffee was good, ther servie friendly and their beignets were sugary, fresh and perfect. I could eat one right now! Who am I kidding, I'd eat three.

We came here twice during a one-week business trip because the breakfast and coffee are so delicious! We obviously ordered beignets every time - steaming hot, with just the right amount of powdered sugar. Also, their cafe au lait is the best in New Orleans. The way they blend the milk with the chicory coffee is divine - two packets... More

Everyone is talking about getting a Beignet, I can't see the big deal. It is the most tasteless ball of dough I've ever eaten. They are sold in 3's and I gave the rest away. There is no glaze, scant powered sugar. I can live my life just as satisfied if I never eat another one in my life. The... More

day of departure breakfast. We had five hours to kill before heading to the airport, so we stopped here for coffee, beignets and a sausage omelette. The food was good, coffee hot and open air performances. There was a sibling band playing ranging in age from 10 to 24. They played for 1 1/2 hours and we had a grand... More

Outdoor seating in a nice garden atmosphere people watching and you have to love those beignets. Better and less expensive than Café Du Monde.....

Breakfast place not far from my hotel. Nothing fancy. Just tasty. The famous beignets aka French doughnuts. But puffy and extra sugary... The coffee was delicious. The omelets likewise. Staff was super kind and accommodative. I would recommend to go there before 8 am in weekends or during festivals. Less crowded than the famous Cafe du Monde and surely delicious.... More

We came here for breakfast twice during our visit. The first time, we sat outside (do it if the weather is nice). I had the crawfish omelet and my wife had the veggie omelet. Both were plenty and had loads of fresh vegetables that weren't overcooked like some are. I think I liked the beignets here best of all we... More
