We have been eating here for years. Now found there are 2 other shops in the same area. So when in Orange beach or Gulf Shores you can get a sweet treat as good as New Orleans. Lemon was a nice change, Yum.

Sounds crazy but right next to the Laundromat, so great place to go while the wash is spinning. Delicious beignets and coffee. The smell is so tempting you can't go by it without stopping for beignets.

Beignets were heavier than I like and cook was rude to waitress. Really enjoyed the ones stuffed with pudding. Ordered 2 dozen and the wait wasn't too long.

After reading the reviews of how rude the staff was, I almost didn't go in the place. Glad my inner fat girl took over and forced me inside. The beignets were perfect. Melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Fresh. Cheap. And the woman who took our order was absolutely 100% nice and helpful.

I LOVE beignets! They are supposed to melt in your mouth, but these were a little too chewy to qualify. Cute place and friendly staff, but it all comes down to the product, and these were just sweet treats.

Arrive early to get beignets they close at 12ish! LOL They were hot, puffy and delicious. Worth dealing with the snooty help!

The guy in the back Rodney is rude!! If you eat there and the beignets have a sour taste don't eat them ! The refrigerator is going out be careful with the milk to. Just want to give everyone a heads up. These were taken in 15-30 minute intervals this is not normal!

My wife and I have eaten here before and found the beignets to be as good as this you get in the French quarter, so as we were headed to see a friends son place baseball, we stopped and picked up a couple of orders. When we started eating them, the dough seemed really heavy and the taste was off.... More

I truly enjoy their beignets, they melt in your mouth. As far as the service, I had no problems with anyone being surly, and if I had, it would have been like eating at home.

Thank Jim K
