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.

Very uncomfortable! We arrived at 11:20am. We were asked to pay before the waitress took our order because the gentleman wanted to close out the drawer.

Hot and moist little bomb. I didn't like the fried oil smell when we walked in but if you go for beignets it's great. I wouldn't like them cold though.

We usually take the beignets out. They get home still hot, and delicious. Not a gut bomb like some I have had. Limited hours!

Cute little shop with decent assortment of really good donuts. The beignets are also really good - not New Orleans of course, but best you will find in Gulf Shores!
