Found this local deli and really enjoyed a New Orleans staple of beignets. we got the plain ones but the fillings look appetizing as well. Made fresh while you wait - you can't beat the flavor!

The first day we are in Gulf Shores, my father-in-law always comes here to get beignets for the family. These are wonderful when they are eaten hot. They have a variety, but we have always gotten the plain ones that are covered with powdered sugar. We usually take them out, but they are best if you eat them immediately.

If you are in Orange Beach, this is a must! Only open until 12. Go early. It is worth it. People there are very friendly. Cash only, but they have an ATM.

Our kids really enjoyed getting a dozen, hot, fresh beignets for breakfast. We had excellent, fast service.

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!
