I've reviewed this café before but they hit a new low. In the last two years they started charging for a cup of water. 27cents to be exact, including tax. I know because 2 years ago I worked for them and water was free. This Spring a gentleman walked in carrying his small dog and asked for a cup of... More

We stopped here on the way out of town to get beignets for the drive home and this place did not disappoint. Small place, but food was great!

Great place for a Treat after your morning walk or anytime of the day for that matter. We have been coming South in the Winter for sum time now and always look forward to our visits to the Cafe Beignets of Alabama.

We hit this place every snowbird season, but this year once was enough. The beignet are great, they match, or exceed Cafe du Monde in NOLA, but there has been a change in the attitude of the help. Show up there after 11:00 and they let you know they are out the door by noon, and that means they're going... More

I can't rate the food because we were immediately scolded as my family walked in that we couldn't have outside drinks--loud enough for all customers to look our way. All I had was a cup of black coffee in my own mug. We intended to eat our full of beignets and coffee drinks in this establishment. As I returned my... More

The food is great. The people are not overly friendly but they work fast and the food is good. Only thing you need to know is they only accept cash and check.

DO NOT GO!!! we have had beignets in charleston sc and they were wonderful. This place should be shut down. I don't know how they got a 94 with the health Dept that is posted on their wall. When you walk in you, can see the place is filthy. The carpet is almost black from dirt buildup and under all... More

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!
