Hotel front desk guided me to this cafe instead of going to down town for bignet. It is in a mall near hotel and I am pleased to their service. Mall is quite, not much activity, bu have a good Macy's store for some evening time pass

Can't beat New Orleans Beignets. Why but doughnuts when one can have delicious coffee from Cafe Du Monde

Very nice cafe with the original begneits without having to go downtown. Close to the airport so u can pick up a souvenir mug or mix on the way out of town. The begneits were fresh and the hot chocolate is always a favorite of mine. The staff was friendly.

Well, what can I say? Coming from Florida we decided to go total tourist in New Orleans. Our first stop was here and we were surprisingly surprised at how good the beignet were. They come loaded with powdered sugar and are just delicious. I wasn't crazy for the coffee but the hot chocolate was tasty. There was a trumpet player... More

Saw long lines yesterday and wanted to know what they knew that I didn't . Well a treat not to be missed with lovely coffee and beignet(deep fried choux pastry) and enjoyed every last calorie. Cafe not posh or pretentious but very busy and service efficient and $6 a head felt like good value. Recommend it highly.

The Beignets were absolutely woonderful. I also recommend the praline cookies. This was a more convenient location away from the crowded Jackson Square.

This is a must-do, genuine New Orleans stop that proves you tried the local treats. Please don't bother trying to wipe off the tables covered with powered sugar! It's futile and it shows you're an amateur. The hand dryers in the restroom will successfully blow it off your clothes. But Beignet eaters wear their powder as a badge of honor.... More
