Everyone seems to be raving about this place but the coffee is nothing special at all. Quite disappointing and mediocre. The beinets are pretty good and service is fast just don't expect amazing coffee.

We have visited NOLA twice in the last two years. Can't imagine a visit without a beignet from Cafe Du Monde. Open 24 hours. Busy during the day, but quiet at night.

Tried 3 different beignets around NOLA, and these were by far the best! Very busy place, but the staff were very friendly. Hot and fresh! Excellent!

We came here while strolling through NOLA and there was a long line. We enjoyed a coffee, hot chocolate, and a beignet. It is a traditional place and it is fun.

Really don't see what the fuss is about Cafe Du Monde. We visited purely because its so famous, and I was very disappointed. For a start, just to make it clear for those of you know don't know: they *only* do beignets. (French fried doughnut)....More

Went here on the recommendation of a friend to try the beignets. The place was very busy-which is always a good sign but the take away queue was a bit shorter so we bought the doughnuts from there. They were very tasty indeed. You get...More
