Nice little quiet spot located in a park. It is a great area for late night coffee and benigets. Our waiter was very attentive. Wish I had of found this sooner and able to enjoy the park during the day. The fact they stay open 24 hours is a plus

Poor Morning Call. Such a venerated Metairie establishment has been plagued with a bad neighbor, mainly, the cigar shop next door. The poor ventilation means that the atmosphere is smoky/hazy, and the place stinks. The beignets were good, but not worth all of the toxic second hand smoke that I had to breathe. The waitress said that they were getting... More

Beignets and service was superb! Beignets were soft, you get to sprinkle your powdered sugar on top, the iced coffee was delicious as well but ask for whipped cream on top as an added flavor.

We took a city tour and we were the first family to enter the restaurant. The waiter was maybe in his 60's. I asked for the menu. He sarcastically pointed at the paper towel holder. So, I ordered Jambalaya sandwich among other items. He told me to pay me immediately. I did and he stood there for the tip. I... More

Best coffee and donuts in Metairie. A visit to Morning Call always makes my visits to New Orleans complete.

This purveyor of the Cafe au lait and beignets still serves the coffee and hot milk served from the huge pots with the large spouts. For some reason I think that makes it take better than their competitors. Besides the coffee and beignets they serve a diverse menu of such favorites as Red Beans and Rice and Crawfish etouffee. The... More

I love their donuts as they're the best, however, at this location the oil must be old as it's never changed-leaving the donuts tasting not so great. Please change out your oil on a regular basis. The coffee is always wonderful.

I love beignets, but I do NOT go to the French Quarter(due to crime). They are always hot and delicious. They also gave my daughter a paper hat with their logo on it-which was a nice touch.

Touring through New Orleans and not finding enough coffee centric shops? This is where old-time residents come to. No locals are ashamed to show their faces here with their out-of-towners. Better beignets than that other beignet place.
