Simple restaurant. Beignets were very good. Went there because Cafe du Monde was closed for renovations. Not disappointed at all! Beignets was excellent. I love how they provide the powdered sugar in paper bags to shake. Hot chocolate was also very good. Not a busy spot so it was a great place to chat with friends.

My wife grew up in New Orleans, so for her birthday we decided to take a weekend trip back. We woke up in the hotel and checked TripAdvisor for a place nearby for breakfast. Morning Call was near the top of this list and at the top of my wife's list. It was a very nostalgic visit for my wife... More

I've been going to Morning Call Coffee Stand in Metarie for 30+ years. The same "cash only" coffee place and the same waiter for the last 30+ years; open 24 hours a day!

Nothing like a little coffee and some good ole beignets and the obligatory powdered sugar cloud you wear on occasion when eating beignets with your best friends. Good place to get some good hot coffee or hot chocolate.

When we come to town to visit, we always go here once. it is always the same. The beignets are light and crisp, the powdered sugar mill requires a deft hand to make sugar appear, and the coffee is divine. For those who work here and preserve the best kind of history, thank you.

Great! Open all the time. If you have a craving,, perfect! Don't wear black you will happily be covered in powdered sugar. But you will be very happy to do so.

The Morning Call is the go to place for beignets and cafe au lait. They have been around since the 19th century and know how to make a cup of coffee. Beignets with powdered sugar and a cup of cafe au lait at the Morning Call is a great way to start or end your day.

I am a NOLA native and I just want everyone who comes to New Orleans to know they really have to do Morning Call to get Real New Orleans
