No idea why this is famous! The coffee was good as were the doughnuts. I guess we've been now! Very long queues at times. Just come back a different time.

These beignets are fantastics but the service is worse than a cheap fast food lost in the middle of the Wyoming (and i love Wyoming). We took the beignets away and ate em walking around in the streets

It's a crazy adventure just finding a seat. People are entering from both sides and you need to be on the lookout for a table, then scurry to the spot. We got lucky and waited only about 10 minutes, flagged down a server to clean the table. The menu is limited to drinks and the house specialty. We ordered a... More

Coffee and beingets. Nothing else, but they are fantastic. The line may look long, but it moves pretty quick.

I've traveled around the world and when I mentioned to friends I was visiting New Orleans, they recommended Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarters. The crowds suggested I was in for a treat! When I asked for menu, the waitress slammed the napkin holder down and pointed to menu on the side. After we placed order, waitress return with... More

It was my sister's first time and my second trip to New Orleans. No trip here would be complete without their biegnets and rich tasting coffee. I understand that their biegnets set the standard for all others in the city.

The beignets were delicious and the service great , but the long line was not really worth it. There are other places just as good.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
