Yes the line will probably long and the tables are close together when you get seated but it's the experience! And the beignets are really something special! The line moves along pretty fast but if you don't want to wait for a table there is a "To-go" line on the other side of the awning against the wall. Enjoy!!

I am sorry but the coffee is not very good and the beignets are just not good just a hunk of dough with powder surgar.

This place was just like an assembly line. Employees all looked very serious and tired and all they were doing was serving people as fast as possible. Everyone looked nervous and paranoid. The beignet was just ok. It looked better than how it tasted.The atmosphere was not really enjoyable and we didn't feel welcomed at all. Totally overrated.

Nice place to relax at any time of the day. We went there several times during our stay. Specially nice to end the day with some bignets and coffee.

Beignets are good but you can find other places just as good. Long lineups, dirty table and chairs coated in icing sugar. We found a seat but when we asked a waitress that was sitting on a chair doing nothing to clean our table she replied "just sit done and wait until someone come to clean your table". ... It... More

I definitely recommend making the stop at Cafe Du Monde so you can at least say you did. However, our service was a little bit lacking, I understand it's a tourist trap and they probably get a wide spectrum of people that come in, but our waitress rolled her eyes at us multiple times and had little patience for some...

First off, there's a line. Not to worry, it moves quick, real quick. There must have been 30 people in front of us and total wait time was 10 minutes. The line for inside moves faster than the line for pickup and go. The coffee is great and the beignets are the best ever. It's quick, easy and cheap. Not... More

Ok the beignets at Cafe Du Monde, I personally think are way overrated. But I can say I have been there done that. The beignets taste like funnel cake to me. I guess I was expecting some wonderful flavor. Good and yes warm when they arrive. Busy place!

We went to NOLA for the first time this weekend. We had been told by several that we JUST HAD to go to Café Du Monde for the beignets. We were not impressed. They are pretty and have a lot of powdered sugar on them, but the cake itself isn't sweet. It is very thick and a bit doughy in... More

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.
