Stop here during your visit and enjoy some beignets and a drink. The history of the place and the beignets worth the trip and are a welcome break in the heat of NOLA.

Buy extra!no one else around town makes them as good! You will spend the rest of the visit trying to find and satisfy your cravings for the original beignets!

Our kids fell in love with beignets, these ones especially. I think it was all the icing sugar that covered them. The price was reasonable and the line moved quickly. There were 2 lines one for dining in and the other for take-out. They only serve beignets, coffee and water.

It's cash only. Beignets were great! It's cash only. There is a souvenir shop across the street and down a few doors, buy your coffee and beignet mix there! There are street musicians to entertain you while you eat.

We tried beignets at other restaurants but nothing compared to those at Cafe du Monde. Be prepared for an informal experience with street musicians beside you on the sidewalk. A great option for breakfast or an after dinner snack with coffee.

We had to visit Cafe Du Monde once on our recent trip to New Orleans. Love the beignets, not so much the service. We don't care for the chicory coffee, so we ordered beignets with a soft drink and water. The lady that served us appeared to be mad about something when she approached our table. No greeting, nor a... More

Very delicious! You need the small glass of water to clean your hands and clothing from the powdered sugar. But it's WELL WORTH the minor mess!

As in the title, I would recommend that you go for coffee and beignets - they are delicious! It is also a good place to people-watch, so do be sure to take your camera.

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.
