So yummy. All they sell are beignets and coffee. Also, seating can be a challenge so be prepared to hover over a table in order to swoop it as soon as the current guests are finished. It is also cask only. The service is fast...More

We walked right in and got a seat! There was not a line as it had been in the past. The beignets were fresh and delicious.

Crowded and in the middle of the smelly French Quarter, but you go for the begneits and coffee and the experience of being there. Put it on your list.

If I’d seen the bathroom before I ate there, I might not have, but the beignets are tasty. No waiting line in early evening.

A little cramped but enjoyable. Perfectly located in the Riverwalk Mall and respectable prices. Service was delightful and quick even with the long lines.

Great place. Jazz playing right outside. Service is fast and delicious! It's right by the Jackson square and close to numerous restaurants and shops. Dont leave NOLA without visiting this cafe.

The beignets were perfect and delicious. Service was fast and great. The only downside was it wasn’t the cleanest place, probably because it’s so busy. Our glasses were dirty with lipstick still in one of them so that was kinda gross. And not the best...More

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

Like the answers above, I recommend a direct contact to the management. Perhaps the oil is peanut oil. Be safe. Contact them.

I preferred Cafe du Monde (heavier dough), my wife liked Cafe Beignet (lighter & slightly fluffy). Prices higher at Cafe Beignet but the atmosphere is also nicer.
