Can't go to New Orleans and not stop in for our beignets and chicory coffee. Always good, always hot and always a must!

You have to go to Cafe Du Monde when in NO right? I almost didn't go because the line was SO long. Don't let this stop you. Moves very fast. We were in within 5 minutes. Keep in mind: They accept cash only.

New Orleans staple...great experience. Avoid wearing black the day you visit to avoid evidence of all the powdered sugar!

Stopped in for beignets and coffee. As always it was amazing. If you visit New Orleans you must stop at the original at Jackson Square.

Enjoyed our beignets via takeout our first visit but decided to sit down the second time around. Either we were in a short staffed section or no one was assigned to us as we had a long wait even while tables all around were being attended to. Beignets were still worth it though!

Several people told us to go and it was horrible. Totally a tourist trap, bad service and no expressos. You have literally no options... dont go.

Went here on one of the last days of our trip. The coffee and beignets were tasty but I don't know if this place is worth all the hype it gets. We had excellent coffee and beignets at other places as well in New Orleans. If there is no line up it is worth trying for sure, but I wouldn't... More

Sometimes it is easy to dismiss others reviews, but don't....the coffee and beignets were mouthwateringly delicious. As of this weekend the price was $2.73 for a regular cafe latte and $2.73 for a single order of beignets (3 per order). Make the time, and stand in the queue if there is one because it is truly worthy of your time.

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.
