We had a very poor experience at Cafe Du Monde, but wanted to try beignets and other local food anyway. It did not disappoint. The beignets could be slighly more fresh, but all in all, we liked the food.

Can't say enough good things about this place! Live music, excellent food, and drink service at your table. No long wait like some other beignet cafes, and a fantastic atmosphere.

Lots of fried food on the menu, maybe all the food. The food Great to sit on Bourbon St in the atmosphere and listen to the music. Not crowded like some of the bars.

When arriving at this place you think your going to have the perfect New Orleans breakfast. It is the cutest spot tucked right in the center of the French Quarter. But i was disappointed with the food. It was defiantly nothing special. The bread wasn't the freshest and the beignets are not worth the calories. The service was great but... More

As this treat is well advertised as something special in New Orleans, we came upon this eatery as one that specializes in serving up fresh sugar donuts. I can honestly say that their donut in comparison to Cafe du Monde (French Market) is inferior. There just wasn't anything special about. Service was meh.Hype for their main product of interest,beignet,is great... More

The food is all fine, but just average. Far better places to eat in NOLA. However, the music goes on all day long and is fantastic. When you need a break, just find a seat, order a drink, munch on some fried okra and enjoy.

They offer full breakfasts (served on paper plates :(...). Beignets were just ok, believe it or not they don't serve them with enough powdered sugar!). Coffee choices were great, lots of options. A good choice if you have folks in your group who dont just want beignets, but if you really do want just beignets we all know where you... More

We ate here for breakfast one morning because it was near our Bourbon St. hotel and they served andouille omelets. We should have known better, as most Bourbon St. restaurants are not the best. Our breakfast of 2 omelets, iced tea and coffee (black) was $38. The omelets were tough with very little flavor. It came with French bread (not... More

Nice little place to go for breakfast and a beignet where the food is good but not great. It gives you a taste of NO but move on to another spot for flavor and service.

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.
