We stopped here for breakfast and what a treat! Delicious beignet's and refreshing Mimosa's at a great price!

This cute little shop gets crowded for a good reason. The coffee is great, and you can get great beignets and so much more. Worth a stop or two, whether you find a place to sit and relax, or grab your breakfast and take a walk around the French Quarter. I'll be coming back.

Somewhat overpriced. Rustic decor, not too ugly. No sit-down table service. Really uncomfortable chairs indoors. We had the jambalaya as a quick dinner before going to a jazz concert. Surprisingly good, but plastic plates and cutlery.

The coffee and beignets at Cafe Beignet are incredible! Cafe Du Monde is always too busy and Cafe Beignet delivers food that is just as good. And they have more options! Visit the Bourbon Street location and enjoy the live music in the music legends courtyard.

My girlfriend and I walked over to the cafe from our hotel on Bourbon street, and sat outside, enjoyed piping hot fresh beignets, enjoyed live jazz and stayed for hours drinking from the bar. VERY casual, nothing fancy, plastic plates. So if you want fancy this isn't for you, if you want a lovely afternoon with great music & great... More

The best beignets in New Orleans. "Caution": They are made to order and come out as hot as lava. Order a cappuccino and an order of beignets and you will know "life is great".

Poor service, didn't even offer thanks after ordering; more concerned with fellow worker's social life. Long wait for cold nasty tasting beignets. Cafe au lait was equally pathetic and bad. Big mistake taking a friend here, hyping it up; quite frankly embarrassing......

We came to this restaurant more for the atmosphere than the food. It was pretty cool to see a live band playing jazz in the open air while we ate. However, the food was quite pricey, and only somewhat good. We took it as a unique experience, but it wasn't a restaurant that we planned on frequenting. We ordered a... More

Coffee and Cajun hash browns. Good, but not $15 good. Live music and no wait, nice sitting area and friendly staff.

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.
