First time ever eating a beignet and I thought it was wonderful. Not too crowded and the price was right ( 3 for $3.99). Was not happy with my white mocha. After I ordered they said “oh, we don’t do expresso here.” My white chocolate...More

We regret that your coffee did not meet your expectation. Had a manager known I am sure they would have offered you a different beverage. Thank you so much for joining us

We had to stop in for a famous New Orleans beignet and we were not disappointed. Not sure about parking as we walked the short distance from our hotel. Long line to order but it moved quickly and the food was being made fresh in...More

We had a ham omelet and a craw omelet (my first) very different from what I'm used to. Lemonade and Chicory coffee. $30 bucks not bad. Music was free, great musicians, warm sunny day on Bourbon street patio. My kinda start of the day.

This place is busy but has good food. Great coffee and you can get gumbo and red beans for breakfast. Sausage is great- omelets were well made. Nice outside dining area

Beignet were good, hot, fresh. Coffee was good. Scones were terrible and tasted like they had been left in the street. I would save your money.

Did you report the scones to the manager. If there was a problem he should have addressed it for you so you would have not left dissatisfied.

Steaming hot beignets with jazz music in the background. Outdoor setting with little birds to grab your crumbs, if you have any, on the way down. The location, in the middle of Bourbon Street, may dissuade you from visiting this cafe. There are other menu...More

We have tried to create a friendly casual and even family friendly gathering spot on Bourbon Street. With live music (no cover charge) and the lush patio, you can relax and enjoy the made to order beignets.

LOVED this place and the beignets were AMAZING! You can tell about the quality really fast because our beignets were fluffy and warm, and they were big! There is also live jazz. Even though its on Bourbon St, once you sit down you can't really...More

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

We literally just opened in the past week. We are working on getting it added. Could you review and place it on the current one, noting that it is the new location at 600 Decatur St. Thanks so much.
