Frankly, I liked this stop better than the other more famous beignet place. The service was FAST and friendly. We got a table with no issue. They had a good jazz band. I took the extra two beignets back to the hotel and heated them...More

The beignet is amazing. I am glad I don't live near these. I would eat them daily! White powdered sugars looks like fresh snow!

This particular location is in the Jazz Memorial Park, and it’s the park that makes it worth three stars, otherwise, eh. The food is a bit pricey for the portions, though the prices are decent. I had the jambalaya (see photo), small, comes with a...More

Musical Legends Park is a great outdoor venue with free entertainment most of the day. Our menu is diverse from beignets & pastries to sandwiches and a few hot dishes. We hope you will try one of our three cafes again and let us know.

I asked if the beignets contained eggs or milk and I was informed by the cashier that they did not. I discovered afterwards that this was a lie. They merely wanted to make a sale and had no regard for the health concerns of their...More

Amy, we are glad that we spoke and were able to work this out. With your help in identifying the staff member who did not know the correct answer, we were able to remind all our staff that our beignets are not Vegan. Hopefully you...More

This restaurant is a step above many of the tourist traps in the French Quarter. In spite of the fact that it is on Decator, the service is great. It is not over crowded and the food is great. You can people watch and enjoy...More

Well advertised, it is a nice place, but nothing extraordinary. Live music and beer are enjoyable, food is not their best. Beignet are tasty. Recommended for pre- or after-dinner.

The best omelette I've ever eaten. Great jazz and don't forget the beignets. They're the best. Light hot and smothered in icing sugar. You're going to get dusted no matter what you do to prevent it. These are a series of cafes that are a...More

Their Beignets may be the best thing I have ever eaten and go will with their excellent coffee on a cool morning. The three piece jazz band was very entertaining and not too loud. We also tried their muffalatta (average) and gumbo (awful). I still...More

We drove by intending to go to Cafe DuMonde but were attracted to the big windows and bright open atmosphere of Cafe Beignet so stopped here instead. Great choice I think because in the end the beignets were scrumptious and the atmosphere was so good....More

We preferred the Beignets here vs du Monde, both amazing. The Beignets are lighter and have less dough. Now this place is small and I can see how the wait would deter people. Also this is the only location that we saw. Very nice place,...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

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.
