Popped in for a coffee and could not resist trying the beignets. They were delicious and well worth the money. Staff were very helpful and friendly

Away from the hustle and bustle of the other big Beignet Shop in New Orleans, this was a calm and cute oasis. The beignets were piping hot and fresh even when going at 3pm when business was slower. We had no problem getting a table and also were able to polish the beignets with a bottle of wine, bought also... More

The beignets are better here than any other place. The tables and seating are so so and the bar ok. What makes this otherwise mediocre place great to visit is the Jazz. So if you are a true fan of jazz go in and enjoy. A good diversion from the area around. Go across the street to the hotel for... More

I went for the beignets (of course) and decided to have breakfast while I was here. It is a great outdoor cafe. Even though it was early, it was still hot, but they have misting fans that help keep things cool. There was a live band performing and they sounded great and really created a great ambiance. I enjoyed the... More

One of the nicest outdoor casual food and drink places on Bourbon St. The bands that play there are not well known, but the quality of music is excellent. Their Beignets are topped with lots of icing sugar and a warm Irish coffee makes for a great evening snack as you listen to some memorable jazz favorites

To me you can't beat Cafe Beignet on 311 Bourbon St. They have some of the best beignets in all of New Orleans. Their crawfish omelette isn't bad either. Where else can you set and eat a beignet with either a coffee or Cajun Bloody Mary and listen to great jazz. As soon as I got off the cruise ship... More

We came here multiple times as well while in town for National Youth Gathering. The service was great- it was fast and the food did not disappoint. One of the times we were there, there was a man playing live music and it was rather enjoyable. The beignets were awesome, and as someone else said in the reviews (I agree)... More

This place had wonderful beignets and pastries and from what I've heard is just as good if not better than Cafe du Monde. The lines are not outrageous so to me, I'd prefer Cafe Beignet

This is basically a patio between two other buildings. They only have outdoor seating. They also have lived music all day and evening. Fans and coolers all around. They have good beignets. The tarts look better than they taste, although they are decent. Like most everything on Bourbon street it could use a good pressure washer. However, if you are... More

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.
