“Beignet to go, anyone?”
Review of Cafe du Monde

Cafe du Monde
Ranked #1 of 6 Dessert in Kenner
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 8, 2013

After having Beignet's down in the French Quarter at the original Cafe Du Monde, we were shocked to see one with a drive through out by the airport in Kenner just down the street (about a mile) from our Country Inn. On our way out of town, we drove through and took Beignet's to go for the trip over the Bayou. If you don't know Beignet, it is a french pastry served hot, flakey and dusted with powdered sugar. Definitely worth the trip!

This is the best coffee in the world and the beignets are awesome. The location of Jackson Square is an absolute must place to sit, eat and talk with friends or family. It is a one of kind and will highlight your trip top NOLA. The little kids love the beignets and will talk about them all the way home.

You don't get the atmosphere of the downtown location, but this sure is a convenient location close to I-10. Same fantastic beignets!!

We tried to go in the French Quarter but traffic was impossible and parking nowhere to be found. Imagine our delight when driving around Kenner looking for a place for dinner we found a suburb location of Cafe Du Monde. So after eating dinner down the street at a great seafood place popular with the locals (on the corner), we walked a few doors and had our beignets. Granted, you're not in the FQ ans lose that ambiance of outdoors, but this was a good substitute. They still have the quaint small round tables and beignets are just as good.

the beignets are good also, but if you need a good cup of coffee, this is worth the stop. They have a drive through which makes it convenient when you need to get on the road.
