The food is just as good at the one in the French market. Of course the atmosphere isn't as nice but suits locals fine. I wish they would take credit cards. Have cash handy since the restaurants, at all locations I've been, are cash only.

I have been eating beignets for 22 yrs so I know what they should taste like. Unfortunately, it was my boyfriends first time so he had no clue. They were cold and hard. Picked them up at the drive thru so maybe that was the problem. Never again. French Quarter only from now on.

Love this place! Their beignets are delicious! A trip to NOLA is not complete without coming to Cafe du Monde at least once. There is usually a little bit of a wait to get seated and served during breakfast time (and it's a little crowded), but we keep this in mind when we visit. We ate here for breakfast and desert while in town for a funeral. Can not go wrong with going to Cafe Du Monde.

An historic place you have to visit when you go in New Orleans. Their Cafe au Lait, hot, cold or frozen is EXCELLENT ! Their beignet (do not mistake with doughnut) are unique and a must-try if you visit the place. I suggest you go to the one on Decatur near the French Market, but their other locations serves also the same thing, just the ambiance is different.

For those who criticise the place for the "sloppy staff", "not impressed" or whatever else, I hope you did not hope for an high-end place, because this is not what it is all about. It is a renoun BEIGNET and CAFE AU LAIT place, that's all!

A must-go, must-try and must-see!
