“Heard about it, tried it, loved it.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

The place was a crush of people around 9:30 so we had take out. The beignets were delicious and the iced coffee refreshing. Note, there's too much ice in the ice coffee no matter how hot it is out. There are many times during the day when seats are available to eat in.

“Beignets and chicory!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is a VERY busy tourist attraction. The waitresses did their best but service takes a while. The beignets and chicory are worth the wait, chicory is like coffee. The waitress saw the kids were sweating and brought us 2 small glasses of water for each of us. They use small water glasses, not large ones. You can buy New Orleans items in the gift shop. Everyone should taste a beignet once!

“Fun - Not To Be Missed”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Now keep in mind that they only serve coffee and beignets. Our service was pretty crappy but they are literally just bringing you a couple of items. The beignets were fluffy and covered with powdered sugar, prepare to get said sugar ALL over you. I had a frozen coffee that was wonderful.

It's also pretty neat that it is open 24 hours a day!

The seating is mostly outside and it is REALLY hot but you have to go, it's a landmark and has been in this location since the 1860's, amazing!

Definitely a place everyone has to visit when in New Orleans! You may have to wait in line but it will be well with it. Best donuts ever!
