Everyone in my party wanted to go to Cafe Du Monde. The wait was to long.We went back down the street and to eat here. I had made beignets before from the Cafe Du Monde box and was not impressed. We ate here without a wait had a nice seat right out side. They were really good. I couldn't understand that they were not busy. Even though the waiter said that Cafe Du Monde was the original. He like his better. We tried the other place latter on and I was not impressed. I prefer the beignets here. They are more flaky not as doughy.
