First of all, the beignets are AMAZING, and such a great value - 3 for $2. The atmosphere of the building is awesome, and the park it is in is even better. Definitely worth a stop for the whole package - a great little snack in a gorgeous area, where you can definitely see the beauty New Orleans can offer.

I've always been one who could take or leave Beignets and I don't drink coffee!! But I must say, Beignets and a good ole fashion coke is pretty delicious. The patio has a very nice view of the park area that looks over the brook and the beautiful gazebo and pavillion structure. The beignets were fresh. I enjoyed a great conversational snack with my cousins. Great place to take a break with a cup of coffee(or coke).

Interesting building. Reminds me of the bath houses in Hot Springs, AR. Coffee was delicous. Beignets were excellent. Table service available.

Morning Call, the historical and equally iconic competitor of Cafe Du Monde, has re-established itself in the beautiful and super-convenient Casino building in City Park, steps away from the New Orleans Museum of Art, the sculpture garden and amid the park's beautiful lagoons, gardens, and giant moss festooned oaks. The exterior and patio dining area are superb. The interior is a well done, slightly grander and more serviceable recreation of the old Morning Call. Go to their website for historic photos of the original French Market location (supposedly given up for the Metairie location in a coin toss with the owner of CDM). I've always thought Morning Call's beignets and cafe au lait were a little better than CDMs (probably because they made more, smaller batches, so orders are fresher) and that impression is more pronounced at this City Park location. They also offer some other food items, but I've not tried any of those. I would expect that they're pretty (maybe very) good, since MC has been very conservative in any kind of expansion. They are open 24/7 only closing Christmas day. Late at night, it may seem a little weird to navigate through City Park, but there is security around and the ambiance of a foggy night in the park is about as cool and "N'awlins" as it gets. This is a family friendly place. It is NOT and never was a gambling casino. It's architecture is Spanish Mission revival like a Spanish "casino," a club or Mexican "cantina."
