“Better than Cafe Du Monde”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2014

Hot and a crunch followed by soft dough. With Chickory coffee? The best combo. Plus it does help that is has multiple locations, compare to Cafe Du Monde, where I have to walk down to Jackson Square to get one.

“Quick Beignet Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014

A quick way to grab a beignet breakfast without the Cafe Du Monde crowd. They have a fairly wide breakfast menu, although I did not try anything besides the beignets. What I did see being served did not impress me much. I would stick to the coffee and beignets.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Been here 3 times on this trip. beignets are awesome. We like to come here each morning for coffee and beignets and we finish most evenings with live jazz and a few drinks. Steamboat Willie is wonderful!

“Yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

There are two Cafe Beignet in New Orleans. We ate at the one on Royal st.
I was surprised to see that beignets where not on their menu. It's obvious you sell them but I need to see how many and the cost. Cashier was rude and sarcastic until she herself realized it wasn't on the menu. BUT when we finally got ours it was so good! Cooked perfectly. It was very hot and humid so my unlimited refills of sweet tea was a great plus. It was very nice and cool in the cafe. I have not gotten to eat at the one on bourbon because Everytime we have tried to go it is so packed. Music, food, & fun. No matter which you try we recommend you try it!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

went to the Bourbon st locale. It was 98' with heat index if 103' so it was hot outside, they had tons of fans with mist. so it helped a lot. there was a jazz group playing, very nice for afternoon snack and cooling off break.
