“good beignets, but that's it”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

it's fine if you only want a cafe au lait & beignet. There were long lines but they went quick. The wait staff barely spoke English.

“less crowded than jackson square location”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

the beignets were delicious, if you've never had them before, one order is enough for 2 people. the cafe au lait is also delicious. the cans of coffee they sell is cheaper here than if you go to a gift shop so pick it up here.

“Great cafe au lait and beignets”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I loved the cafe au lait and beignets. There was way too much powdered sugar for me, though. It got everywhere. You look polka dotted when you leave.

“Beignets & Coffee”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

It is what it is...beignets & coffee. Good quality; coffee was excellent. I prefer a beignet that the recipe is similar to cream puff dough/batter as compared to a yeast dough but Café Du Monde makes a good, consistent, beignet.

“A must visit”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is one place you must visit when visiting New Orleans. The menu is basic- coffee and beignets is the best way to start your day of adventure here, but the atmosphere is a unique experience.
