“Nice diversion”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

In spite of it's fame, I would consider this a convenient diversion but not a destination. The beignets piled with powdered sugar are delicious with a cup of coffee ( coffee is OK not great). It is a great opportunity to take a break in the covered patio and watch the scenic street scene. We had no problem mid-day seating ourselves and being served. Conveniently located near the French Market and away from the Bourbon St. bar scene.

“The Beignets Are As Good As Ever”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Café Du Monde has long been famous for its Beignets. However, some places rest on their laurels and diminish in quality over time (such as Emeril's). Not the case with Café Du Monde. It's still as good as ever.

“Quick and easy”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Love this location. It is quicker and easier to get your Beignets here. And it is also inside so there is air conditioning. A cool break from the heat and humidity.

“Watch New Orleans wake up”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

It's true. The line snakes round the block and you will wait. Unless of course you get there at 7am. And why wouldn't you? The landmark cafe is open 24/7, and the beignets are the perfect breakfast. Grab a seat along the street and watch the city come to life, as shops open and crowd begin to gather. This may be the biggest culinary attraction in New Orleans; but don't think of it as a tourist trap. It isn't. It's a historical gem.
