This was a fun stop for breakfast on the way to the beach.... Doesn't get better than this! I have had lighter beignets but these are very good!

I was so excited to see a beignet place because my husband has never had a real one fresh. To the point--Awesome beignets rude owner!

I'm on vacation. Decided that I wanted beignets. They open at 6:30am today. I arrived at 6:35 am. I'm the only one in store. Guy got up from his chair. He talked to me for a min or two while I decided how many I needed. He stepped into kitchen, prepared my food (beignets were hot) and I paid and... More

Cafe Beignet has a very simple menu but does it well! Beignets are made as ordered so always fresh and piping hot. A carry out order is always a must for our weekend house guests!

We go here every year on vacation and today was no exception. However today at 11:08 am when we walked in we were told that they "were fixing to close" and that we could sit but had to hurry. They were rudely yelling at each customer after we walked in "we're closing so takeout only". One lady came back in... More

The beignets were made to orders and delicious! The filled and unfilled were great but my preference is unfilled with strawberry sauce.

Assume they are closing an hour before the time listed. I don't know if this is because they sell out or another reason, but I took off a star because they kicked everyone out at least 45 minutes before the listed closing time. The beignets were very good though.

I stopped in to get an order to go. I went in at 11:40 AM; 20 minutes before closing. I was "greeted" by a young lady bellowing "we're only doing to go orders". That was fine, that's what I wanted. I got a bad feeling that they wanted to close early. The man back in the kitchen angrily yelled that... More

With carry out you can enjoy the company of friends. The beignets are excellent the cook a little gruff. And at $9 plus for 6 it's a little pricey. So it's every few weeks for us.

Great beignets; terrific waitress; the guy behind the counter?? Several of us met for beignets and coffee. We are not snowbirds, some of us are local residents and were nine paying customers. We are not a loud group and well-behaved. We wanted to join tables and sit together and the person in charge (not the waitress) made us feel unwelcome... More
