We stopped in here mid morning during the week. There was a wait for seating but take out window was short. Our group got 10 bags of beignets and there wasn't any leftover. There is a good vibe about this area and hoping to return again soon.

Café Du Monde is THE best place for beignets...anywhere. Nestled on the banks of the Mississippi river; it is a great place for breakfast or just to sit and relax. It's across the street from the St. Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square where horse drawn carriages shuttle people throughout the French Quarter and adjacent to historic Jax Brewery. Beignets are...

New Orleans to the core. Maybe the simplest approach of any spot in the city. It's coffee, chicory style, and bignets in an historically rustic in-town setting. That it abandons any effort towards being classy is unquestionably the key to its universal charm. Hard to imagine it not still being there 100 years from now doing exactly the same thing... More

The satellite locations for Cafe du Monde allow you to enjoy Beignets without the long wait time you experience downtown. You give up some of the ambiance but on this day we walked right in and were second in line, one hour later while downtown the wait was over an hour long to get in there....for the exact same thing....

I had an order of beignets with a cup of cafe au lait. SO GOOD ! ! My only wish is they would put the powdered sugar on the table to let me overindulge in it. They do put plenty on already for you. Putting it on myself just brings me back to my childhood.

If you have been there, done that in the French Quarter, and want your beignets and coffee fix without the hassle, this is a great option!! We usually go inside for a nice, relaxing treat.

A smaller version of its French Quarter namesake, this location is on Williams Boulevard a few blocks north of I-10. I often stop here for coffee and beignets before or after a trip to the New Orleans airport. I have learned to eat inside, because service at the drive through can be an aggravating experience. On one occasion I had... More

I was so excited to be able to try some beignets and my oh my were they delicious! I highly recommend checking this place out. I would go to one that isn't on the board walk. If you do go to one on the boardwalk, be prepared to wait for a very long time.

When in NOLA, I try to stop by for my mid afternoon snack. Most time it is packed and a long line. I try to order from pick up counter. Fortunately my last visit, there were plenty of open tables. I loved the cafe au lait and beignets. It is my guilty pleasure because of the fried carbs and excessive... More
