Service was friendly enough, if somewhat slow. But the problem wasn't the service, it was the coffee. Horrendous. The taste had nothing to do with any European flavour, let alone French.

My wife and I went on the way out of New Orleans and managed to get food and souvenirs within 20 minutes. Food was prepared quick and was same as the one down on Decatur Street. Pros: Less crowded Little to no waiting in line Takes debit/credit cards Same food/beverages Cons: Less atmosphere Not as convenient

I'm ashamed to say but I had never had a Beignet before I tried out this place and now I will be coming back for more. They were very hot and delicious! The service was great and this is a good place to grab and go if you are in a hurry.

I'm a local from Mid-City and grew up in the quarter. I hate the lines at the quarter location and so this is a sort of trade off location. Same menu as on Decatur, but the atmosphere isn't good to me. I'm sure it was created to give a nice, old N'Awlins feel with the photos and the design inside,... More

We are from Houston on business in New Orleans so we knew we had to eat some beignets. The only reason I am giving this place a 4 instead of a 5 star is that when we first walked in, the smell was not inviting at all. We expected to smell both the beignets and the coffee but it smelled... More

Very busy, but there is an available drive through. Beignets were very hot and delicious. The Cafe Au Lait is so good. Worth a stop!

I love this place. A must for any NO visit. There is always a bit of live music as well as a very tasty treat for breakfast or a snack.

This spot is more spacious, less crowded and just as good! I'm not a fan of crowded spaces, so this was ideal for me. Of course, the beignets were DELICIOUS!! We went on a Sunday around the time when they first opened. It was right by our hotel. Perfection.
