OMG! So tasty! Beignets were amazing and the service was fantastic. This was such a quaint little place and we really enjoyed our experience here. A must visit in Frankenmuth!

Outside of New Orleans, they have the best beignets! The coffee is pretty good too! Look for coupons throughout the mall area!

It was a cold, windy, and blustery morning as we walked into Norlins looking for Beignets. We found them, freshly baked and powdered awaiting to warm us from within with a burst of chewy, sweet, and fried goodness. Dang, these were good. We will definitely...be stopping by again when in Frankenmuth.More

These were just as delicious as the ones I had in New Orleans in March at Cafe Du Monde! They were shaped like hearts which made them extra awesome and they were COATED in powder sugar which was my favorite part!

The beignets were amazing. Perfect to go with their hot chocolate and walk around looking at all the Christmas lights. Fast service as well! Will be back :)

We split a 6 pack 3 ways with a couple cups of dipping sauce. They drop the hot beignets into the bag with a huge amount of powdered sugar. They are really good warm. A few years back, I took a few home and they...do not reheat well, so eat them warm or eat them later cold.More

Omg! The beignets are amazing! They cook them to order so you get them while they are still warm! They also have raspberry sauce and princess frosting is amazing!

The beignets were fine although covered in way too much powdered sugar. I was grossed out that the same person touching money was using her hands to pick up the beignets and put them in the fryer.

Fantastic beignets and delicious coffee. The beignets are fried while you wait and together with a hot coffee is a little piece of heaven. Great late afternoon break or a tasty desert.

My husband and I shared a 3 piece beignet. I have been in New Orleans and have eaten at the famous Cafe Du Monde. The ones served at Norlins are heart shaped and loaded with powered sugar. We choose to have the chocolate dipping sauce....They are way more dense and not puffy like the ones I had in New Orleans. It was a nice snackMore
