Maple Bacon Beignets... you can't go wrong. A must go to. Great service, great food, fun atmosphere, allow dogs on patio area, have coffee and flavored water in front for you while you wait. Get there early, they are busy.

Hi, Unfortunately they don't take breakfast reservations. The wait can be up to 30 minutes, depending on what time you get to the restaurant. They have a patio that allows dogs.
