Great sweets and coffee! Great service. Was here 15 years ago and just as I remembered. Have your cash ready for those great pillows of sugar and dough with a great cup of joe.

Went because its historic, but crowded even off time of day/week. Beignets were ok, but really nothing that special. Neat to go and say been, and at least the beignets are reasonably priced: 3 for $3, but cash only. They do have a to go...More

The service was fast. You have have to tey them, eat them hot. Be prepared to get powered sugar on you, its part of the experience

This place is located in the Riverwalk Outlet Mall. The iced coffee is great with the snacks. The powder can get messy but it's worth it.

Cafe du Monde retains its outstanding position as one of the must do’s while in New Orleans. The beignets are still the best. The coffee is great and the service and ambiance are top notch!

I had to stay in line for a few minutes, but it did not take more than 20 minutes to enter. It was my first time trying the beignets, now I love them.

Be prepared to wait for a seat, we were lucky my husband notice it wasn’t a long wait. So while my friend and I was in the store shopping he grabbed a table for us.

This is a really cute cafe. I love it that it's by the river and best other local tourist locations. The baked goods was delicious. However the only thing that was confusing was how customers were served. Otherwise, it was good service.

This was my daughters first trip to NOLA so we had to go to Cafe du Monde. Monday was delightful, NO WAIT! Such a different experience from the packed weekends. Service was on par, friendly, fast and accurate. Don’t forget it is CASH ONLY!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
