I actually liked this better than Cafe Du Monde aside from the summer flies buzzing around (they mostly just hung out on the mirror and never actually got into or onto the food). The set-up is a lot less cramped, the staff is way nicer,...More

No matter what time of day you must stop by and have these Beignets with Hot Coffee, iced coffee, or frozen coffee! A must-do in New Orleans.

This is a famous pastry in New Orleans. And this restaurant is famous for them. I did have these beignets at other places and found them not as good as New Orleans Famous Beignets. These really are the best.

These beignets are so light and flaky!! I grew up eating beignets but not like this!!! We were at the French Quarter Fest and just wanted some beignets, instead of walking to the popular place we decided to stop here, we were not disappointed!!!

Beignets and cafe au lait in a crowded open-sided building across from Jackson Square. Get there early if you go.

Well, it was worth the travel to try these although you have to eat them fast because they do not taste that good when they are cold. Very sweet and basically just full of sugar powder. I bought a box to take home and tried...More

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
