We arrived in Kenner in the evening, and were delighted to see a cafe du Monde across from our hotel. The fresh hot powdered beignets were a perfect bedtime treat . The service was fast and friendly. The drive through was very convenient.

Every visit to our family in the area means a trip to Cafe du Monde in Kenner. We get off the plane and drive right in over. Grandchildren get dusted with powdered sugar and nobody worries about their getting messy. There are lots of napkins....More

Although this location is just outside of New Orleans, you still get the Bourbon St feel when you walk through the doors. There is lots of seating and the service is good. Beignets, the coffee and chocolate are delicious! It’s a great meeting place to...More

Best Beignets known to man, warmy, sugary goodness. Put some in yo’ mouth! You cannot miss this is in NOLA, or in the U.S. They are just so good! The Coffee and Hot Chocolate is excellent too, especially the Hot Chocolate!
