Neighbourhood: French Quarter
Description: Café Beignet is known for their made-to-order Beignets, a puffy pillow of fried dough dusted with powdered sugar, and café au lait. But there is so much more! Coffees both hot and cold range from simple to flavored, a pastry counter is filled with sweet delights, and hot foods for both breakfast, lunch, dinner and sandwiches can be ordered at the counter. A sister establishment is a courtyard on Bourbon Street with live music all day.

We had a large party of 10 and we had to work to get enough places to sit and eat breakfast. They are not set up for large parties.
That being said the Beignets were great and the breakfasts were good as well.

We went at breakfast time and I would suggest going at off times to avoid waiting for the 30 to 40 minutes we had to even get to order.

I love this place, based on the courtyard alone. I could sit there all day, chatting and people watching. The food was ok (ok is being a little generous), coffee was good. They had a little yard kitty too.

Strangely we did not find many coffee shops in New Orleans. This one has a nice garden area and the coffee and cakes are good.

We are simply grateful that you found us! Please come visit the same or one of our other shops in the Quarter. We have three very different atmospheres to offer.

You must get at least one order ( there are three ) as well as a chocolate milk to be able to get the proper effect. Do not wear black unless you want to show off the powdered sugar you will drop off the beignets

Your point about the black clothing is so Good! To really enjoy the beignets you need to dig in and that spreads the sugary goodness everywhere!
