I was so excited to be able to try some beignets and my oh my were they delicious! I highly recommend checking this place out. I would go to one that isn't on the board walk. If you do go to one on the boardwalk, be prepared to wait for a very long time.

When in NOLA, I try to stop by for my mid afternoon snack. Most time it is packed and a long line. I try to order from pick up counter. Fortunately my last visit, there were plenty of open tables. I loved the cafe au lait and beignets. It is my guilty pleasure because of the fried carbs and excessive... More

This is a must see and do during any visit to New Orleans! There is nothing like sitting outside at any one of Ce du Monde's locations sipping a true .New Orleans original Cafe Au Lait and getting some of the copious amount of powdered sugar applied to that most decadent of treats; bengiet!!! Nothing like it anywhere!!!

I thought the beignets were flavorless. The dump of powdered sugar didn't change that. I visited because of the hype around town. Maybe I should have ordered a hot drink to go with it.

This is a new location near the airport. I was home for a visit and didn't want to drive downtown to get a beignet fix. Very clean and very fast service. Food and beignets were FANTASTIC and hit the spot.

I tried their famous Beignet here. Quite tasty and basically it is nothing more than a palm size funnel cake. I should have tried it with a small cup of coffee.

I didn't go to the downtown New Orleans location, I went to the one that was closer to my hotel. Mardi Gras parades are going on strong and I didn't want to fight traffic to get there. It's a cute little (well, quite large) cafe and the staff was super friendly. I ordered the customer favorite according to the associate... More

Cafe du monde is a must anytime we come to New Orleans. The lines will be long, but the wait is well worth it.

The waiting lines are almost always long but move steady . There is only one thing to oder and there will be no question what it is when you are seated . If you leave without powdered sugar down the front of you I would be surprised . enjoy !
