Honestly, the beignets were marginally better than I made at home using the “Cafe Du Monde” box kit I bought at Publix and the chicory coffee was just ok. I think the worst part of the experience for me was the large number of waiters...More

Beignets were awesome and as expected a great ending to our culinary escapade. Glad we didn’t have to have much contact with our female waitress-she couldn’t crack a smile even if you had a crowbar.

I have been to New Orleans a few times because my daughter and son n law lives here but when in town there has been so many things to do so this time we had beigenets so yummy and loaded with powered sugar

cafe du monde is a great place to eat breakfast. Especially if you only wants beneins. Also this location ONLY accepts CASH. Make sure you bring plenty.

When visiting New Orleans going by cafe du Monde is a must. Was here about 15 years ago and it was better than I remembered. Tonight is our last night and I think we will return for one last visit.

Worth having once on your trip. The wait can be ridiculous so plan accordingly. Chicory coffee is icky.

Very busy but worth the wait. Wish we could see the Mississippi River adjacent to this place! Large concrete wall instead.

and not really “real beignets”, more like funnel cakes than anything. It’s still delicious and probably the best value on breakfast in the area. Also you have to specify black coffee or they will bring you café au lait

This is a must-do for any visitor. The chicory coffee may not taste the best, but it is something you get to accompany your beignets. The too large pile of powdered sugar is a given - and guaranteed to get all over your pants. People...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
