Excellent! What else do you expect? The staff was not friendly though. They acted like they were "too good". Will go back regardless.

It’s crowded and sticky, but the beignets are great, can’t miss this place. I loved the cafe Au Lait.

It’s one of those things you need to do while in NOLA. Locals do eat the beignets late at night when they are drunk, not as tourists do thru the day.

Definitely a must when visiting New Orleans! Worth the wait! If you like cold coffees the frozen cafe au lait is delicious! Beignets are always hot and fresh! Quick service! They also have a to go window if you want your food on the go.

You must visit here when in New Orleans. You gotta know the local's secret to waiting in line forever. Oder a coffee and some Beignets. Afterwards, take a stroll over to the Mississippi River. It's super crowded and touristy but a must do.

A New Orleans staple. I always saw it on tv and had to see it for myself. Cool spot to relax that keeps it simple but they do a great job.

Now, beignets (square freshly fried french doughnuts) are available many places in New Orleans, but the experience of having them with a cup of cafe' au lait under the awning is really why you should go to Cafe' Du Monde. And then by all means,...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
