I was told to visit the famous beignets so when I got there the queue was down the street. When I got inside the shop I saw what looked like odd looking donutes with icing sugar on top. I didnt try them as they looked...More

We had beignets two mornings of our NO visit. The food and service are great and the atmosphere is special, complete with local entertainment.

Only open till 2 so don't wait for a late night snack at this location. The more famous spot for beignets is just down the block but I still think this place has the best beignets in town. The coffee isn't the best:(

The line was long but we had heard you must try the Beignets while in NOLA. They were freshly made and absolutely delish; very messy but the powdered sugar is what makes it special. Great snack in between our touristy adventures!

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
