We go here every year on vacation and today was no exception. However today at 11:08 am when we walked in we were told that they "were fixing to close" and that we could sit but had to hurry. They were rudely yelling at each customer after we walked in "we're closing so takeout only". One lady came back in... More

The beignets were made to orders and delicious! The filled and unfilled were great but my preference is unfilled with strawberry sauce.

Assume they are closing an hour before the time listed. I don't know if this is because they sell out or another reason, but I took off a star because they kicked everyone out at least 45 minutes before the listed closing time. The beignets were very good though.

I stopped in to get an order to go. I went in at 11:40 AM; 20 minutes before closing. I was "greeted" by a young lady bellowing "we're only doing to go orders". That was fine, that's what I wanted. I got a bad feeling that they wanted to close early. The man back in the kitchen angrily yelled that... More

With carry out you can enjoy the company of friends. The beignets are excellent the cook a little gruff. And at $9 plus for 6 it's a little pricey. So it's every few weeks for us.

Great beignets; terrific waitress; the guy behind the counter?? Several of us met for beignets and coffee. We are not snowbirds, some of us are local residents and were nine paying customers. We are not a loud group and well-behaved. We wanted to join tables and sit together and the person in charge (not the waitress) made us feel unwelcome... More

I've reviewed this café before but they hit a new low. In the last two years they started charging for a cup of water. 27cents to be exact, including tax. I know because 2 years ago I worked for them and water was free. This Spring a gentleman walked in carrying his small dog and asked for a cup of... More

We stopped here on the way out of town to get beignets for the drive home and this place did not disappoint. Small place, but food was great!

Great place for a Treat after your morning walk or anytime of the day for that matter. We have been coming South in the Winter for sum time now and always look forward to our visits to the Cafe Beignets of Alabama.

We hit this place every snowbird season, but this year once was enough. The beignet are great, they match, or exceed Cafe du Monde in NOLA, but there has been a change in the attitude of the help. Show up there after 11:00 and they let you know they are out the door by noon, and that means they're going... More
