The decorations, tables, and beignets are the same. Only this location takes cards and has AC!!! Many thanks to the employees who rescued my purse and contents when I left it sitting under the table. Everything was intact. Cant say that about many other establishments. Thank you for a great experience and the yummy carb coma!!!! :)

No visit to New Orleans is complete without a visit to Cafe DuMonde. If you can't make it to the French Quarter, this location in Metairie is a great alternative. The Cafe Aulait and Beignets are delicious and there is ample seating inside and out. Business was brisk at 9 a.m. but service was good and the beignets were scrumptious... More

My husband, son and I visited here for breakfast. We went before 9am so it was not crowded. The restaurant is large and inviting. The beignets were covered in powdered sugar and were so delicious. I would highly recommend. There are three beignets in an order. Plan for at least 2-3 per person.

We got our order to go and sat in park across the street. Beignets good, cafe au lait great. Long line to wait for to go orders. Longer wait if you wanted to be seated in cafe

Less crowded and much faster service than the one in the French Quarter. The only down side is that sitting outside, the wind blows the powdered sugar all over everyone's cloths.

This place has the best beignets around. We drive 10 hrs to visit family in the area and always have to stop by. Always a line to place your order, but they are always fresh. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Absolutely we will be back. Love it, love it, love it.

While visiting the area we knew that we would have to stop here. When we arrived at around 9 p.m. on a Saturday there were several people in front of us, but the line moved quickly and we were able to get our beignet fix. SO YUMMY!

I prefer to go to this location, it is not as busy as the one in the french quarters. The food and the coffee are excellent. They also have souviners available to purchase.

Several people recommended this place to my friends and I. They said "It's a must". On our day of departure we decided to hit up the spot. Our driver told us to visit this one in contrast to the one in downtown because the lines are shorter. When we got to Café Du Monde, there was a pretty long line,... More
