Best local beignets and cafe' au lait in town! Better than the competition (but no drive through). Loud, but worth it if you do not wear a hearing aid. Go to the one behind Lakeside Shoppong Center -- the one with the original furniture from...More

When I grew up in Metairie, especially after I was 16 and driving around by myself, and then while I was in college, too, this was definitely a place to get some good beignets anytime. But I think over time I've gotten a bit more...More

This is one of two authentic New Orleans coffee shops that serve the beignets I grew up eating. Don’t expect many selections. Go there if you want a great combo of coffee and beignets. You can’t visit with that experience.

This was one of the stops during a bus tour we took. Our waiter was super fast & friendly and our food was really good, but I was really disappointed in the cafe au lait and the beignets.

What is a trip to New Orleans without a stop for coffee and beignets. Well you can go to that other place in the French Quarter and wait in line, or you can find the nearest Morning Call and enjoy the company of the staff...More

Had beignets and chicory coffee. Neat old place. Loved the antique coffee pots and watching them make the dough. It was fun and good. Would recommend going and will go back again.

Heard this place was the locals favorite for Beignets and coffee. Sadly our visit this morning was not as expected. Our server was not very attentive. Another server had to tell him to bring our check. Next visit will try the famous location

Classic New Orleans treat for beignets- 3 per order you pile on the powered sugar. It has been in the New Orleans area for 50 plus years. It moved from the French quarter years ago. In addition to beignets they have traditional New Orleans Coffee...More

Coffee is served without sugar. Sweetener or sugar is offered. The beignets at Morning Call are served without sugar and you add your own powdered sugar at the table. At Cafe du Monde in the French Quarter, the powdered... More
