We had read about these pastry and were excited to try them, what a treat! We each were served 3 coated with powdered sugar. Riding the street car to get to walking distance was a great adventure. People were friendly.

Delicious beignets and coffee. Always busy but the staff handles it well. Bonus is the nearby street musicians to add to the ambiance.

If you are going to try Beignets you should here. They were made while were waited. Great taste ... be careful with that first bite they are hot.

Many locals feel nothing beats cafe du mode-but we felt that New Orleans Famous Beignets earned their tittle. The pastries were lighter and more fluffy with a fresh flavor. The bar tender was friendly helpful and knowledgeable. This will be our new go-to place for...More

Best place for late night sweet after a night of drinking. Coffee to sober up, fun outside beignet eating. A must on your trip.

Nice, convenient place next to N.O. Police Station to pick up a quick snack & coffee. Less crowded than the "other beignet" restaurant and was easy to find a place to sit outside.

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
