So we went here for beignets. I figured I could eat brunch here but it really only does beignets, drinks, and souvenirs. Long line. The beignets at cafe beignet looked a lot fluffier and they served other things. And they were a lot less busy. But if you are there for the experience it is not bad.

We tried their cafe au lait and beignets while shopping at Lakeside Mall. The service was so so but otherwise, it was fine. I think it has lost some of its charm now that there are outlets in many different places instead of the original one in the french market area of New Orleans.

Wherever you are in Louisiana a visit to Cafe du Monde is a MUST! There are a total of 8 in the metro NOLA area and truly you've got to have a coffee (coffee is served Black or Au Lait) and an amazing beignet. Be sure to have cash - they do not accept credit cards, The prices are reasonable for such awesome treats! This location is not scenic, but your visit will be quick - the location at the Esplanade is super scenic!

Such a fun experience to go here downtown New Orleans. Best beignets and a fun experience. Could do without the bitter coffee, but would definitely come here again.

You may be skeptical and even wincing at the line outside of café Du monde... Don’t be! The line goes very fast and the service is wonderful. It is of course a limited menu of the famous beignets and cafe olés it is however a must see and experience place in New Orleans. The open air market right on the water is wonderful and you’re right by all the fun places to visit.
