The beignets are perfect, as is the coffee.

Decent service given the size of the crowd.

A traditional “go to” place. Cheap.

BTW. Don't wear dark colors as the powdered sugar goes everywhere.

We enjoyed the beignets and coffee. But the little known secrets....don’t wait in the self order line. Walk a few more steps down to he sit down location. They will take your order at the table.

A trip to NOLA is not complete without a stop at Cafe Du Monde. When we first arrived, we headed directly to Cafe Du Monde and were not disappointed. Seriously, who can be disappointed with hot beignets and coffee?! We did have to wait in a pretty sizable line which snakes around the building almost all day long. If you're not into lines? No problem, I discovered during our recent visit that no one in NOLA wakes up before 8am apparently. So if you're an early bird head to Cafe Du Monde early and enjoy beignets at the time when the rest of the world actually thinks "it's time to make the donuts!"

We went to Cafe Du Monde three times during our week long vacation. Twice in the take out line and once seated. Don’t let the lines intimidate you, it moves fast...especially the to go line.

Timing is everything here and at night is better when the cruise ships leave so you avoid the long lines. You have to go here so make it easy on yourself and choose a time wisely or wait in line. The Beignets are worth it, but standing in line can be frustrating so if it is too long come back later or spend the time.
