Piping hot beignets. Tasty cafe au lait. Quick & easy breakfast before hitting the road for the return trip to San Antonio. Ordered a hot chocolate & mini-muffulettas for the drive. Shoulda stopped with the breakfast.

We love the beignets and cafe au lait. The beignets are always hot and fresh. Love the old time feel when you walk in and sit at the counter. We have to stop here for beignets when in New Orleans.

I've never tried Cafe Beignet yet but I personally think Morning call has better than Cafe du Monde. They also have a beautiful interior if you go to the one in City Park.

This place is reminiscent of the old days! The staff is courteous and helpful and they let you eat in peace! Good hot chocolate and some of the best beignets I've had. Simple to order and eat. I loved it here.

Nothing fancy, just a great cup of local coffee and beignets from a historic place, a part of history from the area

Best coffee in the city and the beignets were light and fluffy. Always a fun place to go By yourself, with family or friends.

We had coffee and beignets and both were served hot with lots of powdered sugar. The beignets were served in brown bag. Water was served with the coffee as part of the order. Quick courteous service.

Service was fast as usual. Got hit with my chocolate milk I ordered though. Think the waitress was moving a little too fast. Beignets were good but not hot which was disappointing.

My dad visited Morning Call every morning for over 20 years ... eventually, my husband joined him for morning beignets and coffee right across from Lakeside Shopping Center. You can't beat the location and the quality -- always looked forward to a New Orleans breakfast!
