We stopped here on our last day in Houston and absolutely loved it. You order at the counter and then they bring your food out to you. The lovely lady that took our order checked on us multiple times during our visit. Of course we had the beignets, they were delicious. we also ordered a shrimp po boy, gumbo, mac... More

This restaurant has moved a couple of times. The first location was on Westheimer inside the loop. That was closed and they moved to another Westheimer location out side the loop. NOW, they are at 5885 San Felipe St. This is in the HEB shopping center at the intersection of San Felipe and Fountain View and is their only location.... More

Good chicken and sausage gumbo. A cup is all you need. The muffelata was OK. I don't recall it being a hot sandwich in New Orleans. The menu has lots of Crescent City favorites. Did not try the namesake beignets. Thought the prices were a touch high.

This is a family friendly cafe with food and beignets. We stopped in for a taste of beignets like we had in New Orleans. We bought 12 beignet strips for $4.25 and sat on the front patio for a few minutes, while I sipped on a cafe latte. There were a lot of staff and the ordering process was fast... More

I'm sure this place is wonderful but it is not at the address listed here, and the phone listed is not correct either. Check their website.

What a treat to have these beignets and chickory coffee in Houston just like Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans. A little tricky to find it is in a strip shopping center on Westheimer next to a mattress store. You can also get red beans and rice, gumbo, etc, Enjoy!

I was born and raised in New Orleans, so I know the original Cafe Du Monde is hard to compete with....until I went to visit Crescent City Beignets!!!! I absolutely love the beignets here and would come her to eat just that!! The staff is awesome and the shrimp poboys are amazing!! I would definitely be back!!

This small cafe in a tired strip center inside the loop along Houston's Westheimer Blvd was a long ways from New Orleans' famous Cafe DuMond both literally and figuratively, but once you bite into Crescent City's mouth-watering, hot, crisp beignets covered with a thick layer of confectionery sugar, you might find it is worth putting up with a dirty cafe...

I continue to return to Crescent City Beignets because I love the Cafe au Lait. Not to mention the freshest beignets that melt in your mouth! And all the Cajun menu items like gumbo and red beans and rice are delicious. The service is a totally different matter. The staff are cold and unfriendly. No eye contact or personal contact....
