Seriously this is a cafe with crap decor full of believers... For what? A doughnut? Suggest you sneak around to Cafe Beignet in Royal it is quiet, classy and easy to get a table. Avoid the tourist trap!!!

It's just coffee and beignets, but it has to be on your list when you visit the French Quarter. We visited on a really cold day, and we were thankful for the enclosed courtyard with overhead heaters. I was pleasantly surprised that they had servers...More

We happened to visit New Orleans on the coldest day’s in thirty years. The cafe had the curtains down to block the wind, the place was busy not jumping. The beignets Were fantastic hot sweet and wow.

Very fun because of uniqueness. Only coffee and the beignettes. Very reasonable, given the tourist nature. Lines move quickly and service is good. Know that there is a gift shop right across the street with souvenirs from this place.

Trying Beignets at Cafe Du Monde has been on my bucket list for ages, and it was finally achieved! The line at the Cafe was quicker than expected, and we were seated outdoors. The staff was obviously rushing orders for most customers which limited the...More

Great for breakfast or after a late supper, or anytime. Being open 24 hours takes care of your sugartooth.

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
