The experience coming here is a New Orleans ritual that’s a must.
The beneits are great and hot. The outdoor cafe is nice. Somewhat dirty surroundings and powdered sugar everywhere on the floor. It’s part of the experience. It just felt unclean everywhere. Frankly, I like Cafe Beneit better.

I've read some of the reviews and wasn't sure what I was in for. Long story short - your getting beignets, which is like a hunk of funnel cake, and coffee. There isn't much else. But your getting this for a fairly reasonable cost.

There is often a helluva line. Get there early and the line isn't so bad - but there will be a line. There is also a takeout line. Both lines move at the same pace, which isn't bad but they can be long.

If you are here, you are coming for the history. This place has been around forever. You finally get your seat, get your sugar covered fried bread, and just sense the energy of the place. Listen to the crowd pass by. Smell the fried sugar in the air. Feel the history of the place. If you can't appreciate that, you don't need to be there! Definitely recommend!

As advertised with a cup chicory coffee this the best dessert you will have all day. Totally worth making the trip.
Enjoy!

Went with the family and we found the beignets to be just okay. It's also way overcrowded and dirty.

Top tip - don’t stand in line just go around the back and sit at an uncleared or cleared table

There are signs all over that say seat yourself but tourists often don’t and wait in In a long line to be seated!
