Great snack when visiting the lakeside shopping center area. Gives you a small taste and smells of the early years in the quarter.

Everything about this delighted us....from the perfect warm beignets, to the old-school personable service, to the vintage building, to the park outside with trees draped in Spanish Moss. Dont miss this classic venue for warm hospitality, New Orleans style.

Never tire of coffee and beignets! Loving them for almost 70 years. I would recommend them when you come to New Orleans-with plenty of powdered sugar!

My two grandchildren love this place. Great beignets and coffee. Make sure you have cash as they do not take credit cards. They do not sell full service breakfast.

Old school, piping hot, traditional beignets. Nothing fancy. Fried dough. Powdered sugar. Chicory coffee.
