This is one of my favorite places in the whole world. When I was there I went every morning and got an order of three. I split it with my mother and just enjoyed sitting and talking while eating a piece if heaven. Since we...More

This is a typical tourist place in New Orleans. The lines are long and there are people everywhere. If you have the beignets take away you have to pay in cash. The beignets are tasty.

Great beignets and cafe au lait. Great atmosphere had music playing. Wish we could have seen more in the French quarter but it was a humid hot day.

I had always heard about Café Du Monde and honestly didn't believe it would live up to the hype, boy was I wrong. The coffee and beniegts were hot and fresh. It was extremely busy and service was a little slow but very friendly.

I had the frozen Cafe au Lait and my husband had the hot coffee with cream to accompany our fresh and hot beignets. They were everything and worth the walk! The menu is short and sweet and there is plenty of seating. I love that...More

We always manage to stop at Café Du Monde for their great Beignets and Chicory Coffee. As usual, the place was very crowded and we had to "shark" for a table. Our waitress was unusually competent. The beignets were as good as we remembered them,...More

It was crazy, crowded, busy, but fortunately we did not have to wait too long for a waiter. The beignets are fried choux pastry heavily dusted with confectioner's sugar. It was good and the flavored coffee was fine, and I was happy to have tasted...More

I started going here in the 70's during college. I've returned numerous times over the decades. I don't know if the beignets have actually gone downhill, or if other establishments have surpassed their quality. But the beignets were hard and crunchy around the edges and...More

Always a must when in New Orleans!! Such a treat to enjoy a strong coffee (or soda) and the best powdered sugar beignets ever!

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

I don't think you will have an issue Mon-Thurs. If you go on the weekend, I suggest going early in the morning (before 10am) or really late at night (after 10pm). Even more true if there are big events going on (Mardi Gras... More
