Only coffee and beignets on the menu and that's all you need. Seriously the best. We visited 4 times in 2 days. They are just that good!

Drive away from the crazy tourist lights and come out here to have some beignets! We had dinner at Harbor Seafood and dessert here! Perfect evening. We did also go to the Cafe du Monde on Decatur St and I don't know if it's because...More

Every visit to our family in the area means a trip to Cafe du Monde in Kenner. We get off the plane and drive right in over. Grandchildren get dusted with powdered sugar and nobody worries about their getting messy. There are lots of napkins....More

Best Beignets known to man, warmy, sugary goodness. Put some in yo’ mouth! You cannot miss this is in NOLA, or in the U.S. They are just so good! The Coffee and Hot Chocolate is excellent too, especially the Hot Chocolate!

Sugar covered fried dough and coffee. That’s what this iconic cafe is built upon. This is a prime example of the “do one thing well” business plan. The beignets are perfect. They are warm, light, sweet and addictive. It’s hard to eat one. We tried...More

It’s hard to sit and relax with the business of the place but the beignet were lovely. However, there are other places with great beignet without the lone queues.

Beignets. That’s it. Sweet little fried pieces of dough. Covered in powdered sugar. How hard can it be to make these? Well, once you try them at different places you’ll see what I mean. You’ll also see that the fresh hot crispy s here are...More
