Sorry to see this place close in Metairie. They serve the best beignets and it was 24/7. Thank goodness their city park place remains open.

While Jimmy Buffett may describe beignets as ‘too much sugar and dough,’ there’s no better treat for this Native Louisiana boy. And I prefer Morning Call as my favorite stop outside the French Quarter. My only beef is they sometimes hold both their fried delights...More

They have perfect beignets and very good red beans and rice. They service was quick and the servers were nice. I would stop by here everyday!

First time to come here and the cafe de lait was terrific and beignets were perfect. Very old school, cool atmosphere. We went early in the morning so wasn’t busy at all! If we are ever back in New Orleans, it will be a staple!

When I grew up in Metairie, especially after I was 16 and driving around by myself, and then while I was in college, too, this was definitely a place to get some good beignets anytime. But I think over time I've gotten a bit more...More

This is one of two authentic New Orleans coffee shops that serve the beignets I grew up eating. Don’t expect many selections. Go there if you want a great combo of coffee and beignets. You can’t visit with that experience.
