I went there to pick up some beignets - so glad I did. Much better than the other well known place and I did not have to go into the French Quarter to get them!

Had beignets and coffee. Beignets were light and fresh. Served without powdered sugar. That was on the table to do yourself. Hot and crunchy and wonderful. Coffe at lait was delicious too. Could do this every morning.

Located in a strip mall, so it looks a little divey going in. Inside is charming--looks like a 1940s? 1950s? classic cafe. Beignets were amazing. Chicory coffee was also good. Loved this stop! I'd like to return sometime to try some of the lunch items.

Beignets best in the city- nice and crisp- Both locations- Metairie and City Park, if you like thin and crisp order the "slits". City Park location has great atmosphere

The beignets here are served plain. There is powdered sugar on the table. They were very good, but I prefer them already powdered when they come to the table. The restaurant was not crowded, and the beignets were fresh. Great local spot.

The beignets are so good and the staff is very friendly. This location is great if you want to avoid the crowds in the French Quarter location.

Having always eaten beignets from Cafe du Monde, which we ate for dessert after lunch, we went to Morning Call for our dinner dessert that same day. This place has nostalgic decor & is opened 24 hours. The beignets were lighter than Cafe de Monde's....More

Morning call is the place for your beignet "fix" if you wish to avoid the press of the masses at Jackson Square.It's a petite quiet spot. Far more locals that tourists .The waitstaff are attentive, not rushed. And they are open around the clock!

I have been coming here since I was a little kid. It is nostalgic, and the quality never waivers. Coffee and beignets. The beignets are always crisp on the outside, hot out of the fryer, with the powdered sugar. Yummy! I took my aunt, and...More

Coffee is served without sugar. Sweetener or sugar is offered. The beignets at Morning Call are served without sugar and you add your own powdered sugar at the table. At Cafe du Monde in the French Quarter, the powdered... More
