Excellent coffee and beignets. Good quick service. Enjoy breakfast with locals - not tourists. Note: cash only

I have been to Morning Call in Metairie many, many times and have always had great beignets and coffee. The location is great for a treat after shopping or a Mardi Gras parade. Just once, I had beignets that were like rubber. I complained about it and received a fresh order that wasn't much better. Hopefully, it was just a... More

I had never had a Beignet and heard this was the place to go in the morning. It has been open since 1870, before Starbucks. You can only get Coffee and Beignets in the morning easy choice. Very good!

The best Beignets nets ever-- the most disgusting restroom for a restaurant ever. I go there ever time i am in New Orleans --just do not use their restroom

The original beignets - without the travel into downtown. Been coming here for years for a quick sugar fix.

So much better than its competitor. If you want a real NO experience, this is the place. Service is always superb. We go to the City Park one for music and ambiance.

Darn three try's and I was out. I love this place normally but today I tried three times for traditional au lait and each time the coffee tasted sour. The server said the milk sometimes curdles because it is so hot so the third time I asked for my beverage black please. The coffee was actually sour all by itself.... More

I lived in the neighborhood some 30 years ago and, like everyone else who lived nearby, was a beignet and coffee regular. So when we flew into New Orleans to attend a wedding a few weeks ago, naturally we made a bee-line to Morning Call. It was mid-day but empty which surprised me--back in the day that place was always... More
