The coffee with chicory and the Beignets were wonderful, the atmosphere was fun. Very busy but easily found a table. So much powdered sugar it was funny.

Beignet's are pretty much a must if you're visiting NO. We tried them at several locations and they're all tasty. We decided to visit Cafe Du Monde in the evening after walking by in the morning and seeing a line that was two blocks long....More

This is a great treat to have while visiting New Orleans. The line looks super long but the day we waited it went by in no time.

Been coming here for years. Kudos for preserving the menu, quality, atmosphere, and nostalgia. Service? Horrible. 8 am and waited over 20 minutes just to order; 35 to get a coffee and beignets. I obviously sat in the wrong server’s station. Meanwhile, countless other servers...More

Had to go like the other zillion people. Have to admit even tho the line was extensive it went fairly quickly. They are used to large crowds and handle it well. The beignets were good but I had others that were just as good. Guess...More

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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Bruce, There are no savory beignets at Cafe Du Monde. You can have regular beignets or pralines. There are two types of coffee there, French Roast or Chicory. The line is always long and always moves fast. There is... More
