Located near Jackson square, this coffee and french doughnut spot is a must hit spot. The doughnuts are great and it's always very crowded. Not being a coffee drinker...I recommend the beignets served with chocolate milk. The seating is tough sledding with large groups- we had a group of six. The menu is pretty easy, drinks and beignets. They are... More

Where else can you wait to sit at a dirty table, get a coffee and beignets and never get service and still come back for more! Always a good sweet treat and will forever be part of my NO experience.

The line was so long we gave up after waiting 20 minutes. They were so busy there was no way to get good service. They are cash only. There should of been signs saying that all over the place but there was not any till we were in sight of the front of the line.

If you are anywhere near this place, skip the original location in the French Quarter proper and find yourself in a relaxing atmosphere. They have outdoor dining so you can enjoy the shade & the river view instead of the levy wall view. Best Kept Secret of NOLA

It is the real deal! The quality of the coffee and beignets was exactly what we had expected. Cash only as posted. Bathrooms are small with long lines, so you might plan ahead.

This is the famous place for great coffee and French donuts called Beignets. They have some indoor and a good amount of outdoor seating. Seat yourself and the waiter/waitress will come over quickly to take your order. They have water and soft drinks as well, but coffee and beignets are the staple. It is “cash only” and be prepared to... More

This small branch of the historical Cafe du Monde in Decatur street is located within the Riverwalk Shopping Center. If you want to avoid the insane queues and fuzziness of the Decatur branch, this is a more quiet alternative. The windows provide a nice view of the Mississippi river and there are also a few tables outside. The beignets and... More

The cafe is a branch of the main outlet at Decatur St. Unlike its 24 hour parent, this one is in an aircond environment. As the mall appears a little quiet, the beignets may also be a bit off freshness. Still, if it was served hot with fresh coffee, and they were good. Nice stop if you;re shopping at the... More

Stopped in about 1030 pm. Quiet and good service. Had a cafe a late and hot chocolate. And the local donuts- you get 3. (Beignets) $9. Stop if you can, the one by the water front is nice.

Thank lynzp

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
