    When in Café du Monde you have to order a Beignet, it's a traditional pastry.

    Quite good actually; I'm not sure why people have said the wait is too long... it is the first/original CDM location. I had an order with black coffee.

    Line can get long, take it to go and eat and drink by the river. You'll enjoy the nice breeze on the hot summer days.

    The location is iconic, and the beignets are not to be missed. The regular coffee is pretty good, but I especially like the frozen coffee. It's great on those hot New Orleans days! Cash only.

    If there's a huge line it front, ignore it and walk on in and find a table. There is no waiting line at Cafe du Monde.

    Great location and the fried sweet cakes live up to their billing. I wasn't a fan of the coffee but to each their own.

    Beignets and cafe au lait are a good first step to recovery after a night in the French Quarter. Crazy packed, but they run it like a well-oiled machine.

    Tourist trap. Plenty of other places to eat beignets aka funnel cake. Lines are a waste of time when there are so many other things to do and eat! Cross the street and buy an art piece to take home!
