    Came here every single night that I was in Nola. Recommend going at nighttime. No line and it's so peaceful and beautiful!

    The beignets were everything I expected and more - best eaten hot and fresh. Worth the wait, grab some of their beignet mix to take home because trust me, you're going to crave these one you're home

    Absolutely amazing and completely worth the wait. If the line seems too long for you now just come back when it's not breakfast hours, it will most likely be shorter.

    Iconic place. Have a cup of coffee and a beignet. (The coffee isn't super but it's the experience!)

    Open 24/7. A fun late night treat after a night out in the French Quarter or on Frenchmen Street.

    Their beignets and coffee are off the chain! You definitely want to drop by here before leaving New Orleans. Even if it's crowded and you have to wait for a table, the line moves quickly. Worth it!

    Love this place!! The beignets are amazing and their frozen coffee is delicious. It's always packed BUT you don't have to wait on line.

    If you find an open table, claim it. It's self seating and your server will come to you. The Beignets are yummy and a must try for the first time. 😋

    First place I wanted to visit. Also made sure it was the last place I hit up on the way out. Huge line at 4 PM, no line at 7 AM.

    Go to the cafe du monde in the outlet river walk! Shorter line and you can wait with air conditioning!

    I thought that the beignets would be too sweet but the doughnuts had no sugar and it was just the frosting of sugar which is ok. "Eat slow cos you'll never get to taste your first beignets ever again"

    The Beignet Formula. 1 person = 1 serving of beignets. 2 people = 2 servings. 3 people = 4 servings. 4 people = 5 servings. Iced coffees all round, prepare the be stuffed full of doughy goodness.

    The Cafe au Lait and Beignets are a must for any visitor to the French Quarter.

    There is a reason this place is still a New Orleans must. I had the cafe au lait and the beignets - all excellent.

    We went just for the beignets. Tip: if you don't care about sitting and getting coffee, order at the to go window and eat as you walk or rest at the river with your bag of goodies.

  • Kaylee

    It says wait in line - don't wait in line tourists. Nobody actually waits

    Omg! Miles of line just for beignets... Don't ever try to go to the Restroom: it looks like the one of the movie Saw. Go to the Cafè du Monde on River Walk! Better quality and service!

    Definitely doesn't meet expectations. Really just a filthy dump.

  • Amber T.

    These are the best beignets you can get anywhere. Common knowledge. So good.

    Poor service. The waitstaff barely spoke English, which is expected when traveling abroad but... Also, why the dog hate? The place was so filthy, maybe a dog or two would help clean up.

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

    Beignets and Iced Cafe Au Lait is a little piece of heaven! Definitely a must when visiting NOLA!!

  • Cynthia H.

    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.

    Cynthia H · July 28
  • Rudy C.

    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.

    Rudy C · July 27
  • Andrew G.

    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.
