    Beignets are great but I almost think the long wait never makes it worth it. Try your luck at the to go counter instead.

    Don't get stuck in line. Inside area usually has a few open tables that you can sit at immediately.

    There is not other cafe at New Orleans with beignets like this. Are really awesome. Try to take a table, or just take an order to go while you walk trough the French Market

    Better on a cold day. Less crowded and more appetizing. But, a must while in town either way. Stick to the classic beignet and café au lait.

    Yes, the beignets and chicory coffee is worth the almost stressful and noisy atmosphere. Kitschy and interesting surroundings still though.

    Great beignets, but don't care about cafe au lait. The dine-in experience is also interesting from getting wait staff to the atmosphere.

    A NOLA must! Gotta keep your eyes peeled for an open table though, and the service is depressing (no one is happy to be working there). THE best coffee - take home a can!

    Yes, it's overrated, but for $5 pp, it's still a must-stop for anyone visiting the crescent city! Be prepared to wait in line for either take out or seating. :-)

    The line outside the front (see photo) is misleading. That is just a line of people looking for tables to sit. Once seated a waiter will come to serve you. There's another line 4 takeout in back.
