    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
