    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.

    This place is a must visit as part of the New Orleans experience. Make sure you bring cash, but you won't need a lot.

    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!

    Prepare to wait for an hour on a weekend. Caution: do not go in the bathroom, unless you want to kill your appetite. It's a scene from horror movie.

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