The Beignets are Food :)
Why not a large Cafe Au Lait with your beignet?
Beignets are great but I almost think the long wait never makes it worth it. Try your luck at the to go counter instead.
Small glass of water is a nice touch.
Drink and eat here. Ask questions later.
Powdered sugar is a weapon of mass destruction.
We went around back to get cafe au lait and beignets to go & sat along the Mississippi, fantastic way to start a day! Then walk through the French market!
A must-do in New Orleans.
So busy... Make time to go lines are out the door and down the block
Amazing beignets. And the coffee is out of this world.
Love this crowded messy place!
Get your beignets (french doughnuts) here. This one is crowded at all times, be sure to check the other CDM at the Riverwalk. Delicious!
Beignets are amazing!!
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
A Nawlins rite of passage!! ❤️Cafe du Monde!
Make sure not to cough while eating the beignets!
Beignets of course!! And don't wait in line! Its find a table and sit, common tourist mistake.
The hot chocolate is instant and not very good.
Beignets and coffee are the ultimate hangover cure.
What can I say - it's a staple and a classic. Everyone has to do it at least once ❤️
One order= 3 beignets. I can only eat 2 MAX! Yum
Tip your waiter! Heard they only make tips...
The beignets did not disappoint. There's powered sugar everywhere! Don't wear anything nice and black. :)
Overcrowded and overhyped.
Everything is good!!!
Seat yourself. Look around find a table. Squeeze 5 to a table.
Worth the wait but get it to go.
The beignets are great. If you've never been, then you should go here at least once. Very close to Jackson Square.
The beignets are overrated
Classic New Orleans! Love the beignets and coffee. Can be crowded but take some time for the experience. I never miss stopping when I'm in NOLA
It's self seating!
You Must try this sugar Dust springle "donuts"
Crowded all the time.. Their Beignet is to die for and Cafe Au Lait is good.. By the way - cash only!
Must go in NOVA. go in and find a table they don't seat you.
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.
Overrated beignets and long lines.
Great for a late-night beignet and cafe-au-lait. (It's ok to have a powdered sugar fight too.)
Grab a table when you see it. Worth the wait and hectic atmosphere.
Great beignets, but don't care about cafe au lait. The dine-in experience is also interesting from getting wait staff to the atmosphere.
Everything was great be ready for a wait tho
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!
Get the hot chocolate and beignets
Worth the wait! If you're in Nola stop by for your caffeine fix.
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. :-)
Also important to note this is CASH ONLY!
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.
