    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

    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 for a late-night beignet and cafe-au-lait. (It's ok to have a powdered sugar fight too.)

    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.

    Patio and inside is self seating. Order everything when your server comes to your table the first time. Water, cafe a lait, beginetes. Pay with cash when they bring you everything at once.

    Open 24 hours! If you're drunk and in the French quarter...get here! Coffee and beignets will sober you up and everybody else is drunk too so you make friends!

    Open 24 hours a day so you can get you beignet and cafe au lait fix whenever you want. Don't expect to leave free of powdered sugar on your clothes - just enjoy it.

    Go early, like 6-9'ish, otherwise the line gets long and you'll be hangry. Falls into the disney'ish things 'done' in The French Quarter.

    Best time to come is evenings and early nights, beautiful setting. Relax, grab a table, sip your coffee, and take in the scenery and music around you. Romantic spot after sunset.
