    Пончики так себе. Кофе так себе. Туристический аттракцион. Еще и и официантки ни бельмеса не понимают.

    Don't wait in the line like a tourist - if you see an open table, you just grab it.

    Most classic and historic beignets in New Orleans. Seat yourself and enjoy them with coffee or water

    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.
