    The divine beignets (doughnuts) at this New Orleans institution are served warm with a generous coating of powdered sugar.

  • Allen A.

    Watch how they magically convert a little flour, oil, and powder sugar into wads of cash in front of your very eyes...

    Allen A. · August 8, 2011

    Don't wear black here. Powdered suga EVERYWHERE!

    Bring Cash! They don't take credit cards.

    Best Beignets in the world

    You must order some Beignets. And either some coffee or chocolate milk to drink!

    This place is overrated! Bad service, attitude and the table, chairs and floor were dirty while employees were sitting!!

    Fiona F. · September 17, 2012
  • Ruben G.

    Seems like the employees could care less about the customer. Dirty!!

    Oh yeah. Giddy up! Not a bad treat for just a couple of bucks!

    Beignets: Cafe Du Monde. As much as it's a cliché, it is what it is. It's cliché for the right reason. They make coffee, chicory, and beignets. That's the menu

    DO NOT go to the Riverwalk location, it's terrible -- the beignets were rocks. Make the trip to the "original"/"real" one on Decatur.

    ...don't wear black, haha...this is true! Too much sugar, but very tasty;-)

    If you eat beignets outside be sure to be upwind. Enjoy!

    NO classic, a must see. Featured on Man v. Food and Food Paradise (Donut Paradise)

    Look for the tall older Creole man who busses your table while he croons. Classy!

    Awesome beignets to die for

    Hot chocolate is creamy and rich best served in the winter! 

    Try the frozen cafe au lait. It's great when it's 95* out! The Riverwalk location is NOT "cash only," which is great.

    El · June 28, 2012
  • Charlie W.

    Make sure and bring cash as they only take cash.

    Charlie W. · June 19, 2012
  • Trevor C.

    They need a line for just beignets so I dont have to wait for someone to pick up 10 coffees

    Trevor C. · June 13, 2012
  • Mary Ann N.

    Biegnets are awesome! Watch out for the big ratatouilles!

    Don't try to clean your own table or the tall man will get on to you.

    Bill B. · April 29, 2012
  • Chad G.

    Worst service model ever. Long lines and the staff at the pick up window ignore you.

    Chad G. · April 22, 2012
  • Tiffany B.

    Pick a table with a view so you can people watch as you enjoy you enjoy your beignets and cafe au lait.

    Tiffany B. · March 28, 2012

    Having Beignet with the girls while the guys have meetings.

    Rachael W. · March 20, 2012
  • Jen C.

    If you do anything here, skip dinner and stuff your face with beignets.

    Dodge the tourists and go to Cafe Beignet on Royal or Bourbon. Alton Brown told me so.

    Amy A. · January 3, 2012
  • Trevonte C.

    $3.99 for really bad cup of coffee. I literally mean the worst coffee in have ever had. This seattle guy knows his coffee! :-(

    I've been to New Orleans many times & being a tea drinker, I have never stopped here. After many friends begged me to try CdM, I finally gave in... and WOW! Cafe au lait & beignets are outstanding!

    Dave G. · October 26, 2011
  • Phoebe L.

    Can't beat cafe au lait and beignets ...service isn't exactly 4 star but don't let that stop you. Definitely head inside if you don't feel like waiting in line. And DON'T WEAR BLACK! haha

    Phoebe L. · October 23, 2011
  • Richard B.

    FOR BEST (FRESHEST) RESULTS: 1. Go inside to avoid the patio line. 2. Order drinks, NO BEIGNETS. 3. Order beignets when drinks arrive. The servers have to wait in line for drinks, but not for food.

    Richard B. · October 20, 2011
  • Lisa H.

    Must see in French Market area

    Lisa H. · October 10, 2011
  • Richard B.

    There is 1+ hour line for the patio. Everyone just gets in line. If you skip the line you can go indoor where it is self-seating.

    Richard B. · October 8, 2011

    Beignets were disappointing. Not fluffy or fresh.

    Ryan S. · August 21, 2011

    Beignets, Beignets, Beignets

    Best coffee I've ever had! Service could use some work.
