Order cafe au lait and beignets....what else?
The divine beignets (doughnuts) at this New Orleans institution are served warm with a generous coating of powdered sugar.
Watch how they magically convert a little flour, oil, and powder sugar into wads of cash in front of your very eyes...
Pick a table with a view so you can people watch as you enjoy you enjoy your beignets and cafe au lait.
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!
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.
relax with an iced coffee and beniette
This place is overrated! Bad service, attitude and the table, chairs and floor were dirty while employees were sitting!!
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!
One word: Beignets! Don't care much about cafe au lait.
Love it ....
lot of people
Of course the Beignets were great but trying to get service early in the afternoon was frustrating. We ended up getting take away. It was worth it though and the place seemed less busy in the evening
The beignets here are very good, but I can't say the same about their cafe au lait.
Awesome to share it
Nice quiet atmosphere
Warm Powdered Biegnets and Hot Chocolate...Yum!!!
The beignets are wonderful.
Walked here to EAT- No food
Good but don't get the hype :/
Their beignets are awesome!
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.
Make sure and bring cash as they only take cash.
They need a line for just beignets so I dont have to wait for someone to pick up 10 coffees
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.
Worst service model ever. Long lines and the staff at the pick up window ignore you.
Having Beignet with the girls while the guys have meetings.
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.
$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!
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
Must see in French Market area
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.
Beignets were disappointing. Not fluffy or fresh.
