    Terrible over rated. You have to be drunk to find anything redeeming about the coffee and food.

    Make sure you have cash. It's simple...beignets and coffee...get there before 9 to avoid the line.

    The wait for a table seems long but usually goes pretty fast. The coffee was great and the beignets were delicious.

    Well you gotta do it. Rain every day so couldn't go to the original location but thus mall location had the same beignets.

    The line is long, but it moves fast. Good spot for breakfast--take an order of beignets to go and eat them on a bench in Jackson Square.

    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

    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.

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

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

    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

    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.

    Don't wear black here. Powdered suga EVERYWHERE!

    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.
