I lived in the neighborhood some 30 years ago and, like everyone else who lived nearby, was a beignet and coffee regular. So when we flew into New Orleans to attend a wedding a few weeks ago, naturally we made a bee-line to Morning Call. It was mid-day but empty which surprised me--back in the day that place was always... More

Every time we visit New Orleans we try to run by the Morning Call. The Beignets are slightly different from the ones at Cafe Du Monde but are just as good. At the Morning Call you sugar your own. The coffee is great and the service is excellent. It's a bit smaller restaurant but the turnover is quick so there's... More

Great beignets and coffee and in a beautiful park!!!! Love!!!! 3 beignets are $2.20. Cafe au Lait is $2.20. Best not to wear black because you will get powdered sugar on you. :)

It's in a little strip mall and parking can be tricky but the coffee is soooooo worth it. The Beignets are always a tasty treat but it's really the coffee that's the draw. Always good and sooooo New Orleans

You can only order beignets with café aux lait. Our beignets were hot out of the fryer and our coffee was smooth. We were given a bag of powdered sugar to coat our beignets. We were there at 2pm in the afternoon and it was not crowded. Excellent.

If you need a food pit stop then morning call does fine. It's quite rustic inside with very friendly staff. Do they serve the best Beignets in NOLA, hmm probably not BUT at $2 for 3!! You just can't fall off and is worth a visit if you passing by, the coffee is very nice in there too.

Simple restaurant. Beignets were very good. Went there because Cafe du Monde was closed for renovations. Not disappointed at all! Beignets was excellent. I love how they provide the powdered sugar in paper bags to shake. Hot chocolate was also very good. Not a busy spot so it was a great place to chat with friends.

My wife grew up in New Orleans, so for her birthday we decided to take a weekend trip back. We woke up in the hotel and checked TripAdvisor for a place nearby for breakfast. Morning Call was near the top of this list and at the top of my wife's list. It was a very nostalgic visit for my wife... More
