Beignets best in the city- nice and crisp- Both locations- Metairie and City Park, if you like thin and crisp order the "slits". City Park location has great atmosphere

Stopped here on a tour and the guide was right the beignets and cafe au lait were excellent. I am not a coffee drinker however, this was excellent. Our tour guide told us to sit at a table and the service would be faster and he was right. Our server was very nice and quick, while the line was long.

The beignets here are served plain. There is powdered sugar on the table. They were very good, but I prefer them already powdered when they come to the table. The restaurant was not crowded, and the beignets were fresh. Great local spot.

The beignets are so good and the staff is very friendly. This location is great if you want to avoid the crowds in the French Quarter location.

This place has nostalgic decor & is opened 24 hours. The beignets were lighter than Cafe de Monde's. Hot chocolate was delicious too. For us, Morning Call won the battle of beignets. Please... More

Morning call is the place for your beignet "fix" if you wish to avoid the press of the masses at Jackson Square.It's a petite quiet spot. Far more locals that tourists .The waitstaff are attentive, not rushed. And they are open around the clock!

I have been coming here since I was a little kid. It is nostalgic, and the quality never waivers. Coffee and beignets. The beignets are always crisp on the outside, hot out of the fryer, with the powdered sugar. Yummy! I took my aunt, and it was a trip down memory lane for both of us.

Love the beignets - better than another beignet place. Served hot & fresh when you order. Cold milk, hot coffee and other beverages. Service was friendly. Fun late night or anytime of day!

I will say that I did not find Morning Call until the day before I left. Only had one thing but it will keep me going back -- the beignets are so very delicious. Had them down at Jackson Square and thought they were horrible. I do not understand why that place is so crowded. Go to Morning Call if... More
