I have never experienced such goodness!!! The place was packed, lines moved quickly, servers helped customers find places to sit. Beignets and coffee came out very quickly and they are TO DIE FOR!!! If you get a chance, you really need to take a detour,...More

It was plumb busy when we got there in mid afternoon. This place is usually waiting in line full at nearly anytime of the day. We got one of the last table and were waited on also immediately. The donuts were hot, tastey, if not...More

Other than long lines it is a must place to visit. So so yummy, try to go at an off peak time so not such a long wait. But it is worth it. Fresh and yummy! Music by street performers was also nice

I love the take out window! Quick easy but bring cash for this window. I like this option because this place is so busy. And after all it’s about the beignet and all that powdered sugar.

Everyone says you have to get the beignets, so I did and they are delish. You can get them to go so I ate them at Jackson Square sitting on a park bench on a beautiful day but avoid the coffee. The cafe au lait...More

Cafe du Monde is our first breakfast stop in the morning when we're in the French Quarter. Delicious beignets and chickory coffee! The powdered sugar makes a mess of everything, but it's worth it! Nothing like it!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Yes there are places to sit but it's not really in a building. It's a large pavilion with open external walls and very crowded from morning until around 6-7 pm. The noise level might not be conducive for a meeting.
