We were at the Jackson square location multiple times. The beignets are consistently fresh, pillowy and nice. The cafe au lait is nice as the milk cuts through the chicory flavor. I may have found the perfect late night snack fix - beignets with milk!

Do go to the kitchen and see how the waitstaff queue up and fix your order - it’s fun watching the train move from station to station!

Very slow poorly organized service. We waited over 20 minutes for our server to clear our table. Food was good service was as NOT. Took over 1 hour 30 to get coffee and beignets.

Sure, it's iconic, but you're a fool if you wait in line here for over an hour. Visit when the wait is at a minimum.

Menu, found pasted onto the napkin dispenser, is strictly beignets & various forms of coffee. Usually always a line to enter to be seated at a table after 9 AM which grows lengthier by the hour, but because they have a large seaing capacity & orders are quickly taken & delivered by a server, the line moves considerably fast. Take out is available at the back side of the building where you will most likely find another line. Beignets are amazing as is the cafe au lait. An absolute must if you are in NOLA.

Go there only for beignets, not too many options, only coffee no tea
A bit super crowded, the lines are super long but the beignets are amazing
