Cafe Beignet, Canal St. Reviews

loved the experience! The coffee w/ chicory was clutch!!! The crayfish omelet was okay. I’ve never seen green peppers and tomatoes cut that large in an omelet. and there wasn’t crayfish inside the omelet just poured on top…it had really good flavor. And the grits could use a little help ‍♀️

Them man-catching Benigets were EVERYTHING they were supposed to be! ❤❤! Loved it!!!

While visiting NOLA, we decided to have breakfast at Cafe Beignet one morning. Originally, we went to the one on Bourbon St. but it had rained and there was only outdoor seating at that location, so we decided to go to the one on Canal St. It’s a cute restaurant on the main street. The cashiers were super friendly. There was a decently long line, but it went by fast. Our food came out to our table less than 10mins after we sat down. Everyone enjoyed their food. I ordered the cajun hashbrowns and they were really good, I’d eat them again! The beignets, however, were very disappointing. It was my first time trying them and they were VERY thick/doughy and had no flavor. I’d recommend Morning Call Coffee Stand if you want some really good beignets. Other than the beignets not being good, everything was nice. The only thing that I didn’t like too much was that the tables are small and round and so are the chairs. Being that I have thick thighs, those chairs were uncomfortable lol. And since there was a group of 6 of us it was hard for us all to fit in one spot with the small tables. I really liked the self-playing piano, that was cool. I would recommend this place, just not the beignets.

Cute Cafe with a lot of options. They have a self playing piano playing jazz tunes which was cool. I had the omelet and my boyfriend had scrambled eggs and bacon. We were disappointed that the bignets were overcooked.

The beignets are better than everywhere else. I can say that. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the hours on their website are not correct. Had to wait for them to open, and they weren’t very friendly about the inconvenience. Even at that, they opened 5 minutes later than the hours posted on the door with about 20 people waiting outside. It’s not hard to ensure that your own website and the posted hours at the restaurant match.


Beautiful cafe and of course powdered delicious beignets. I appreciated the Disney themed music and jazz! Also had the mocha coffee and praline pecans! Can’t wait to come back to NOLA.

Second Cafe Beignet I’ve been to and the food was just as good as any other. The service is good but always busy, food is good and the Beignets are amazing. Great place to get breakfast if you are experiencing New Orleans for the first time or the 100th. Best practice is to get there early, 8:00 or earlier as it is very busy throughout the day.

Didn’t get photos of the food , because we were way to hungry . But 5 stars for the interior design and fast service . Not very friendly though .. It is busy touristic location so I understand that part . The beignets were good actually , warm and not too greasy !

We’ve been dying for Beignets before leaving New Orleans and we’re glad to have stopped by here. Upon entering, it smelled so heavenly. I also didn’t realize that they served breakfast sandwiches also. Staff was very friendly as we ordered and made our coffee drinks. While waiting for our beignets, we enjoyed the music of the self-playing piano and the Disney music it played. Once we got our beignets, it was absolutely heavenly. Between it being deep-fried and the simplicity of powdered sugar, it goes great with a cup of coffee for breakfast. Do the Beignets!

I really enjoyed my experience here. The line was out the door but it moved quickly. I ordered a crawfish omelet and of course beignets. Both were served fast and fresh! I would definitely come here again.

Aja Williams

My husband and I decided to try this spot. The line was long but it was worth the wait. The mushroom omelet was delightful but the beignets were the best we had while visiting. Had to come back to buy the beignets mix.
