Cafe Beignet, Decatur Street Reviews


We ended up going here instead of the ‘other’ place because the line was too long. The plain beignets were heavier (and larger) than I expected so I only managed to eat one but someone else was able to eat all three of the ones with chocolate.

There was one of those pianos that played by itself which was interesting and would probably be very entertaining for kids.

While we were there, everyone started cleaning up to the point where we thought that it must be closing time but it wasn’t. Not sure what that was about.


We came on a busy Saturday morning so we knew the line would be crazy. It was super long but went through it pretty fast. The beignets were HUGE and tasted really good and fresh. The coffee was also pretty tasty. The staff was really friendly as well. The only complaint I have is there’s very limited seating so maybe have someone sit at an empty table while someone else orders. It’s also a great location close to the tram and aquarium.

Loved this place, super cozy. The Sandwich was amazing, the coffee was honestly not my favorite could of been better. The staff was so helpful and friendly, they made us feel welcomed. The food arrives pretty fast, I would recommend to start looking for tables as soon as you wait in line to make your order. The seating area fills up quick, who wouldn’t want to sit around history all around you. Such a lovely experience to have with your loved ones. Gives you such a nostalgic feel and beautiful views. I honestly don’t have anything bad to say about this restaurant.

The line at Cafe Du Monde was absurd so I told my husband that we should keep walking. I’m not standing in a Disneyland level line when I can’t even eat beignets because I have Celiac disease.

We ended up at Cafe Beignet and stood in maybe a 20 minute line. I appreciated that they were taking Covid seriously and had someone at the door checking vaccine cards.

I got a cafe au lait as I didn’t see anything that was gluten free on the menu. I wanted to get a beignet soap but they didn’t have price tags and looked too busy for me to flag down just to ask the price.

We were able to snag a table and my husband concluded, after trying the beignets at our hotel (Hyatt Centric) and Cafe Du Monde, that he prefers Cafe Beignet. They’re about $1.25 more expensive but they’re noticably bigger beignets.

Such a nice spot for lunch. It was a bit crowded but I definitely understand why. The food was good for a Cafe spot but the beignets were to die for. I really came to NOLA with one mission and that was to try an authentic beignet and this place satisfied my wish.

It was fine. I’m not sure I fully understand the excitement over beignets. These were lukewarm (for supposedly being fresh) and we just okay.

In addition to the two types of beignets (regular and chocolate drizzled), we also tried an Andouille sausage omelet, Crawfish Etouffee, hot cafe au lait, and an iced mocha cafe au lait.

The highlight was the omelet. Hands down. Sausage was tasty and the eggs were cooked well. The etouffee was middle of the road. Not much spice to it.

I ended up having to scoop up extra powdered sugar and chocolate drizzle from the beignets to add to my iced mocha. It was pretty flavorless. My husband had the to use multiple sugar packets for his cafe au lait.

I guess that we went for the experience and to say that we had beignets is NOLA. I don’t know that I’d make an extra trip back.

Nice place, family friendly, automated piano plays “live music”, Beignets are great and cheap (effectively fancy funnel cakes). My only issue with this cafe is the doors are wide open. I’m talking an entire wall is basically opened up. If you wanted air conditioning, it’s the equivalent of a ceiling fan on low. Not the best place to escape the brutal summer heat. Other than that, it’s worth a try!

Good food beautiful restaurant affordable price. I got the western omelet and an order of beignets! The only thing I will say is the beignets are quite big! One order might too much for one person but delicious none the less. 8/10 recommend.

I’ve never chewy garlic bread passed as french toast before – but I guess there’s a first for everything?

Maybe they’re having supply chain issues with their bread.

But also their omelette was very rubbery.

Even the fruit they served – cantaloupe and honeydew – it tasted like is was canned and old.

On a positive note – the coffee wasn’t bad.

Michal Brichacek

I hate to say it, but the beignets that everyone raves about are overrated. They’re good, but they’re not that good. Still, they are something you should try in New Orleans. The big debate is which is better – Cafe Du Monde or Cafe Beignet? We tried both. We liked the beignet’s at Cafe Du Monde better, but the ambience and decor of Cafe Beignet more. The coffee was equally poor at both. This particular location is very cool inside!
