    In the argument of who has the best beignets, Cafe Beignet is one of the 2 most well known. There are 2 locations of Cafe Beignet near Bourbon and I find myself at this one, which I'll label the "late closing, party one". The other Cafe Beignet resembles more of a quaint coffee shop. There's really no difference in quality beignet between the two, so just pick whichever one fits your mood.

    If you see a fenced off area, hear live Jazz music, and see a billion tables scattered about, that's where Cafe Beignet is tucked away. The gate is actually labeled Musical Legends Park and Cafe Beignet pretty much serves the whole place with beignets and other foods. If you can secure a table during a jazz night, great, since you're pretty lucky. The way it works here is that you first place an order, get a number, then find an open table to sit and wait for someone to bring your food.

    -=-Beignets-=- Super duper powdered sugar here, but then again that's how it's served everywhere else. Prepare to wipe your mouth off and resist the urge to sneeze. In comparison to others, mine was not as super soft, but still had a good taste to it. The oiliness was the most here from when the beignet was fried. You are going to have to try this place for yourself. Cmon, there's only 2 well known beignet stops anyway.

    A great breakfast spot for a cajun omelet or beignet. Stop by for live music and a cocktail later in the day.

    Our work team took Sunday afternoon off and decided to wander around the French Quarter. The group consensus favoured a place where we could sit outside and enjoy some live jazz and an adult beverage. And that's what we got! Service was friendly, but we had to come to them at either the bar or the coffee shop area. The music was quite good (the name of the band escapes me) and the expected free will donation at the end was a small price to pay for such a pleasant and relaxing part of our afternoon.

    A New Orleans tradition for the last two hundred years, Cafe Beignet serves the best chickory blend of Cafe Ole this side of the Mississippi. Their beignets, a golden, crispy pastry lightly dusted with confecctioners sugar, is the perfect way to start the day in the Big Easy.

    A really cute cafe serving beignets among other breakfast and Cajun items. I would go specifically for said beignets and coffee - but nothing else. If you have already done Cafe du Monde and/or are tired of lines, this is where you should go. There were definitely more locals who did the same.

    This place is a bust. Another tourist trap, so don't get sucked in. There are better more authentic places to get coffee and french doughnuts. Just keep walking down the street.

    Great beignets and you'll probably wait less than Cafe Du Monde. If you're lucky, there'll be someone playing music on the street right near the cafe. In our case, some guy playing a cello. Nice.

    Picked up an order of beignets to go, and the paper bag they gave us came filled with (and I kid you not) about a ¼ pound of powdered sugar! The beignets themselves were OK, and are always best fresh, but I found that Cafe du Monde's are a bit better. So if you need a quick beignet fix while wandering down Bourbon Street, settling on Café Beignet is as good as it gets!

    GREAT coffee and Beignets. Steps away from some of the best antique shops in the Quarter. You can also eat other things here, but why?! The Beignets are amazing!!

    A surprisingly quiet place in the heart of Bourbon Street, with sweets (their beignets are fabulous ) and live jazz
