Welcome to Café Du Monde

The Original Cafe Du Monde Coffee Stand was established in 1862 in the New Orleans French Market. The Cafe is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It closes only on Christmas Day and on the day an occasional Hurricane passes too close to New Orleans.

The Original Cafe Du Monde is a traditional coffee shop. Its menu consists of dark roasted Coffee and Chicory, Beignets, White and Chocolate Milk, and fresh squeezed Orange Juice. The coffee is served Black or Au Lait. Au Lait means that it is mixed half and half with hot milk. Beignets are square French -style doughnuts, lavishly covered with powdered sugar. In 1988 Iced Coffee was introduced to the cafe. Soft drinks also made their debut that year.

Again, we are open 24/7 except we close Christmas eve @ 6PM and re-opening December 26th @ 6AM. This allows our staff some time with their families.

We're been here 3 times in 2 days! We came here on a Wednesday and Thursday and I was shocked to find that there was no line and plenty of tables. Btw, if u see a long line, don't get in it! Go to the take out window and buy your beignets and sit somewhere outside if there's no tables available. The beignets were fluffy and chewy inside and had a nice crisp on the outside. The powdered sugar was magical! Tons of the light snowy goodness piled on top of every beignet. This is definitely the best place for beignets.

Now you can not come to New Orleans without partaking in a Beignet! I went to one of the oldest and best places to taste one for the first time! The unique thing about this place is you make your order and the waiter goes to the front and pays for your food and you pay him back! This is great for the restaurant but kind of sucks for the waiter, if the patriots leave without paying! Beignets taste much like a funnel cake with sprinkled sugar on top! It was the perfect late night treat to soak up some of the alcohol we had been consuming all day!

Wonderful beignets and a great cup of coffee, in the rain with a little bit of fog. With a mist falling over the city, couldn't be more perfect and even a little romantic. LOVE NOLA!

This New Orleans institution is famous for its longevity and location. Remember the line on the street side is to be seated; the line around back on the levy side is for take out. It is usually crowded unless you get their early. When you visit have the beignet with powdered sugar and the hot chocolate : or the coffee of you like that sort of thing. Of course I hate coffee and not big on donuts, so I might not be the best judge.

Touristy, but a must if it's your first time in NOLA. Which is what everyone told me. Since it was my first time, I went. Plus, I had vouchers for beignets and coffee anyway. There are two lines, one to dine in and one for take out. The lines get pretty long, so If you don't want to wait, you probably have to go really early or pretty late. Luckily, it's open 24 hours. The beignets are like nothing I've ever had before in California. The coffee is a bit weak, but goes well with the heavy beignets and the copious amount of powdered sugar. Seriously, there's powdered sugar everywhere! But that's part of the atmosphere.

I would go back to Cafe Du Monde for the Beignets now. The service was quick, and the coffee was hot. It is a cash only business. I was lucky enough to be able to walk here from my hotel. The view of the water is peaceful.

Ok, the tables are dirty and sticky. We were sitting there and the waiter took a while to come. The hot chocolate was ok and the beignets were ok also. Morning Call in City Park, also in New Orleans is better than Cafe Du Monde.
