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.

I'm a bit baffled. While I love the history and romanticism around Cafe du Monde, I fail to understand the excitement over the coffee and beignets. I have celiac disease, so no beignets for me...but while they smelled lovely, they aren't anything I can get elsewhere. The coffee (we had decaf with chicory) was good...but it was coffee. Nothing exceptional. The environment is blah--there's no intimacy or warmth, and the serving staff doesn't interact with you at all. I would go so you can say you've been there...but that's about it.

Long line but it was worth the wait. First time I ever had a beignet... chased it with 3 more. Yep, they are quite tasty. Had a couple of others from other places... not as good as Café Du Monde.

The coffee and beignets were lovely; however, this place apparently has a raging sexual harassment problem. The manager, a tall thin man in his 50s, was going down the line putting his hands on every female server, rubbing backs, etc., and one he even put two fingers into her waistband and untucked her shirt with a "bloop!" sound. When I confronted him about it, he said "she knows I'm just joking" and then kept trying to turn his back and leave. He was clearly not surprised or embarrassed that he was being accused of impropriety. I wonder if he does the hiring; if so, it makes sense that all the servers are immigrant women and most are from Asian countries; maybe he expects them to be more submissive and put up with his BS. This guy needs some hardcore sensitivity training, or better yet, to be in a job where he doesn't "control" people, as one server described it to me when I asked about him. If he acts this way in front of customers, what is he doing behind the scenes?

Had a great experience early in the morning (5:30). Both employees I spoke to were very pleasant and the beignets were fabulous. OJ was a very small cup for the price, but was tasty. Got breakfast to go and watched the sun rise near the wharf.

NOT WORTH THE WAIT. First off, we decided to grab a table instead of waiting in line. Once a table was available, BAM! Its taken ..so act quick. Our table never got clean so we sat there with leftovers . The woman who was supposed to be serving our section didnt until 45 minutes later. Yes this place is PACKED, but they should upgrade their staffing to compensate. A different lady offered to serve us if the original lady wasn't there, but eventually ours came. She could hardly speak English, so it took us a while to order although we made it very easy. We offered to help them with bringing out water and my step brothers went back but couldn't because there was a slow line in which servers stood in to get the tables they have's orders. They couldn't cook fast enough, which is a shame. The beignets were average I guess, tasting only like funnel cake shaped differently. The frozen coffee wasn't particularly special, but when you're sweating your body weight off, it tastes spectacular. I saw a total of 5 different servers for like 100 tables. The workers must've been sweating like crazy in their long sleeved shirt and pants. I felt bad for them, working in hot weather in a dirty facility. Not worth it, but the food was good. They need to do some reconstruction of that cafe. It was confusing whether we should stand in line or not.

One of the few places I found in French Quarter reasonably priced. Beignets were excellent and cafe au lait was wonderful. Kind of surprised they were not over commercialized. Exceeded my expectations. It's packed though. EVERYONE goes there. Worth the trip for a nice sweet treat. Prepared well and quick service.

For those who are Chinese, beignets are those morning rolls we have with our congee dipped in powdered sugar. Nothing special. Even the people making the beignets in the back are all Chinese. I was not impressed with the coffee either. Tasted like watered down Vietnamese coffee for double the price. Vietnamese coffee uses the same coffee and makes it 10x better. This place is over rated and of course a tourist trap. The penny machines outside is good with nice designs. Please note that the takeout lines are a lot longer than the eat in. Its way more worth it to order inside. Service was mediocre but that's how I always imagined cafe du monde to be.

Cafe Du Monde is a must-stop coffeehouse. The location is iconic, and the beignets are not to be missed. The regular coffee is pretty good, but I especially like the frozen coffee. It's great on those hot New Orleans days! Oh, and it's cash only.
