My wife and I stopped here while we were visiting New Orleans. We went there about 8pm, and it was packed. You'll need to be prepared to walk around to get a seat. When we did find someplace, the service was prompt and courteous. The menu is rather simple: Beignets, coffee and hot chocolate. The Beignets were quite good, with tons of powdered sugar on them. The coffee was very good. My wife said that that hot chocolate was excellent, especially after sprinkling in some of the excess powdered sugar we had on hand. If you go here on a cool evening, be sure to wear something warm because seating is outside. Next time I think I'll stop by in the morning during breakfast time. The place is open 24/7, though, so you can stop in any time.

It's the most famous fried dough in the world. I don't go there very often as a resident of New Orleans but it's the only place I would go for beignets. The delicious fried dough covered with copious amounts of powered sugar are a must for New Orleans tourists. It's also located jnext to the French Market so you can often hear and feel the New Orleans experience. Make sure to knock those calorie bombs back with some chicory coffee so you don't go into a food coma!

Famous, and for a good reason. Amazing coffee, amazing beignets, and quality experience. If you just want a souvenir, there's a company store across the street that'll keep you from having to stand in line with the people there to drink coffee. A must-do if in New Orleans!

The wait is sooooooo long, the line is so long. And I was lining up in the wrong line!!! I was in the line for the seating inside, but we had dogs, so we can only get the to go, which the line was at the back. So, the worst thing is, it's another LONG LINE at the back. So I waited really long just to get a cup of coffee, and some beignet (tiny donuts covered with powdered sugar). It's messy to eat those, because of the powdered sugar, but it goes really well with the coffee. This is a MUST go place when you drop by new orleans, if you love coffee and donuts. It's the ONLY thing they serve. They also have hot chocolate drink.

I do not understand the hype around Cafe Du Monde... I'm no stranger to New Orleans as I've been here several times. I feel like every time I I come here, people always tell me to go to Cafe Du Monde. I'm typically not one for tourist attractions, but I thought I'd check it out and took my husband with me. Here's how it went: We arrived to an insanely long line, which moved surprisingly quicker than I anticipated. The hostess sat us down at a dirty table which hadn't been cleaned from the previous customers. There was old beignets and coffee all over the table. When the waitress finally came over to clean the table she was extremely rude. In the middle of taking our order, the kicked out the customers at the table next to us. This is not a place you can sit and chat over coffee. Our food arrived quickly. The beignets were good, but I was not impressed with the coffee. I've had better beignets at other cafes in NOLA and I have very high expectations for coffee, so I was not surprised it wasn't very good. Overall, I relate this experience similar to taking a tourist tour in a foreign country. Things move much to quickly to enjoy, and the overall experience was medicare at best. I will not return to Cafe Du Monde again as I felt the service was deplorable and the food was not worth the effort. There are many cafes and restaurants in New Orleans which provide better food and better service than this tourist disaster.

This is one of those places where being in-the-know can get you better service. I can't tell you my secrets though. Cut your hangover time down on the weekends by going there at 0430. That's the best that I can do for you. #Coffee
