Some swear the beignets here are better than those at Café du Monde, and we can attest that they’re usually fresh out of the deep fryer, but we’re true to the CdM for just the right chewiness and puffiness of its beignets. Still, you won’t find insane lines here, and it also serves waffles, brioche French toast, gumbo, and simple sandwiches and salads. Both locations have nice patios; there’s even live jazz Thursday through Sunday afternoons and evenings at the Bourbon Street location, a respite from the street's insanity.
