Café Beignet, New Orleans, 8/7/17

Café Beignet is a small space made more spacious by an adjacent patio.  You enter and walk to the back counter to order, commonly there is a line to get in.  They offer sandwiches and the like but the main draw here are the beignets and coffee.  They are an order of 3 for $3.99 and are a staple of New Orleans food.  Many people go to the larger Cafe du Monde but I like the less chaotic feel here and the beignets are ‘fatter’ with a better bite to me.

After you place your order the staff with give you your coffee or other beverage and a number for your table – they bring out the hot donuts when ready.   The coffee was very acceptable but again it mainly is to wash down those tasty, crispy bits of sugar and dough.  They come doused with powdered sugar which will fly all over you if you’re not careful.  Hot and crispy on the exterior and yeasty and doughy in the middle, they are a perfect combination of sugar and grease.  Probably not something to eat everyday but when you’re in town don’t miss them.
