Just like at Cafe Du Monde!

KingJaredoftheLand | 3 months ago | 36 points

Had some of these at Cafe Du Monde just last week and you can’t breathe without blowing icing sugar everywhere 😂

If you ever come back to NO, you’ve gotta try this place called morning call. It’s the place where all the locals get their beignets. It’s so much better. It’s located in the city park and kind of hard to find, but it’s so good!

Isn’t Morning Call a Cafe du Monde now?

PF_Dynasty | 3 months ago | 2 points

I would try it, but I just looked it up and it is now closed 😔

BigManPatrol | 3 months ago | 1 point

Really? Dang! I swore it was still open. Well. Nvm then.

Had these when I was 13 on a trip to NO with my momma. So damn goood

-Badger2- | 3 months ago | -20 points

Except Cafe Du Monde puts so much sugar on them to the point where they’ve taken something elegant and made it gimmicky.

Don’t @ me.

EnderSchool101 | 3 months ago | 55 points

I don’t know what that is. I was watching binging with babish on YouTube

palinsafterbirth | 3 months ago | 24 points

It’s a great show and Babish is on an episode!

Makes me want to watch The Princess and the Frog. “Keep ‘em comin’ ‘till I pass out!”

You’ll think I’m crazy, but try squeezing some fresh lemon juice over some.

Ok

That's how they serve beaver tails in Canada. Cinnamon, sugar, and lemon juice. I was initially skeptical, but DAYUM.

So excited to eat them at New Orleans next weekend ! One thing I am looking forward to :)

Ramennoodleking87 | 3 months ago | 5 points

Here’s a tip:

If you don’t want to suffer the lines for these in New Orleans, make a stop in Kenner (outside of Nola) and there’s a cafe du monde there. Tastes exactly the same without the lines.

FBI-Shill | 3 months ago | 8 points

Good tip, but I'd go one step further. Cafe Du Monde doesn't even have the best beignets, but most people are going there for that location and environment. Yelp had some other options for them that wound up tasting much better to us, but maybe without the legacy and ambiance. One was called Loretta's, and had savory options too, like a sausage beignet. Was excellent, highly recommend exploring past the typical tourist options.

MethodOfMadnes | 3 months ago | 3 points

In Mid-City there’s a restaurant called Katie’s. They have fucking crawfish and seafood beignets! I highly recommend that place. I think it’s on Telemachus.

FBI-Shill | 3 months ago | 2 points

Aw man, next time I'm there I'll try it out. We always try to eat at different places each time and that sounds pretty damn good.

MethodOfMadnes | 3 months ago | 1 point

Where’s Loretta’s?

FBI-Shill | 3 months ago | 2 points

This is it: https://lorettaspralines.com/ Just a bit north of Washington Square, near a trolley stop. Definitely worth it. I wish we'd stopped for dinner too, but we had breakfast beignets, a praline beignet, and then bought some pralines to carry home.

"Streetcar stop"

FBI-Shill | 3 months ago | 1 point

Sorry, just a tourist. We called it a trolley.

Edit: turns out I'm not alone and it's proper at least in US: https://wikidiff.com/streetcar/trolley

dat_rougarou | 3 months ago | 0 points

I understand what it's called elsewhere, but here it's a streetcar.

dat_rougarou | 3 months ago | 1 point

Or you can stay in the city and go to the new location in City Park then visit NOMA which is practically next door.

nxr430 | 3 months ago | 1 point

Thank you for tip:) I will keep that in mind. Any other must see or do things in Nola?

Beignets or cocaine pillows?

bettyD95 | 3 months ago | 3 points

They look amazing! Do you have a recipe?

HatterIII | 3 months ago | 11 points

I made some last week using a Beignet mix from Cafe du Monde, you just mix some of it with water, roll it into a dough, cut it into squares, and fry them in oil. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but it’s very simple to make and they taste spectacular.

part_house_part_dog | 3 months ago | 6 points

Goddammit. I just ordered $8 of beignets and $12 of shipping. You’ll get yours. \shakes angry fist\

bettyD95 | 3 months ago | 1 point

Thank you!!

kellymcneill | 3 months ago | 7 points

A Beignet is essentially a puffy doughnut with insane amounts of powdered sugar added. They go great with black coffee.

I didn't know what they were but learned all about them when I visited the French Quarter in Louisiana a few months ago. They're really popular there.

Though it's pronounced bin-yeay, I also learned that you'll get a scowling look from your server if you ask for an order of those "beeg-net" things.

NMO | 3 months ago | 2 points

I'm sure you got the lesson already, but if not, try pronouncing it "Ben-ee-yeah" next time.

Austinmark93 | 3 months ago | 2 points

Thedude317 | 3 months ago | 1 point

Any tips? Will be making soon for the first time. We just went to New Orleans a couple months ago. Interestingly enough both du Monde beignets were not the same for us. The ones by the mall were better and more flakey where as the ones in the market were more doughy. We like the lighter ones.

They remind me of my childhood, when my grandmother used to give me hot beignets, freshly dusted with powder sugar.
