If you're trying to get your beignet fix in the French Quarter and want to avoid the frantic crowds at Café Du Monde, head to less-hectic Cafe Beignet, runner-up for the city's most beloved puff pastries, and creator of exceptional Cajun plates. This European-style sidewalk bistro will set you up with a rich cup of coffee and an order of three beignets that are thicker and doughier than the airy versions at Café Du Monde, but just as fresh and coated heavily with powdered sugar. Looking for a full meal? We'd suggest grabbing a seat on the twinkle-lit outdoor courtyard, where you can enjoy live jazz and NOLA specialties like a crawfish omelette, a roast beef po-boy, jambalaya, and gumbo.
