The Zagat Review
"Scrumptious" , "piping hot" beignets sprinkled with "magic fairy dust" (aka confectionery sugar) and "out-of-this-world" coffee, including a "wonderful" chicory version, make this "legendary" French Quarter cafe one of "the best ways to start your day in the Big Easy" – or end it (it's open 24 hours); the huge, mostly open-air space is often "crowded" and service is "all function, no frills" , but "tourists and locals alike" are "greatly entertained" by the "people-watching" ; P.S. "don't wear black" – you're almost "guaranteed" to leave covered in powdered sugar.

This place is amazing! The line may look long but it moves fast. It's cash only and super reasonably priced. You do seat yourself, the servers will come by and clear the table from the past guests and take your order. In a great location for people watching. The second time we came we were able to sit in front of a man playing music on the side. Great experience every time!

Don't be driven away by the long lines. This place is quick and efficient. My wife and I were in a long line of about 50 people, and we were able to get to a seat in about 10 minutes. Also, you should know that there is a second line in the back for people that want to take their order to go. I didn't stand in that line, but it appeared to move very quickly. There are only a couple items to order from the menu, and this helps get people in and out quickly. I really enjoyed the food and ambiance and would recommend it to my friends and family.

Anytime day or night, the fried pastry pillows, buried under a blizzard of powdered sugar, served here will hit the spot! Paired with cup of coffee (with chicory!), it's quick treat that is well worth the occasional wait in the fast moving line. The service was fast and efficient and the atmosphere is buzzing with conversation and excitement. Yes, it is popular with tourists, but Cafe Du Monde remains true to it's roots, so the crowd is filled with lots of locals as well. Highly recommended!!!
