I'm beginning to wonder if perhaps I just don't like beignets. I tried this place and Cafe du Monde, the two most famous beignet stands in all of New Orleans, and both were pretty bad. Cafe Beignet was by far the worst. Their beignets were hard, super oily and loaded with far too much powdered sugar. I am sure the oil using to fry these things was at least a month old. There was just a nasty old grease taste and the dense dough was overcooked (way too brown). The beignets were the consistency of thick loaf bread. I took one bite and was done. Not only that, it's in a huge tourist area so they have inflated prices to match. I did enjoy sitting in the lovely outdoor courtyard where very talented jazz musicians entertained us and passed the hat. That's the only reason I am giving this place the extra star.
