I ♥ beignets.

For our first full day in Nola, we slept in!!!
What a luxury!?
We took it easy and moseyed on down to
Cafe du Monde.
The lines were unbelievably long.
Approximately an entire city block.
One line was to sit down,
the other to take out.
Both lines move extremely quick.
And it's worth a wait!!!
The menu includes only:
beignets and coffee.
Breakfast perfection!!!
Once we sat down,
we ordered beignets and cafe au laits.
It was out in a jiffy!!! Best breakfast ever.
As such, I bought three too many boxes of beignets. Ooopsie!!!
That just means I must give away all three boxes. If you want to make this most ah-mazing breakfast ever sans lines or traveling to Nola, just leave a comment or email me at thecompanyshekeeps@gmail.com.
Just like Cafe du Monde, it's first come, first serve so hurry up!!! Xoxo-BLC


  1. I love beignets! But I'm not sure I could make them myself from the mix to taste as wonderful as they do from Cafe du Monde. However, if you find they are easy to make and you ever want to purchase more mix, they sell it at World Market!

  2. YUM! I actually had the mix sitting in my pantry for the longest time, but never got around to using it. After reading your post I need to hit up Central Market and buy a replacement I think!

  3. Oh my gosh, I was just in NOLA and I went to Cafe Du Monde, and cannot agree more with you that the Beignets are to die for. Just looking at them makes me want to eat them all. :)

  4. YUM!! I'd love to try my hand at making beignets!

  5. I'm so sad that I'm not in the first three commenters. I LOVE NOLA & Cafe Du Monde. I'm on a quest to get there this Memorial Day, but it is looking iffy.

    Glad you enjoyed it!

  6. Thank you for having some for me!!! I know my freshly fried & powdered bunch is being overnighted, YES?!?!?! How precious you looookkkkk! So cute!

  7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Beignets!

  8. Aren't they the best! My family and I went there many moons ago and I still remember that wonderful breakfast. I can't wait to take my hubby one day!

  9. I love beignets! There is another drive through Cafe du Monde closer to where my in-laws live. Everytime we are in NO I make my husband take me there. I'm not supposed to eat them in the car due to the powdered sugar, but I can't help myself! They are just so good!

  10. I have beignets every time I go to Nola. Cafe du Monde is yummy:)
