Where to Find the Best Beignets in New Orleans

New Orleans is world renown for its deliciously diverse culinary scene, but there’s no sweet treat more iconic to the Big Easy than beignets. For the uninitiated, they’re essentially French-style donuts (without holes) liberally dusted with powdered sugar. As for where to find the city’s best?

A solid place to start is Café du Monde. Situated in the heart of the always lively French Quarter, this mainstay has been turning out piping hot, square-shaped beignets since 1862. With several locations throughout the French Quarter, Cafe Beignet keeps everything sweet and simple with their chewy, made-to-order versions. (Pairing them with a mug of the house chicory coffee is a must.) In the mood to sample something a bit different? Then head uptown to the Garden District to LUCA eats for the best selling (and award winning) Oreo beignets.
