Beignets in MSP??

With New Orleans and Mardi Gras in the news recently, it got me seriously craving great, fresh beignets. Any recommendations in the Twin Cities area?

Thank you!

  1. I'm afraid you aren't going to find what you're looking for outside of New Orleans. But you can make them. Cafe du Monde sells the mix online at

    Only $2.45 for a 28 ounce box. And you can get French Market coffee at Cub or Kowalskis, so you can complete the experience :)

    1. Now thats a bit of an exaggeration. So it happens I had wonderful Beignets in Boulder, CO the other week and in many other places I've lived around the country. Unfortunately I have not seen any in the twin cities yet. Let me know if you find any.

      1. Rumor has it that the Good Day Cafe has beignets on the menu. Has anyone tried them yet?

          We had breakfast there, and can confirm that they are on the menu - but we did not try them.
