I ordered the Big Boy's Plater ($7.49): the three eggs were perfectly prepared (medium over), the bacon was crispy, and the sausages had a nice taste. I had substituted the hash browns for wheat toast, which was basic but thick, and had chosen the banana pecan nut pancakes, which were thick and fluffy and not too dry. M ordered the Vegetable Omelette ($6.99) and added regular pancakes for a small additional fee. Both were much appreciated.

To play it safe, I ordered the Tenderloin Sandwich ($6) with steak fries ($3). The tenderloin was big, breaded, fried... and fairly tasteless. It came on a bun with lettuce, tomato, onion, and a lot of mayo. Greasy but bland. The fries came straight from Wal-Mart and were undercooked. Gross!
I opted for the Original Burger ($8.95) and added candied jalapenos (+$.99), crispy Cahuna bacon (+$1.79), Cahuna sausage, and creole BBQ sauce. The thick and juicy burger comes on a good bread bun. Mixed with the sweet bacon and meaty sausage tastes and a kick of the BBQ sauce and jalapenos: absolutely delicious! As a side I had the Slaw Louise, which is made with vinegar instead of mayo. Very light, very fresh, very good! My wife had the Alligator & Crab Cake Burger ($10.99), which tasted a bit like the perfect crab cake; creamy, meaty, crspy on the outside. The added candied jalapenos (+$0.99) gave it extra flavor.
Café Beignet is a cute little café in the heart of the French Quarter serving coffee, sandwiches, and… beignets. Even out of season the place was packed with tourists.
While the beignets are much bigger than at Café du Monde, they have none of the flavor. Clearly not the place to eat beignets in New Orleans.
