This past year, Cafe Beignet celebrated their 30th anniversary and we are thrilled to announce that a new location has opened! The restaurant, located at 622 Canal Street, opened on Friday, October 9, 2020.

Previously, the first floor housed PJ’s Coffee and the Art of Shaving. The space has been renovated to combine the two and sits between the JW Marriott Hotel and Rubenstein’s. Built in the 1800s, the building displays a beautiful, cast-iron facade that has been preserved.

“With front facing windows and outdoor patio, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the city’s bustling activity and passing streetcars,” says Donna Shay, General Manager.

Cafe Beignet on Canal will serve breakfast, lunch, and fresh beignets all day and will be open Fridays-Mondays from 8am-4pm.

Since COVID-19, Café Beignet has been able to reopen three other locations in the French Quarter: 311 Bourbon Street, 334 Royal Street, and 600 Decatur Street. Live jazz is available at Bourbon from 5:00pm-10:45pm. For more information about Café Beignet, please visit or call 504-500-4370.

Café Beignet is a cup full of New Orleans’ best European traditions that feeds all the senses: where music and cuisine are the heartbeat of New Orleans. Each location offers something unique to its visitors, including live jazz, cocktails, outdoor seating (with pet friendly areas), and classic New Orleans dishes to complement our beignets. Customers have the option of a grand café setting both outside and in. Please visit for more information.
