A beignet, which is French for "fried dough" in the U.S. is a pastry made from deep-fried dough, much like a doughnut, and sprinkled with confectioner's sugar, or frostings. Versions of beignets are also popular as an appetizer, with fillings such as maple or fruit preserves.

I had French toast. Yummy. I had donuts. Really yummy! These donuts are so light and heavenly...some of the lightest cake donuts we have sampled. I tried a plain cake donut and a glazed donut stick. The cake donut didn’t take forever to chew or feel heavy in my mouth and was perfect for dunking. The glazed donut stick was melt in your mouth delicious! I arrived at the shop later in the morning so I didn’t have an opportunity to try any other flavors. Or so I thought!
The whole feel of the shop made the experience so great. Everyone knew everyone else and although we were “outsiders” we were welcomed with open arms and served with a smile. Even after eating all those delicious carbs, I left feeling chipper and light and ready for a great day!
