I recently heard about this new beignet shop and had to try it out for myself. I'm a big fan of those lovely powder covered French pastries and there was no great beignet and hot chocolate shop on my side of town until this great new shop opened. It's a small place snuggled up next to Maxwell's Market in the all new shopping center there on Highland.(I really need to catch the name of that center) Luckily Rue Beignet didn't disappoint. They're beignets were great and the hot chocolate was delicious.
It's locally owned and operated by a really nice lady who's extremely baby friendly mother spent a deal of time entertaining my daughter. Based on my 20 minutes or so hanging out at Rue Beignet I can tell you it's a great place owned by a good person from a good family. They were very nice people who made me feel at home in their shop. You can tell it was decorated with the love of someone who's going to put their best in to their business. Situated near lots of good restaurants like Ruffino's, Amphorae and Hello Sushi it's a great option for some post dinner coffee and pastries. I'll regularly be stopping there for my beignet fix.
