Our Next Beignet Sunday
Beignet Sunday will take place February 16, 2020
One Sunday each month, we make fresh beignets 9am ’til 11am, or until the dough runs out, whichever comes first. Beignets can be ordered in sets of 3 for $4.13 per set.
Order your beignets inside the bakery at our retail counter or, if you are dining in, from your server. We no longer take beignet orders out on the sidewalk in front of the bakery; we hope this will make for a better Beignet Sunday experience for all.
**If you take beignets “to-go”, please do not close the lid of your to-go box, as this will trap moisture and make the beignets tough and chewy. Beignets are best eaten soon after coming out of the fryer; they simply won’t be as tasty if they sit for an hour or two.
Beignets (pronounced ben-YAY) are the official state doughnut of Louisiana. They were brought to the region by French settlers known as Acadians. Traditional beignets are made from a pastry dough called ‘choux’, which puffs from the power of its own steam in our donut fryer. Today, beignets are most often associated with the French Quarter of New Orleans.
Start your Sunday the Beignet Way…at the baking company!
