I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw this place, you just don't expect to see a place like this outside of the New Orleans area. Ever since then I have come here at least once a month, sometimes more often, to get my beignet fix.

I have deep roots in New Orleans and I believe that this establishment has the somereally, really good Beignets. I found this place in passing and I stopped by for the first time yesterday. As mentioned, the Beignets are good but the customer service is horrible. It seemed as if the lady taking orders didnt want to be there thus made me not want to be there. When I asked for something in addition to my beignets, it was like a chore for the lady to get it for me and then she had an attitude. Its almost as if it was painful for her to provider service. I would definatly want to recommend this place for their beignets, but i would not recommend this place to anybody due to the lack of customer service.

My family, friends and I have enjoyed going to Crescent City Beignets for years. The beignets are delicious and a fun end to an evening.

However, the service has gone down tremendously. We go between 9-10 pm (1-2 hours before closing) and the staff is clearly doing everything possible to push out all the customers to close early. They refuse to clean any tables and the trash cans over-flow. All the back tables have chairs stacked on top to prevent customers from using them.The staff is extremely grumpy and refuses to brew coffee past 9.

We even attempted to eat there tonight and they were completely out of ice and were utterly adverse to turning the ice-maker back on.

Its a shame that one of our favorite places has become so miserable to patronize. I wonder where the owner has gone that they'd let the restaurant die?

The beignets are great. As good as in my hometown of New Orleans. But the place is almost always filthy. I went in last Thursday night at 9:50 (it closes at 11) and not one table was clean. In the front, the stools were up on the counter giving the impression from outside that the place was closed. No doubt that's what the employees wanted to convey as they were clearly not happy about getting more customers. The guy at the cash register never speaks, never smiles. Where are the owners of this franchise? What a shame. But if you want great beignets, this is the place. Just go in the daytime. That staff is considerably better.

Pros: Beignets

Cons: Everything else

I have a lot of good memories of Beignets. My dad made business trips to New Orleans when I was a kid so I had them then, and then went a few years back and had some at Cafe du Monde. Love them! So in stopping at Crescent City I knew there was a good chance they wouldn't live up to my memories. But, surprise, they weren't too far off. I got an order of three, not expecting them to be quite as big as they were, and really enjoyed them. Hot. Very hot (as they should be.) They tasted great and were nice and fluffy. They do have other food items on the menu I noticed but i'll sample them next time. They smelled tasty though. Now being a coffee bean junkie I was eager to try their coffee. For me the coffee ruined the entire experience and is the reason for only two stars. It was just horrible. Honestly it was just a small step above gas station coffee, and that stuff is about as bad as you can get.
Apart from the coffee fiasco the place is nice and clean and the cashier seemed to be nice. I'd go back but only for the Beignets.

A taste of New Orleans in Houston! Wonderful, fluffy beignets done just right! Can be ordered in threes, but three just does not seem to be enough! Accessible location if you live inside the loop.

I went to Crescent City Beignets with high expectations. My friend told me that it was the place to get the best beignets. The place itself is a hole-in-the wall. The floor and air in the place is dingy. The food is ok. I ordered the breakfast croissant it was so-so. The beignet strips were ok, they tasted like the funnel cake at the rodeo. The service was ok, we waited 20 minutes for 4 beignet strips! Definitely not impressed. If you are looking for a great breakfast try somewhere else!

I was so happy to find this place being a displaced Cajun (happy to be in Texas though!). The beignets bring me back to my days at LSU where my friends and I hung out at Coffee Call for beignets and the ever needed cafe au lait.

The gumbo has on and off days (don't know why). Sometimes it's right on and sometimes not (too spicy or not enough spice or even once, didn't taste fresh). It's consistent enough for me to keep ordering it.

The only drawback that I see is the service. It's horrid. The ladies behind the counter must hate people in general and must hate working there in particular. Thankfully I've never been personally insulted but I've been there when other customers have been - even verbally abused! Not favorable for that reason alone.

Get your food to go and get out of there is my best advice.

Pros: The food is great - the beignets make me homesick

Cons: Service is beyond awful

I ordered the seafood gumbo for this first time. I am a cajun from Lousisana and can personally tell you that this is not what gumbo suppose to taste like. It was so peppery that I could not taste the gumbo and spent most of my meal drinking water to cool down my mouth. This is NOT a good seafood gumbo. And the price ? Over $10 ! Never again. If you haven't eaten their gumbo yet, I suggest you try a sample first and save your money - just step next door to Subway and get a decent meal for the money.

The cafe my colleague and I visited this morning, May 2, 2007, was Crescent City Beignet located at 3260 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77098.
Shortly after placing & receiving my order, I noticed that my order was incorrect. My colleague offered to speak with the cashier/server in order to receive the right items we requested. The cashier/server then verbally abused my colleague, the manager approached us by yelling. Without even asking what happened, and as we were turning to leave, the manager yelled at us & asked us to leave. She told us to wait outside for her to return the money we paid for breakfast. The manager even had a patron, presumably an acquaintance of hers, physically threaten my colleague. The manager, of course, asked us to never return. Obviously, I would never return to such an establishment.
For this reason, i would never recommend this establishment to anyone.

Strangely enough, I have been all over Houston to many restaurants, cafes, and businesses, but I had not tried Crescent City Beignet until this morning. It started with a friendly rendezvous with a friend, and when I approached the counter to seek help in my order, I was verbally abused by the cashier/server, threatened by what appeared to be a patron and friend of the manager, and treated with the utmost disrespect by the manager. Swiftly, as I had turned my back to leave, the manager had already begun to yell at me and threaten me to never return. Me not returning is the obvious factor. Seated closely to Lamar High School, my guess is the establishment does not know how to treat professional adults. The manager even insulted the type of vehicle I was driving as "not even expensive." I find it difficult to see what this has to do with professionalism or my patronage. The cafe was reported to the a business bureau this morning, and I am working on locating the owner of the establishment. I believe businesses deserve a 2nd chance, but the owner/manager needs to be aware of the less than courteous service. Patrons beware.

I have only one thing to say about Crescent City Beignets - Yummy! The first one I went to was located on Fountainview and San Felipe. The atmosphere was nice and the beignets were just as good as the ones you find in New Orleans. I would love to buy stock into this coffee establishment where the cafe au laits are perfectly made and the beignets are always hot and fresh.

We lost a Crescent City Beignets in the Galleria area so I have to drive inside the loop when I get a craving for the beignets. Well worth the trip.
Always consistent and good.
No place else like it in town.
