No.

I suppose if you don't like them, their appeal can't be explained to you.

But I love them. By far my favorite sweet pastry. Especially with hot chocolate (not coffee for me although I can understand that for serious coffee drinkers).

Great stuff!!! Makes me want to go back, though I always want to go back there - to the point I actually got married in NOLA a few months ago (complete with brass band).

I spot Mimi's in one of the pics, taken from what looks to be the cafe across the street. Spent many a hazy night or afternoon there... Did you make it out to Bywater at all?

Who can explain that je ne sais quoi of the perfect beignet?

I like them with a coffee granita.
