Crescent City Beignets - Closed

3260 Westheimer Houston, TX 77098 | Lower Shepherd-Kirby | 713-520-8291

Location Description:

Except for the updated accents, this coffeehouse looks like a New Orleans original, with exposed brick walls, black-and-white photography and zydeco music in the background. The specialty here is, of course, beignets, which are as hot and fluffy as you remember them at Cafe du Monde. The house beverage, café au lait, is a vacation in a cup, but we recommend another treat: granitas, akin to frozen coffee smoothies. Crescent City also serves Cajun/Creole entrées.
