Disneyland Duel: Battle of the Beignets!

One of the quintessential Disneyland must-eats are the beignets! You can find ‘em at a couple of locations around the Happiest Place on Earth, and there is definitely a difference of opinion on which version is best.

Cafe Orleans in Disneyland Park is probably my all-time favorite spot to enjoy Beignets. And there are lots of reasons for that.

Inside, you’re surrounded by rich colors, beautiful stained glass, and Disney history — the spot houses an espresso machine that was a favorite of Walt Disney himself! And the outside patio offers great people watching and a good vantage point to enjoy beautiful New Orleans Square.

Here there’s not one, but two — Vanilla Creme Anglaise and Raspberry Coulis. My favorite is the raspberry — combined with the beignets, it’s like eating a jelly donut!
