Snack Series: Beignets at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Express

I have been promising myself — and you guys! — that I’d get back to Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Express for a while now. And today is the day!

Sign at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen Express

Located adjacent to the main Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen table service restaurant in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District, this counter service spot serves up some great, quick options.

We showed you the icy Sno-Balls last year, and now it’s time to share the most prized (in my opinion) option on the menu!

Atmosphere

The Express location of Ralph Brennan’s offers the same New Orleans vintage vibe as the table service restaurant, but with no indoor seating. This is strictly and “order it to-go” kinda place, though there are several tables outside.

One cool feature, though: see that area behind the glass? It’s actually an “on stage” area where employees are making beignets!

Inside Jazz Kitchen Express

After you taste a beignet from here, you’re pretty much guaranteed to want to duplicate the magic at home (or at least try). For the adventurous, Cafe Du Monde Beignet Mix is sold here as well.
