- $12 for four Groupons, each good for $5 worth of beignets and coffee ($20 value)
Travelers to New Orleans's French Quarter often return home with tales of the local cafés' beignets. These fluffy, fried confections are traditionally dusted with a generous helping of powdered sugar and flanked by a steaming cup of cafe au lait. Using the Big Easy as inspiration, Rue Beignet fries up its own batches of the pillowy treat, drizzling them with such toppings as chocolate, honey, and caramel. Visitors can enjoy their treats at the long, diner-style bar or at intimate tables whilst sipping hot or cold java.
