Beignets in Seattle: Louisiana’s Official State Doughnut Meets Seattle

Want to know where to find a beignet in Seattle? We’ve got them…good ones even. These pillows of fried, sugary goodness have been compared to a classic beignet you would get from the one and only ‘Café Du Monde’ in New Orleans. Introducing beignets from Toulouse Petit…it’s about time Seattle!

For those Seattlites out there who have no idea what I’, close your eyes and place yourself in a café in the French Quarter. Listen to the soothing saxophone as you inhale slowly. Smell the comfort…the sweet and savory New Orleans delicacy that is the beignet. Golden crispy on the outside and tender in the middle, these powdered sugar-dusted delights instantly melt in your mouth. For those of you who have never experienced such elegance, think of an elephant ear at a carnival, a sopapilla at a Mexican restaurant, a funnel cake at a fair. Take that light pastry concept, add a little fluff, a lot of perfection, and…Voila!
Paired with Toulouse Petit’s chicory anglaise, a coffee infused cream for dipping; this dessert is truly a treat. Order it with a cup of Fonte French Press coffee to add a little Northwest buzz to your New Orleans experience.
