BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A debate over beignets is heating up! According to the Food and Wine magazine, the best beignets can be found, not in New Orleans, but actually in Baton Rouge.
Coffee Call on College Drive boasts the best beignets, even over Cafe Du Monde and Morning Call in the New Orleans area.
The magazine says the perfect sugar coating and "nice bit of chew" puts Coffee Call's beignets at the top of the list.
According to WAFB, they were able to talk to someone who works at Coffee Call who said that there is no debate; they are the best.
"It feels good we are the original and probably the only place left that actually does everything by hand, we cut it out by hand we roll it by hand we make the dough to order and plus we have a great group of regulars a great crew and definitely think we deserve it," said one Coffee Call worker.
WAFB put out a question on their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages. According to them, they got a lot of yeses, so apparently, a good audience of people agree with the report.
