Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez… or Let the Good Times Roll! If you’ve ever heard of Mardi Gras, chances are you think of New Orleans. No doubt, the Big Easy has a strong carnival tradition; Mobile, Alabama does too. But the Mississippi Gulf Coast is no stranger to Mardi Gras celebrations.

Located in an old library that has been designated as a Mississippi Landmark and holds a place on the National Register of Historical Places, Le Cafe’ Beignet is the place to go to find delicious made-to-order from scratch beignets, as well as an eclectic menu of other delightful dishes. Restaurateur and Owner of Le Cafe’ Beignet, Sita La’Cap, was raised in Biloxi. After spending many years working in the banking industry in Orlando, FL, she returned to her hometown with a desire to create an iconic restaurant around her great-grandmother’s beignet recipe. After successfully opening a charming shabby chic café two blocks away on Rue Magnolia, she recently moved the business to the much more prominent location in the historic two-story stucco building at the corner of Lameuse and Water street.
