Jet Blue Park in Ft Myers - http://www.naplesnews.com/photos/galleries/2012/mar/16/dutchkins-jetblue-park/
Nola Café and Newstand, 301 W Platt St #C, Tampa, FL
Nola Café, 300 Beach Dr NE, St Petersburg, FL
Jacksonville and Orlando have some cafes that have them as well.

You could also make your own. There are a lot of recipes online.

I'm too lazy to make 'em. I was hoping there was a place around here that had them. I had them once. That was in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. Stopped for gas and they had a little coffee shop attached. Went in for coffee and a donut. That's where I had my one and only beignet. They are better than any donut.

I don't think I have ever had one. I wonder if the Amish Bakery on Bayshore Rd makes them? Most places that have them are cafe's or bakeries. There aren't a lot of bakeries around here like we had in NY.

LOL..........you're right. I hadn't thought about it ,but there are no bakeries down here like up north. Every town has at least one bakery.

What I do miss down here are DINERS. They were always a great place to go for soup up to a full course dinner. AND....the endless cup of java .

Yeah, my boyfriend only likes 2 breakfast places here. He misses his favorite Diner in NY. Every time we go back up he wants to eat breakfast there every day and he would eat lunch there every day too if I let him.

I wish I could run to the bakery and get some fresh homemade Italian bread, some brownies with frosting and walnuts, some almond cookies, and some half moons (black and whites). Just can't find them here either, like your beignets. Let me know if you find a good bakery or nice cafe to go to.

I'm not sure exactly what a Beignet is. All I know is, they are gooooood !!!

Obviously the name is French. And there is a place in New Orleans that specializes in them. Every time they do a documentry on N.O., they show people eating at this cafe.

SUBWAY has great italian rolls. They are nice and soft for hoagies.

DINERS...........they all know how to make great cream chip beef/SOS/**** on a shingle

Not sure how they make beignets, but they're like a cross between a doughnut and an unfilled cream puff - how could it get any better? The place in NO you're thinking of is Café du Monde.
