Now Open at Urban Eats!
We’re open at the Urban Eats Neighborhood Food Hall!
Beignet All Day’s new brick-and-mortar location is located at 3301 Meramec Street in Downtown Dutchtown. We’ve been using Urban Eats’ kitchen incubator as our commissary since we started, and now we’ve got our own spot in the Food Hall alongside other great vendors like Tacos La Jefa, Sugoi Sushi, All Rolled Up, and Crepes and Treats.

What’s a Beignet?
Beignets can most simply be described as French doughnuts. Beignets are made with a yeasted, sweetened dough that, after being allowed to rise, is cut into squares, fried, and liberally doused in powdered sugar. They are light, airy, pillowy pastries.

Brought across the Atlantic Ocean from France during colonial times, beignets were made famous in New Orleans by Cafe du Monde, which has been open since the mid-19th century. Traditionally served with powdered sugar and occasionally accompanied by various toppings, these treats are a staple of Cajun and Creole culinary culture.
At Beignet All Day, we put our own spin on our hand-made beignets, offering both sweet and savory toppings for every taste. Our dough is made fresh and fried fresh.
It all started with a family trip over winter break in 2021 to New Orleans. Joe, a self-proclaimed doughnut connoisseur, was introduced to the “French doughnut,” AKA the beignet. Fast forward to early 2022, back in St. Louis, Joe can’t stop thinking about the tasty treat and begins to research how to bring beignets home to St. Louis. Joe began creating a unique special beignet recipe, and the frying began!
After testing and refining his original recipe, Beignet All Day was launched in May 2022. Beignet All Day’s tagline, “New Orleans treat with a St. Louis twist,” brought Joe’s beignet recipes to the people of St. Louis. The “St. Louis twists” are the numerous toppings offered, along with unique savory beignets.
Throughout the rest of 2022, Beignet All Day had a presence at the Kirkwood Farmers’ Market and Tower Grove Farmers’ Market and participated in private events across the St. Louis area.
In early 2023, an opportunity to open up a storefront in the Urban Eats Neighborhood Food Hall presented itself. On February 1st, Beignet All Day opened the doors to our first brick-and-mortar space in Downtown Dutchtown, serving hot, fresh beignets and chicory coffee.
