Lou Lou's Beignets - Now Open in The Woodlands
Written by Karen Logan   
Fifteen years ago, I didn't even know how to pronounce the word "beignet", but now, they're one of my favorite desserts. Actually, there's nothing even remotely extraordinary about the taste of this square-shaped, deep-fried pastry usually served drenched in powdered sugar, but there's a  coffeeshop novelty about the entire beignet-eating experience that makes it worthy of repetition.  
 
We recently tried Lou Lou's Beignet's on Research Forest in the Village of Alden Bridge, and our experience was pretty good. My husband was born and raised in New Orleans (home of the world famous beignets of Cafe du Monde), so for us, the bar was  set pretty high.

Lou Lou's beignets were served hot and fresh, and my daughters thought they were really good. They were a bit dense for my taste; they seemed thicker and drier than what I get elsewhere, but I really appreciated that you can add one of the house made dipping sauces to your order - chocolate, caramel, or strawberry. I decided to try all 3, and they were all really yummy and the perfect addition to the beignets. Additionally, my husband ordered a Cafe au Lait (French for "coffee with milk"), and he marveled at its tastiness. So I'd say Lou Lou's is a winner!


The bakery  itself is rather small and quaint, with seating indoors and out. No frills, just quick, pleasant service and a simple menu (beignet and bevs). I'd recommend it for a late evening treat for the family when you have time to just sit and shoot the breeze. Enjoy!
