Let’s Take a Tour of Scat Cat’s Club Cafe at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort


Back in the fall of 2019, Scat Cat's Club at Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter received a makeover. Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory's famous beignets moved to a new home, just next-door, into the refurbished space. Let's take a virtual tour!

The interior space of Scat Cat's Club Cafe is dedicated to all things beignets. In addition to beignets, guests also have the chance to purchase a Port Orleans French Quarter-branded t-shirt (yep, I had to get that one), as well as a coffee mug. Having these merchandise items available for purchase is a welcome thing for those of us who enjoy resort-specific souvenirs.

The cafe is spacious, and provides plenty of seating both inside the space and outside in the area just off of the resort's main lobby.

A condiment bar is located in the back of the cafe for those wishing to enjoy a cup of coffee along with their beignets. Joffrey's Chicory coffee is also available for those who would like an authentic taste of New Orleans.

Guests have their choices when it comes to the resort's premier desert, from 3 beignets for $4.99 to a Mickey-shaped Beignet Sundae featuring 3 beignets, the ice cream flavor of your choice, whipped topping and sauce for $6.99.

Beignets with pipettes filled with alcohol are available for the grownups in your group. Beignets in specialty flavors like raspberry, cinnamon-sugar, and chocolate are also available for $2.99 each. Dipping sauces are available in strawberry, chicory chocolate ganache, and salted caramel for $1.99 each.

The Mickey-shaped Beignet Sundae was good, and incredibly filling. Bring a friend or two with you if you decide to order the sundae, and don't wear something that you hold especially dear. Those glorious mounds of powdered sugar float everywhere and will cover the table in no time flat.

A few years back, the beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter took on a Mickey shape, and, when they did, the recipe was changed. The beignets now resemble a yeast doughnut, and are less hollow than they were before. I'm someone who prefers more of a yeast-less choux dough beignet, but that's just a personal preference. This sundae would be a perfect sweet treat for the whole family after a long day of park hopping.

Are Mickey beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter on your must-eat list for your next Walt Disney World vacation? What's your favorite sweet treat at Scat Cat's Club Cafe? Let me know in the comments section below.
