Beignet

More often than not I find myself at this small location within the Kansas City River Market, or dreaming fondly of their delicious goodies.

Beignet (pronounced ben ˈ yā) is an establishment that provides a little variation to the Market with its apparent French influence. Beignet is the ultimate satisfaction to your week and can singlehandedly put a halt to all efforts of healthy eating.  And it’s well worth it.

Beignet’s offerings include savory variations, which are more for a meal and sweet variations more for dessert.

Naturally I have always been drawn to the sweet options.  My favorite is the chocolate raspberry beignet.  Filled with warm melted chocolate, fresh raspberries and covered in powdered sugar, I am not exaggerating when I say it is dream-worthy.

Beignet also provides another delicious French classic, crepes.  Other options on the menu include macaroni, grits and creoles.

The market brings a lot of traffic during the warmer months for its atmosphere and fresh produce, but no matter the season Beignet is always open, which can be dangerous but comforting at the same time.

I would give Beignet a 10 out of 10.  Unique and delicious you must add it to your list!
