Just off the BeltLine in the Irwin Street Market, Yay Beignet is the perfect low-key cafe to hit after a walk. There are just a few plastic tablecloth-covered tables. But once seated, the smoky aroma of NOLA-inspired dishes will make you want real food before you dive into beignets. There are a handful of breakfast and lunch options like the solid cajun chicken biscuit or the cajun chicken po’boy that would have been helped by adding another chicken patty to balance out the big portion of bread. The watered-down grits are an inexcusable Southern sin, but the real deal here is dessert: regular- and bite-sized beignets plastered with powdered sugar and accompanied with chocolate, caramel, or raspberry sauce options.
