Cafe Beignet, a French Quarter-based coffee shop, is scheduled to open a location on Canal Street Oct. 9.

The coffee shop, its fourth location, will open at 622 Canal St., according to the company’s website. The address is the former location of PJ’s Coffee.

The cafe opened in 1990 and expanded to four locations in the French Quarter, including the Old Coffee Pot located at 714 St. Peter St.

Cafe Beignet recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of its first location at 334 Royal St. (next to the New Orleans Police station).

The Old Coffee Pot returns as Cafe Beignet in the French Quarter
