Well, look no further, BONJOUR CAFE in the Post Mall located at 1201 Boston Post Road, in Milford, Connecticut has been rumored to have the BEST beignets in the state.

A beignet is a deep-fried pastry, also known as a "fritter" that is made from pâte à choux and called pets-de-nonne, which means "nun's fart" in French. It can also be made from a variety of other types of dough as well. In France, there are at least twenty different versions of beignets. They also vary in shape and size. They can be made with different types of flour to make the dough, and/ or different fillings can be used as well. They are very popular in Europe, specifically in French and Italian households.

According to Explore Louisiana "Louisiana is so proud of this sweet pastry that in 1986 the legislature voted the beignet the official state donut. A simple treat made of a square piece of fried dough, the beignet has long been jump-starting French Quarter workers who head to Café Du Monde for an order of three and a side of café au lait. Beignets there and at nearby Café Beignet are served with ample sprinklings of powdered sugar, though you’ll also find savory beignets at Creole restaurants in New Orleans. Outside the Crescent City, satisfy your beignet cravings at Marilynn’s Place in Shreveport, and at Coffee Call in Baton Rouge."
