Beignets are on the menu at both Nicas 320 and Beignet.

A few treats from the South have arrived for your mouth. Beignet opened Saturday in the City Market at 307 Main Street. This is the second restaurant from Bryan and Monica Merker, who opened Nica's 320 (320 Southwest Boulevard) in the Crossroads in August 2011. And just like in the French Quarter, breakfast is an all day affair.

Merker is hoping to sweeten up your morning.

And while Nica's celebrates culinary influences from across the globe (read The Pitch's three-part interview with chef Merker here), including Cajun cuisine and beignets that would be at home in the French Quarter, the new City Market eatery is focused on the "New Orleans style French donuts."

The menu has beignets and crepes that range from sweet (Bavarian cream, brie and apple) to savory (the Bourgeois Pig with cheddar, carmelized onions, smoked bacon) and cornbread pancakes. (The whole menu is available online.) You can wash it down with either Louisiana sweet tea or chicory-spiced coffee.

Beignet is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
