It may not feel exactly like the famous Café du Monde in New Orleans, but this unassuming little eatery in Surprise serves up some seriously delicious beignets worth the gas money to get there for. Available only on Sunday (the one day of the week the restaurant serves its stellar breakfast), this trio of fat French fritters, popular within New Orleans Creole cuisine, arrive fresh and hot, sweet and crispy, and coated in a snowfall's worth of powdered sugar you can't wait to leave your mark in.

Those eating vegan are most likely familiar with Marlene and Cassie Tolman's cheery little eatery in Ahwatukee. And if Marlene happens to have made a fresh batch of vegan fritters that morning, most of them know to get there early before they disappear. Made with zero corn and using all-natural ingredients, these vegan delights are scratch-made fresh and come in a variety of flavors and tastes. Perfect for the fall season.

Pizza and a pastry or two? It can happen at this beauty-parlor-turned pizzeria in Central Phoenix. After a stellar pie, don't miss the Italian delicacy known as the zeppole. Depending on the season, the light, deep-fried dough balls (rolled in sugar for a bit of crunch) can be made with ingredients like mixed berries, cherries, and sweet corn. And dipping sauces like lemon poppy jam, butterscotch, and Maker's Mark bourbon mascarpone, make this treat all the sweeter.

Thanks for the mention! The doughnuts right now at Cowboy Ciao are lemon with lemon chiffon ice cream, crème anglaise, and blueberry balsamic compote. But hurry! They are coming off the menu next week and being replaced with Fry Bread with honey semifreddo.
