The mean-field model of optical bistability in a ring cavity is extended to include diffraction in two transverse dimensions. Nonlinear analysis in the neighborhood of the instability of the homogeneous solution indicates the formation of stable hexagonal patterns, and this is confirmed by numerical simulation, with reasonable quantitative agreement. Simulations with higher excitation show defect structures and complex dynamical patterns.
