Great shrimp quesadilla

Yes, the quesadilla is superb! The cakes are great too... But go for lunch! However, don't go if you are in a hurry. The kitchen takes awhile, especially if it's busy. I was unexpectedly surprised by the deliciousness of the shrimp quesadilla- now it is a must when I go! The employees are pretty... read more

This is my second time to stop here for the strawberry cake. It is the best strawberry cake that I've ever had. It is not too sweet and very moist. The best ever!!

We went ambrosia for a king cake. It was our first time there and the ambiance was amazing! The lighting was romantic, and the displays were beautiful. It was our first time purchasing a king cake from ambrosia, and it was great! We went on lundi gras and it was busy, they had stopped baking king cakes to put out... More

Ordered two wedding cakes (bride and groom) and both decorated incorrectly. I failed to say anything at pickup for these three reasons: Traffic in store was extremely busy due to Mardi Gras, didn't want to make a scene in store, and most importantly, I had a wedding in two hours and needed cakes for the bride and groom. So, immediately... More

We were in Baton Rouge during Mardis Gras and we did a little research on where to get a King Cake to take back home. We wound up at here and it was worth the effort. We got a piece of strawberry cake that was outstanding and ate some of the King Cake two days later. It was excellent as... More

One of the famous places to get your king cakes in Baton Rouge. You can't and won't go through Mardi Gras without hearing Ambrosia! When you step into the bakery, the warm and aroma with the colorful icing and sweet fillings are sure to appease the senses! We tried the Strawberry filled king cake,but I wish we would have tried...

This bakery is the best in Baton Rouge. It's well worth the drive to find parking & go in. Guarantee you won't go back to car empty handed. Can't go wrong here everything made there is delicious!

I was thoroughly impressed with their King Cakes last Mardi Gras! I couldn't stop eating it until it was gone. I say they're the best in BR, but it might just be the best I've ever had anywhere. You get your money's worth here!

Bailey, Thank you very much for the great review! Our King Cakes are all made by hand one at a time and we work real hard to produce the best product we can to offer to our customers. We do bake them year round and ship them too! Most other bakeries don't offer this. Thanks again! The Ambrosia Bakery More

This was such a great find for us. We were in town for a friends wedding and just happened to pass by this place right on our way there. When you go into the place the smell is so great. And the selection of pastries was amazing. There were so many options and we wanted to try them all. I... More

I love their strawberry cake. This bakery has such a great variety. They will no doubt have any pastry you could want. Recently I went there just for breakfast and the options are a bit more limited. I would definitely suggest the cinnamon rolls, though.
