The best dobash and petifor cakes!

We have been traveling to New Orleans for over 13 years to see family and a visit is not complete without going to Haydel's Bakery! The cakes literally melt in our mouths and they are incredibly hard to resist. You have to get the birthday cake petifor's and the dobash cakes in chocolate. They have... read more

Haydel's is a staple in my area....their King cakes and Cajun Kringles are so addictive!!! Theirs are the King cakes that I send my friends out of state! And the Kringles are my Christmas gifts of choice. The pastries are fresh and flaky and their turtles are so good once you start you can't stop. They do a lot of... More

I ordered a large king cake from Haydel's Bakery on a Friday morning and paid $12.50 for next day air delivery to Baytown, TX. According to an email from them, the order wasn't shipped out until 4pm the next day! The king cake first went to Jackson, MS, then to Louisville, KY, then to Dallas, TX, then down to Houston,...

I have mailordered Haydel's King Cakes for years, but a recent trip to Louisiana provided the opportunity to go there in person. We showed up after lunch looking for some dessert. Too many choices to just get one thing! I got a vanilla Napoleon, which was really tasty, but hard to eat with a plastic fork, and too big to... More

If you want some good pastry, this is the place. You have to go early, because they close early. We get our donuts and pies early for any event we are planning. I myself can eat 3 cake donuts along. Everytime you go there they fresh pastry. There are always a lot of people getting their pastry. We have found... More

A visit to Haydel's Bakery is always on the agenda when visiting home- the New Orleans area. Haydel's is located in a NOLA suburb in Jefferson on Jefferson Hwy about a mile or so east of Clearview Parkway, A kid and adult favorite is the petit fours. They also have wonderful cinnamon rolls. And also offer a wide assortment of... More

Best praline cheesecake around! It is a bit of a drive but once you are outside the door the smell is intoxicating! Grab one of their handmade soy candles too while you are there and a slice of king cake!

We went there for a cake. Got cake and pie. Their donuts don't take second place either. This is a a place we don't go to every day, because we consider this a treat. I love this place. A staple for Louisiana.

I've ordered king cakes from Haydels and have never been disappointed. Because everything about my destination wedding in New Orleans was unique and culturally relevant to my roots, I opted for a king cake in lieu of a traditional white fancy cake. The ease in ordering from a distance was spectacular. It was easy to reach someone via phone or... More
