Anyone that lives in or around New Iberia will agree Meches is the Best. Hot fresh donuts made from scratch each morning. King cakes, fritters, clean donuts and many more treats that are simply scrumptious. If you are looking to satisfy the sweet tooth then this is the place. It gets better every time I visit.

See above. Very friendly staff. I mostly have the glazed donuts, but have had the chocolate covered and was equally impressed. Great tradition.

Whew lawd! Ok, here goes...CULINARY WARNING!!! This place is HIGHLY addictive! Can and WILL create palatable emotions such as "withdrawals," :after closing stalker tendencies," "repeated, incessant phone calls on only known closed day of operation - MONDAYS, in total disbelief," etc. Meche's, is both a blessing AND a curse - in THE most unimaginable way you will ever experience.

I stopped by this morning because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed. Arguably the best dang donut twist I've had in a long while. Way better than Krispy Creme or Dunkin' Donuts. Easily on par with some of the hoity toity artisanl donuts you get in Seattle, for a much better price.

This is the mom and pop location of arguably the Best donuts in America. Unassuming location and decor - you're here for pastries remember. Is usually closed by noon or so. This is your AM donut fix spot. Enjoy...
