Nice coffee shop

Lots of yummy desserts and delicious coffee. I recently tried the praline king cake and I was very disappointed. It was dry and didn't have much flavor. I haven't tried your original king cake, I sure hope it's better than the praline. The best King Cake I had was from Gambino's bakery in New... read more

The Cakes and deserts are great the coffee is fantastic, great atmosphere. Just one issue........ it is expensive for a big city like Houston in the city center it might be OK. But in the small city of Beaumont its a bit high. If your watching your figure, best leave alone....lol

Went here several times during a business trip. Had the coffee, tasted good, even better espresso drinks. The King Cake was very good, and fun with the little gold baby in it. They had some frosted cookies in Mardi Gras colors that I ate way too fast, wish I had some more!

Rao's Bakery on Calder is a great breakfast stop as well as one of the best bakeries in Beaumont. I enjoy stopping for a Cafe Latte in the morning and grabbing a chicken salad cup or garden salad for lunch later. Wonderful service! Quick stop!

What a delightful bakery with such tremendous pastries that I think I put on another two pounds just looking at the goodies. We read about the place on Trip Advisor and decided to go here for breakfast rather than eat at the hotel. If you are looking for the traditional breakfast menu, you will be disappointed. They do not have... More

Love their flavored coffees. For Valentines Day I bought a cake for two. It was out of this world! Next year my wife wanted the same thing. They have a great product.

The goods do not tastes too good. However, they are decorated beautifully. I ordered an apple pie. It weighted 20 lbs!! The apples were very dry and tasteless. I ordered an italian cream cheese cake for my daughter's birthday. When ordering, I asked that they not put so much icing and if they could make it a two layer. I... More

After reading other reviews, we decided to eat here. I had the Turkey and Provolone on Focaccia and my wife had the Turkey and Provolone on Wheat. The turkey was good since they heated it on a press. Unfortunately, the sandwiches are pre-made at this location and they had no fruit @ 11:15 am in the morning. Maybe the other... More
