Came into this nice place for a cup of coffee and it turned out to be one of the best desserts I've ever had. Great italian coffee and a wonderful cheesecake. Nice variety of pastries and pies. Will definitely come back for more.

Rao's Bakery used to be the favorite place for me and my wife to have breakfast out and still is to buy bakery products like a birthday cake to take away. People are friendly and helpful and owner visits often enough, although having multiple bakery locations, to keep up standards and know what goes on. They do an excellent job... More

For those watching their weight, a bakery may not be your first choice for lunch but their Sicilian Tuna Salad is awesome! No mayo in the recipe and always tastes fresh. I prefer the salad cup to cut down on the bread. This salad with a fruit cup will keep your stomach satisfied all afternoon.

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 Orleans.

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!
