Still the best!

The best pastries EVA!!! If we have lunch at one of the nearby restaurants, we always skip dessert & then grab some petit fours for dessert. Swiss also baked our wedding cake - 22 years ago. Still the best!

I will start off by saying that the woman who helped me was as sweet as can be. I have no complaints about the service. She even allowed me to sample the cholcolate and wedding cake for free. That said, the chocolate cake was okay. The chocolate flavor was not very strong, and I would describe the cake as moderatelymoist.... More

He offered to have it delivered to the restaurant where we had reservations for dinner. The Cake was the best chocolate cake ever!! Our friend actually... More

The small sample squares of cakes melt in your mouth as did the cream/pineapple wedding cake cupcake. The cake decorations are simply the most elegant I have seen. Try the rum balls - to die for. A family owned treasure since 1921.

Traveled from San Diego to NOLA for my birthday and I wanted a cake no matter what! Saw this place was close to my hotel and restaurant and figured done! Wow, did I luck out! I emailed the bakery to find out what types of cake flavors and sizes they had and heard back from the right away. Next day... More

Due to some last minute issues, I had to find a bakery that could make our wedding cake in 2 days... I was recommended to The Swiss Confectionery by our reception planner. I called and was told to stop in so we could speak about the cake. When I arrived, I was overwhelmed by the kindness and understanding of the... More

We came to New Orleans to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday with a few friends. I ordered a small cake from Swiss Confectionery before we got down there. I wasn't expecting anything special. Based the price I was quoted, I expected a small plain Jane birthday cake. Wow! I was pleasantly surprised. They put as much care & attention into... More

For some odd reason, bakeries are not easy to find in New Orleans. We went looking for this one, and passed it up the first time because it is so simple. When we walked in the door, the place was clean and had multiple cake displays, but there was very little in the display case at the cashiers. At first,... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
