This is a truly great bakery. There was a large variety, even at 1:30PM when we went. (So clearly they refresh their baked good, contrary to other reviews). It was very difficult to choose what to get but I went with the Chocolate Opera Cake with cherries. It was delicious. The coffee was also quite good. Highly recommend!

What a great find! We were window-shopping on Magazine Street when we came across La Boulangerie. The pastries were wonderful, and just how I like them: not too sweet. I had the mille-veuille vanille (I am sure I butchered that spelling), but anyway, it was a creme-filled delight. Pleasant atmosphere. It was fun hearing people that were actually speaking French...

We walked into this place after a lunch at one of the local bbq places. Wife had spotted it while driving down Magazine Street and wanted to try it out. I am so glad that we tried it. The pastries were excellent, although a little bit on the too sweet side. We had the Napoleon and Tiramisu and bought some... More

This french bakery on Magazune is a must eat place. I had the quiche Lorraine, it was light, fluffy and perfect. The smoke salmon sandwich was tasty and we'll balanced. The pastries were french perfections light, flaky not too sweet.

Went here after looking and reading reviews and was very disappointed. Walked in around 11 am and most of the pastries were already gone. They had 2 wrap sandwiches that looked like they were there from Hurricane Katrina. Not impressed with this establishment at all . Took my wife there for there cream puffs and napoleon , unfortunately they had... More

Thanks to the TA advisors we caught bus 111 on Magazine Street to eat lunch at La Boulangerie. It is so typical of a French bakery in France with lovely bread and desserts. We had a ham and cheese sandwich and a croc monsieur. Topped that off with 2 wonderful French desserts. It was fun to watch neighbors come in... More

Had spinach quiche and tea to eat at the cafe. There is a microwave oven where you can warm up your treat. Price reasonable and very tasty. I also french baguette and the bread was really good.

We'd read all the glowing reviews and heard great things about this French bakery, which has won all sorts of awards and "best of New Orleans designations from visitors and residents alike. So we went there for breakfast on Saturday morning as we were headed out of town and on our way elsewhere. We found lots of framed accolades on... More

Amazing selection of breads! Great location on magazine street. Their almond croissants are my favorite in the city! I am never disappointed.
