You have not tasted a King's cake until you have had one of their's. Had read about this bakery for years, but finally got to visit it in person. So many to choose from. Employee recommended the praline stuffed. OMG!

The only knock on Haydel's is that they are so good they almost always run out of something. The chocolate chip cookies are gone if you don't get there early.They do make one of the best King Cakes in the city. I wish they would bring back their sugar free brownies.

You can't go wrong with a Haydel's King Cake. Their doberge is SO good. Anything you get here is going to be delicious. If there's a line, it's worth the wait.

Normally I order my king cakes from Randazzo's and have them shipped to Houston. But my wife wanted the strawberry cream cheese from Haydel's. We weren't disappointed. Haydel's king cake is actually thicker than Randazzo's, but Randazzo's king cake has cream cheese throughout. Haydel's strawberry cream cheese is layered on top of the cake. Still very delicious. Approximately $53 (overnight... More

Their king cake is exactly the way an original king cake is supposed to be! You're not a true New Orleanian until you get a king cake from Haydel's. And the ceramic figures are adorable

Haydel's Bakery’s new copycat Hubigs pie holds no comparison to the real deal. Hubigs Pie’s has been out of business for a while and now Haydel’s is trying to make a copycat pie like theirs use to be, but the pie is baked not fried like Hubig’s was. Plus the price is real high at 2.49 each for a hand... More

Petit fours and other confections were just as good as I remember. The line was pretty lengthy, but the wait was short and the server was most friendly and patient while I poured over the wonderful treats in the case to package up to bring back home to Texas.

Haydel's has a wonderful selection of pastry, but their new baked hand pies are fabulous! Flaky crust, not too sweet. They are better than Hubigs! Way to go Hadel's!

Haydel's made a 4 tier king cake for my daughter's wedding. The bakery was very easy to work with and the cake was DELICIOUS! It was delivered on time and the guests raved about how good it tasted - and how beautiful it was.

Stopped by Haydel's on the way out of town just so we could get a Cajun Kringle, which is a large ring of flaky, layered pastry with sugar and nuts. It was excellent. So good I'm tempted to order one online and have it shipped to me! Haydel's is also known for its King Cakes and had shelves full of... More
