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

We were trying Kings cake for the first time. They had it even in the off season. They make original and flavored. They have their own parking lot. The employees were very nice helping us with directions and things to do in the area.

Love the White Almond Petit Fours, little bit size wedding cake. The Doberge Squares and recently got hooked on Almond Croissant and just about everything in that sinful place.

This is the first time I have used Haydel's for King Cake. The king cake was delicious, fresh and delivered right on time. I wanted an authentic cake with the baby 'baked' inside the cake and Haydel's delivered! I would order from them again! LLBTR

We only stopped here to buy king cake based on locals' recommendations. They were right. The pecan praline king cake is amazing. We bought several to take home as gifts for friends. This will be a regular stop for us. Bonus that they are open on Sundays too.

Stopped by here by recommendation of a family member. The workers were great. They let you sample some of the bakery items before you purchased to make sure you liked the items. The petit fours are amazing as well as the King Cake that we bought and brought back to Dallas. The King cake is so moist and fresh nothing... More

Haydel's is on my family's "MUST BUY" list every time we go to New Orleans. Their desserts are THE BEST! You can't go wrong with anything you buy, but we always purchase a box (or two or three) of the petits fours and doberges. Yummy Yummy Yummy!!! FYI: they do domestic and international shipping

I can not tell you how gorgeous the things they have to offer at this bakery! It was out of this world. They gave us samples of everything we wanted to try, it was the best experience ever! The Cajun Kringle was the most delicious thing we tried! As a matter of fact we had one shipped to the kids... More
