Meche's Donut King has the best donuts and pastries in the city. They also make the best King Cakes around Mardi Gras time. A must stop when visiting Lafayette.

Their window says they’re the best and their donuts prove it. I visited as an out-of-towner but now live in the area and this place will become a regular stop for me. If you’re in town, you must get breakfast here at least once.

This place is very busy. 6 wait staff and line out the door on Sunday morning. Parking can be a bit challenging but it is worth the trouble and wait to enjoy!
