Been buying birthday cakes at Jo's for years. I was disappointed when they stopped being open on Saturdays. But I guess they don't need the extra weekend business. Staff is always friendly. The bakery always smells amazing and appears clean and neat. Cake decorators always try to give you want you want. Cakes are always light and well decorated.

After being in lake Charles for a while we had to find a cupcake place. This was the first place we tried and will look further. Unfortunately for the price you pay for specialty cupcakes there is nothing special about these. We got a half dozen of different flavors and only 2 of the 6 were even partially moist. I... More

Jo's Party House is more than a bakery in Lake Charles, it's a tradition. Their cakes are delicious. I believe the secret is in their icing. Their sandwiches are wonderful too. They bake cheese and seasonings into the bread. My favorite is the chicken salad.

The delightful smell knocks you out when you walk in. Do not go in hungry! THE MOST delicious icing and cake in this town. Fresh, moist. Trust.

ok, this is one of those places that has been around forever, and after I eat one of their dry cakes or cupcakes with the dry extra sugary icing, is quite perplexing when there's other much better options. But i know people that drive from out of town to pick up from here, so I think it must be a... More

For birthday cupcakes or cakes Jo's is it! The prices are decent. At school when a parent brings in a big box of these cupcakes there are smiles to go around...and you know you are in for a treat.

Jo's has good sweets and I've been eating their sweets for years. They have gotten expensive. I like them but don't think it's worth the price they charge.

Jo's has been around for decades for a reason! Not just your typical amazing cake place but great stop for sandwiches, best chicken salad I've had in Lake Charles next to Jason's Deli, continues to impress and amaze by their amazing staff, beautiful and whimsical cakes that make every occasion extraordinary! Keep up the good work!

Icing is wonderful!!! Cake or cupcakes are delightfule, but the place is a little pricey! I would never buy a cake for childs party or any other; just a cup cake or two. It's just too expensive.
