Best experience ever for hosting a shower, staff attentive and food wonderful. Sandwich trays, Gelato punch, and cupcakes! Easy setup and easy acess for our guests. Highly recommend private room. Out of town guests were also impressed with selections in bakey cases.

This is the place if you want to have good coffee and really great sweets, sandwiches and gelato. Great place to conduct one on one business or simply spend some time online with a comfortable atmosphere

Best place in Beaumont for muffins, cookies, and coffee. I go there on a routine basis. Their King Cakes are outstanding also.

My family and I love Rao's. Whenever we are in town and have a few minutes to kill, we invariably end up having coffee or hot chocolate and sampling one of the many delicious desserts. The sandwiches are quite tasty for a light lunch, as well. During Mardi Gras season, there is no better place to get a king cake.

A corner bakery that's small but full of goodness. Cakes cookies brownies and sandwiches hot or cold with gourmet coffee as well as bottled water and soda. The chocolate brownie mousse was delicious but too sweet for me. To top this off they have homemade Italian ice cream. Everything looks wonderful.

Well, I have been here for the last time. I don't know what has happened, Rao's used to be the bakery to visit. I order cakes usually for special occasions. The last three times, the order has been taken and paid for. All three times, they tried to charge me again after I paid over the phone. This last order,... More
