They have such a variety of different delicacies and the cheesecake is to die for. They have every type of dessert or lunch type food that you can think of and everything is just so delicious and the staff is so wonderful.

Rao's is a staple in Beaumont! They always have great coffee, and the atmosphere is always inviting. If you're looking for a trendy coffee joint with a hint of irony, this is not your scene...it's more of a bakery feel. Sadly...they try to do too much when it comes to the bakery. As a result, most of the baked goods... More

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.

Thank Andrew C
