The bakery items are the best, except the cookies are too sweet. The apple pie is the best in the world; the strawberry napoleon is wonderful! Coffee is good.

I came here with as a double date with my friends and it was packed. The frappuccinos were too bland and the cakes are not that tasty. They are too sweet without actual flavor. I had even ordered a cake for my significant other a...month beforehand and it was incorrect. I would suggest visiting the Calder location or just skipping the whole visit. It is nice that they are open late.More

We stopped here while travelling thru the area. The small King Cake was good. The Rao's Cinnamon Apple Loaf was too dry to swallow and crumbled when we tried to slice it. The restaurant was clean but the selection was very limited on the Saturday...afternoon that we visited.More

One of the two great home grown businesses. Rao's bakery items are very famous within Jefferson and Orange counties. They offer giant cinnamon rolls, various coffees, gelatos, custom pies and cakes, king cakes for Mardi gras season, etc. For years we got our daughter the...same strawberry iced cake for her birthday. You will often see police officers at the Calder shop ( older and quainter in my opinion) and the new money folks up at the Dowlen Road shop across from the mall. You can of course oder items to go, as the photo shows, we took their cake to another location for the birthday dinner. In recent years they started offering sandwiches and soups for lunch..( although Jason's Deli is the high volume option in that category).More

This is my favorite coffee shop in Beaumont. Anytime I am in town, I come for coffee and muffins as I work on my computer projects. Outstanding selection of coffee. Very friendly staff with their Southern precious hospitality. Highly recommended.

Seriously. What's not to like? Two locations in Beaumont, good tea and coffee and specialty drinks, the best sugar cookies anywhere, and a crazy array of desserts. The Dowlen location also has gelato! The staff is pleasant and so is the atmosphere, plus you can...purchase a really unusual gift or two for that person who's hard to shop for!More

Just can’t get any better than Rao’s pastries, cookies, speciality sweets and coffees. We come by frequently for pastries and coffee or for lunch. They also have great sandwiches.
