I'm a local and I've been to this place several times. Very pretty, everything well displayed. If you are looking for "sweet" desserts this is not the place - more the European model and not as sweet as Americans are used to. Skip the gelato - other places do it better. The pastries are good and they always have a... More

First, the atmosphere is lovely. Can't beat the charming surroundings, big windows, clean interior, nicely decorated. Second, the coffee is delicious, the espresso beans they use are smooth and rich, makes for perfect lattes. Third, the deserts are incredible, had the hazelnut mousse cake and bought macaroons as a gift for family. Not cheap, one macaroon is $2, and the... More

I love gelato and this place met my needs. Great selection of flavours on offer and reasonably priced. We chose to eat dessert here instead of at our restaurant and it was worth the short detour after dinner.

Stopped in here twice in my most recent trip. Sucre has become a required stop whenever we are in town--gelato to eat in and macaroons to go!

Every time I find myself in New Orleans, I come to this shop, either on Magazine Street or out in Metairie. It is THAT good-- comparable to the macarons I have had in Paris. This trip, we ordered gelato (to eat on the spot) and macarons (to go). The flavors of both are quirky and delicious. The gelato is legit,... More

It was such a cute bakery! My sister got cookies and cream gelato that was absolutely fantastic so creamy and very good. I had a bananas foster macaroon and a chocolate macaroon both were amazing very moist unlike most macaroons I've had. I would definitely go back

Sucre has amazing gelato and milk shakes. Their king cakes are fabulous as well. I've had one the past few Mardi Gras seasons, and I can't wait until this season. Don't go by this place without going in.

Stopped in just to look, ended up spending a long while talking to the very nice young lady and older gentleman behind the counter. They were so wonderfully warm and helpful. Tried several types of gelato, all were so exceptional we had a hard time deciding on which flavor we wanted. Pistachio and lemon pie were the winners. We also... More

I looooove sweets like Oprah looooooves bread! OMG, this place is heaven! You have to stop in for some macaroons... or ice cream... or something else decadent. One of the best bakeries I've ever been to.

What a great place to cool off and get some delicious ice cream. All the flavors we tasted were great and we went here twice, once on Magazine and once in the French quarter. They also have beautiful cupcakes and fancy candy that all looked good. Very great place to cool off and get ice cream.

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
