Actually haven't visited the bakery but did order a King Cake on-line. Order was delivered promptly (to Minnesota), was packaged well, and arrived undamaged. Cake was delicious!

This was my absolute favourite place we visited while in New Orleans! Over the week we were there, we had traditional beignets, as well as PB&J filled ones, and a savoury crabmeat one! They were incredible, and even better than the other touristy suggestions for...More

You simply cannot go to New Orleans and not at least sample a praline. My husband particularly enjoys them, so we HAD to find a praline shop while we were there. He wasn't disappointed.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

They have them daily, but get there early before they sell out. You can also get them at The Beignet Festival on Oct, 6, 2018 where Ms Loretta will be cooking andserving them all day.
