Get there when they open as they have everything out and you will not have to wait if they are out of something. Try the Olive Loaf French bread. The staff will be more than happy to get you what they are out of but sometimes you have to wait 10 to 15 minutes. Hands Down the best bakery in... More

We wanted to find a bakery as close to a French bakery as possible and this is it. Went with kids for a late breakfast on a Saturday around 11:15 and we're able to find able table right away. They do not have a lot of seating but you can order everything to go. We had a little bit of... More

This place is New Orleans' best French bakery. The croissants and breads are excellent with plenty of exceptionally decadent options as well. While the recent ownership change has been controversial, I still find the place to have great pastries and baked goods.

The first two times we went to La Boulangerie on Magazine were wonderful. This third time we had horrible service, and we hope it was just a fluke. My daughter ordered the sausage kolache and they said they would warm it and bring it out to us. After 10 minutes we inquired, and the girl behind the counter just picked... More

Was in the area so we stopped to get a bite to eat. Visually spectacular, we ordered a Blue Cheese Loaf, Ham and Cheese Croissant, and a Le Parisienne Sandwich (Butcher ham, salted butter, Comte cheese corniche soon baguette). It was all so good that on the following morning our last in NO, we went back there for breakfast and... More

Love this spot to grab a coffee and a pastry! My absolute favorite is the blue cheese loaf, but the almond croissant is a close second. And during Mardi Gras, I always have to pick up their French King Cake - it's the best!

Magazine Street has become a must-go-to street in New Orleans! The boutiques and shops and over-all feel makes it a great street to walk around. It's not too far from the Garden District. If you live in the area, la Boulangerie must be your morning gem! I would be visiting every morning!! But alas, I visited as a tourist. Was... More

Delicious!!! The closest you can get to France with these pastries. We shared a sandwich and then a pastry each. Oh my goodness - the carrot cake is like nothing we had ever tasted. Out of this world. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly (Cordelia is a gem and a huge asset to this establishment). Well worth the 1.2... More

IF YOU like a good cup of cafe au last and a crispy croissant or amazing almond croissant, go! Great bread selections and pastry too! While off to a slow start with the new ownership all is good again! Sure do miss my apricot danish though! Very French!

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighborhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
