“King Cake”
Review of Meche's Donut King

Meche's Donut King
Ranked #2 of 12 Bakeries in Lafayette
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 2, 2014

Everyone in Lafayette knows that Meche's has the best King Cake, but did you know you can buy one any time of the year? Of course, being a Cajun, I would only buy one during Mardi Gras season, but if you are visiting from out of town...why not?

We get this at work pretty often. They have the best donuts in Lafayette in my opinion. During Mardi Gras no one comes close to their King Cakes. They also have very good kolaches in all types.

I'm not a sweet eater. Until there's a cream cheese king cake from Meche's. I could inhale a large cake in one day. Yes they're that good.

Meche's has put several branches all over Lafayette and the surrounding area, but this original location is by far the best! I order the plain glazed, and they often have them warm and fresh...amazing. They make their own cream cheese filling, and the cream-filled donut is a favorite. My friend loves their strawberry donut and glaze. Their chocolate glazed is popular. King cakes are original and worth trying if you love their donuts. Kolaches are available, too! Worth splurging when you're in town!

I like donuts as much as the next person but these are best warm. I also like their turkey and pepperjack kolaches.
