Every trip to the New Orleans area includes a side trip to Haydel’s for pastries. This is a small family bakery with a wide variety of cakes and pastries. Always fresh, always worth the stop. Try the petit fours. All the joy with less guilt.

French Almond Croissant and petit fours are the best I have ever eaten. I make sure that I visit this bakery every year when I visit!

You can't go wrong with a Haydel's King Cake. Their doberge is SO good. Anything you get here is going to be delicious. If there's a line, it's worth the wait.

Normally I order my king cakes from Randazzo's and have them shipped to Houston. But my wife wanted the strawberry cream cheese from Haydel's. We weren't disappointed. Haydel's king cake is actually thicker than Randazzo's, but Randazzo's king cake has cream cheese throughout. Haydel's strawberry...More
