   Haydel's Bakery
This unassuming bakery way out on Jefferson highway has been providing New Orleanians' with their traditional sugar fix for three generations. David Haydel's status as "the only baker in Louisiana that is internationally certified as a Craftsman and Master Baker" may have something to do with the uncommonly delicious delicacies that make their way out the door and onto the tables of the city. Arguably one of the city's best King Cakes, they ship them all over the country for those homesick souls stranded in colder climes. Every item on the menu here seems to lean up against some stake in Louisiana lore. The Cajun Kringle, Cajunnolis, Pralines, Russian Cake, Lemon Doberges, vol-au-vents...the list goes on. The place itself is tiny, well run, and usually packed with patrons up against all manner of Saints paraphernalia. Now go, and eat all the King Cake you can till you find that baked little baby.
