Well, that was a quick one! After baking an immeasurable number of king cakes and sharing our favorite time of the year with countless happy friends, we bid this Mardi Gras adieu. Happy Mardi Gras, y'all and thank you for letting us be a part of your family. We are taking a loooong, much needed break. We are closed today and will be open again on Tuesday, February 20th. See you then!

I have lived in the greater New Orleans area, my whole life. Stopped in to get a king cake, got a strawberry cream cheese, was dry like the Sahara. It isn’t filled there was a thin layer of filing sugar, so little that, I was asked why would I waste my money on a plain king cake... it wasn’t plain just plain ole nasty. It’s sad when you spend 30 bucks on a king cake and let your kids just eat the top sugar off and throw the rest away... all I could think was how it would have made a good bread pudding But that could have been done for a lot less than 30 bucks, and the point of me stopping was for a bible study that night I didn’t have time to go home and bake, but lesson learned.

Ordered my wedding cake few weeks ago and it was literally the best cake I've ever had. Only thing I regret is that we didn't have time to get more and should have boxed up rest to go. I will be ordering from them again!! We ordered regular white/almond cake with buttercream frosting! I'm just curious if they ship as we live out of state!! See More

Haydel's did our cakes for our wedding this weekend and they were off the chain. We received so many compliments on the cakes and they were absolutely delicious. Our wedding cake had the praline filling and the groom's cake was chocolate peanut butter. Excellent presentation as well. I highly recommend them for your wedding needs or if you have any cake needs. See More

My husband is from New Orleans and Haydels is his favorite king cake. We now live in Iowa so we order a cake every year from Haydels. This year we ordered 2 cakes to be shipped out on February 9 but... our king cakes were not shipped out to us! Very disappointed because it was my husbands birthday cake. See More

So, Randazzo’s didn’t have any filled king cakes. I called Haydel’s and then drove across town to get a strawberry and cream cheese filled one. Paid for a filled cake- got home and a couple hours late...r, decide to have some. DRY!!!! NO filling! NASTY! Not sure why people rave over Haydel’s, but I won’t be back! If it wasn’t an hour drive back, I’d bring them their nasty king cake back and ask for my money back. VERY disappointed!!!! See More

Ordered a king cake from Haydels to be delivered to Canada. There was a glitch in their system so it was delayed, but after Christmas received it quickly right to my door. It was very fresh, even stil...l a little cold from being frozen before delivery and tasted great. A few items included in the package I ordered were missing. But they sent out the items with extra coffee, and another Mardi Gras magazine as well as a gift card for those issues that happened. The cake itself tasted wonderful light and cinnamony and the icing has a lemon flavor which was great together. Thanks to Haydels for all they did and a great, large King Cale. See More

Haydel's did my wedding cake along with cupcakes. They exceeded my expectations. Not only was it the most beautiful cake I have ever seen, but it tasted amazing. The attention to detail was incredible.... All of the staff that I encountered were helpful and friendly. See More

I’ve been getting Haydel’s King Cakes delivered here to the Midwest every year for about 8 years now for my Mardi Gras party. By far the best anywhere and worth every penny!

I just received a Cajun Kringle in the mail as a gift from a customer! This is probably one of the best pastries I have had in a long time! I just ordered one to be sent to a friend!

Best. King Cakes. Ever.

There is a very good reason why the line is out of the door during the season. Their King Cakes are wonderful.

Great service and delicious dessert. The birthday cake I wanted was not available in the display case. They checked in the back for me and had exactly what I wanted . They trained it in Saints colors ...while I waited. See More
