Wasn't Impressed – I grew up in Baton Rouge, LA, and they have the most delicious Doberge cakes in the world (I'm assuming next to France). So, for my husband's birthday I decided to try their Strawberry Doberge Cake. Well, the actual cake was crumbly and dry, the strawberry filling tasted like frozen pie filling from a can, and the frosting tasted like synthetic plastic. I could not eat the cake. Let me repeat, the cake was unedible! We ended up throwing the cake out ($30 cake), and I made a Betty Crocker! It was delicious. I feel horrible having to write this review because I don't like to give poor reviews, however, this was is warranted.
French bakery mainstay for killer croissants, fresh baked bread and speedy lunches. – In Short
This locally owned boulangerie has been a longtime favorite for sinfully rich baked goodies and breads. Arrive early for the freshest croissants, especially the ever-popular chocolate almond variety. Baguettes rest alongside hearty loaves and cinnamon apple bread. The bakery case reveals strudels, éclairs, frosted cupcakes, towering cakes (from chocolate to a Grand Marnier-soaked black and white cake) and buttery cookies. Quick and tasty lunches include quiches, boxed lunches, daily specials, tarragon chicken salad and build-your-own sandwiches.
