Welcome to Haydel's

For over 3 generations, Guinness record-holding Haydel's Bakery has been treating discriminating New Orleanians to the finest fresh-baked cookies, cakes and pastries. Originally a small, 24-hour-a-day window service shop, the family-owned and operated business quickly grew into a local tradition with a national reputation for unparalleled quality and service.

Each year during Mardi Gras, Haydel's ships overnight thousands of fresh, delicious Mardi Gras King Cakes directly from its ovens to anywhere in the U.S. and around the world. And during the Holidays, Haydel's Cajun Kringles® bring a southern taste of the season to customers everywhere.
