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.

From the Blog

Haydel's Collectables Since 1989, Haydels has included more than just the normal baby hidden in their king cake boxes. Porcelain figurines made by local artist Alberta Grun Retif Meitin Lewis have become a beloved tradition with a few new designs every year. Some favorites include the first doll they ever made, 1990s Frozen Charlotte Baby, the Flambeau Carrier from 1993, 2007s FEMA Trailer Float, and 2011s #1 Saints Fan. By the time of Lewis passing in 2012, her figures had become cherished. Families across New Orleans and beyond had favorites they saved and those they remember but never got their hands on. The Haydels knew they had to keep her tradition alive and found one of Lewis friends to carry the torch on in her memory. Sculptor Rick Devries now makes the figurines just as he did he and Alberta Grun Retif Meitin Lewis began over 28 years ago. It took little convincing to get Rick on board and the tradition lives on. This years figurines include Iris Sunglasses and a Mardi Gras Page. If youre looking for one the past years creations, youre in luck. We have the Porcelain collectables for sale at our online store where not sold out for just $5.
