Maurice is one of the finest bakeries in the New Orleans metropolitan area. This establishment has baked classic French Pastries for decades, and is considered an essential for those that insist on the highest quality available and attention to detail.

My husband does not like cake, but he LOVES King Cake. The only problem is that we have moved out of Louisiana AND his birthday is in August. Finding a King Cake out of state is impossible and you must have them shipped overnight which is expensive. Finding them in-state outside of Carnival season is not an easy task either.... More

Love this bakery. Every time we go to NOLA we have to stop here for some goodies. We enjoyed the Drench bread and pastries.

We've indulged in their French King Cakes, Kugleholf cakes...croissants, cookies, breads all are made with wonderful amounts of butter, sugar and special care. It's a kind of "can't get of enough " kind of place. Everything has been really great !

We just picked up the most perfect Bananas Foster King Cake from Maurice's. As with every other cake we have ever gotten there, it was fabulous. When I went to pick it up, it was all that I could do to stop from buying everything in there. All of their pastries looked fresh and sinful. In particular, they had the... More

We've tried several king cakes from Maurice, and they were fantastic. The traditional King Cake was fresh, and everyone enjoyed it. We've also had the one topped with strawberries, and it was also excellent. Can't go wrong getting a cake for Carnival from here!

Maurice is the place to visit if you love pastries. The is incredible variety of cakes, macaroons, cookies. Everything is great but be sure to try the almond Kugelhopf. This is the best I've ever eaten. It is rich, smooth, and the taste is out of this world. The good thing is Maurice will ship for you, if needed

Stopped in here as we left town; we wanted a little something for the ride home! We couldn't have been more pleased by the selections! Made for a very difficult decision, so we took just about one of everything! LOL The Napoleon was our hands down FAVORITE pastry! Followed by the lady finger cookies! The Scottish shortbread cookies were pre-packaged... More

I visited New Orleans for Mardi Gras but I didn't order a king cake until the day I left. I didn't know whether to call ahead or if the king cakes were ready upon order. It turns out that during the Mardi Gras season, they have king cakes ready to go, but after it you must order them ahead of... More
