Great atmosphere, excellent service, delightful hot chai latte, and artistic and heavenly baked goods. You must visit and partake! Recommended by a local and was beyond expectations! Walk in and enjoy a feast for the eyes: truffles and gelato and pies and cookies and cakes and pastries galore! So much to choose from--the friendly, cheerful staff (included the owner's granddaughter) will help with a decision. We took home a sampling feast for our tummies that included a mini doberge cake, cream puff, chai latte cup, chocolate serenity cheesecake, petit four (poured icing, not fondant), almond finger, and a couple of cookies and slices of pie (Lea's pecan pie has serious competition!). Obviously we didn't eat it all at once; however, we had to visit the next day because of our sharing the delicious feast with children via FaceTime. We had orders to fill! Their website doesn't do their selection justice as they serve breakfast and lunch and are open late (for a bakery). We will definitely be visiting this bakery again!

Ordered a Custom Sandwich - Turkey and Roast Beef on a French Roll with the Veggies and Cheese. It was absolutely amazing... the meat was just shy of two inches thick. It was in no way a "Wish Sandwich" i.e. Wish You Had Some Meat to go along with Bread. I also had Homemade Tomatoe Soup... It was thick based and packed with flavor, like non I have ever tasted before. I ended up getting some fresh peanut butter cups and carmel filled chocolate treats; they were excellent as well. The staff was friendly and seem to enjoy their job. Hopefully, I will get a chance to visit again before I leave the area since they primarily serve breakfast and lunch.

If you want sweet, this is central Louisiana's finest! My granddaughter and I visited their satellite downtown, Crave. The name says it all! Bliss!

We stopped in for breakfast on the recommendation of our hotel. The bakery serves a full menu for breakfast and lunch, not just pastries. It was delicious. We did not try their sweets, but the pastry cabinet was full of beautiful goods: cakes, cookies, candy, and specialty items. Definitely want to come back to Alexandre just to eat here.

Their Queen soup in a bread bowl and chicken salad on a croissant are out of this world good. And of course there are all of those sweets to choose for dessert!!
