Oh sweet, sweet carbs

Carb and sugar lovers, rejoice. This map is for you.

The New Orleans baking tradition goes back at least to 1722, when a map of the city referenced a baker called Bellegarde. By the early 1900s, New Orleans had over 100 bakeries, but industrialization and the advent of grocery stores changed that soon after.

In recent years, bakeries in New Orleans have multiplied — and become more diverse. Think of this list as a snapshot of the excellent bakeries New Orleans has to offer. All the bakeries here have some variety, not just sweets and not just breads, with a few notable exceptions.

A word of caution: Remember that bakers rise before the sun, and generally close up shop in the afternoon, so do check hours.
