King Cakes

NOTE: We are sorry, but due to very high demand, we are unable to accommodate any more pre-orders for the 2018 Carnival season. Cakes are available on a first-come first-served basis only. 1/26/18


DONG PHUONG King Cakes return January 6, 2018 with our Carnival Kickoff party you won't want to miss! Beat the line and PRE-ORDER your king cake! King Cakes will be available for pickup at 141 W Harrison in Lakeview beginning Saturday 1/6/18.

In 2015, we began offering king cakes from Dong Phuong bakery and the response was incredible. So many customers tell us "this is the best king cake I've ever had," and we agree.

We're delighted to continue our partnership with Dong Phuong in 2018. Located in New Orleans East, Dong Phuong has been serving the community for over 30 years, and many area restaurants serve their French bread and pastries. Their King Cakes are out of this world. They're made with a light, flaky rich pastry dough with a scalloped outer edge and topped with a yummy cream cheese icing (instead of the powdered-sugar based frosting which is glopped on to most other area cakes). Pizza Nola is one of the very few places in the city (aside from making the trek to New Orleans East) where you can get a Dong Phuong King Cake.

The King Cakes will arrive with fanfare on Saturday, January 6, with a special Carnival Kickoff party in our parking lot! Benny Grunch and The Bunch will play, we'll have breakfast from Bawk and coffee from Coast Roast and a lot of surprises. The party runs from 8-10am so get here early!  (Here's a recap of last year's event and from 2015!

In Nola.com's 2014 survey of area King Cakes, Judy Walker called Dong Phuong’s king cake “one of the most unusual, and delicious, of all the cakes we tasted.” Read about how the unique way Dong Phuong's King Cakes are made.

Dong Phuong King Cakes are available daily throughout Carnival. They come in one size and in Cinnamon, Cream Cheese and (new for 2018) Pecan!. Call us at 504-872-0731 to reserve your favorite (48-hour notice preferred) as we will run out! We'll also deliver King Cakes throughout our regular delivery area. The cost is $20 for the Cinnamon cake, and $22 for the Cream Cheese or Pecan.

If you've never had Dong Phuong King Cake, you are missing out on a truly incredible experience. Try one for yourself this Carnival!
