Welcome to Haydel's

For over 3 generations, Guinness record-holding Haydel's Bakery has been treating 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.

Ahhh, Christmas in New Orleans...

Strands of twinkling lights hanging from live oaks, the sound of choirs rejoicing in old churches, frigid temperatures plunging well below 85º, and family recipes making their highly anticipated return to dining room tables. In a city as diverse as New Orleans, it should be no surprise that Christmas means something different to every person you meet.

We want to know what Christmas means to you, our extended Haydel’s family.

Do you drive through Christmas in the Oaks with eggnog? Do you cook a big meal then go to midnight mass? Ham and carols? Fried fish and 24/7 re-runs of A Christmas Story? This year, the Haydel’s want to put something under your tree. Share a slice of your home’s Christmas tradition with us by creating a short 1-2 minute video and we will enter you in our special giveaway. We’ll be on the lookout for the best, most heartwarming, most NOLA Christmas experiences and the winner gets the sweetest stocking stuffer imaginable:

How does a $150 Haydel’s gift card sound for a surprise Christmas present?*

You simply have to upload a video on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #HaydelsForTheHolidays and tag us in it (@HaydelsBakery). You can post it on your own feed or right to our wall, whichever you prefer! We’ve got something really neat planned and we’d love for you to be a part of it. Curious what you'll be able to buy with all that cash? Check out our Holiday treats here.
Merry Christmas,
The Haydel’s
