REVIEWS OF Gracious Bakery IN Louisiana

Meredith Enzone

I don't know how it is normally but when we went they were out of everything - quiche, chicken, spinach, sourdough bread - well actually every type of bread except rye (supposedly). Everything I could eat was sold out so I tried to simply get granola & yogurt so I could just put something on my stomach to avoid medical issues but it wasn't "brunch" time so they COULDN'T/WOULDN'T put that together either, even considering there was pretty much nothing else left. Well later I did see a different kind of bread come out besides rye, yet I was told I had to have a grilled cheese on rye bread. Very unhelpful - actually staff was completely oblivious to how unhelpful they were.

First refill of a large ice tea is free! Can’t beat that. Tried their chocolate chili bread and the rustic tart and both are amazing.

Had the caramelized onion and Gruyere brioche which was delicious but I’m sad I couldn’t try all the other things. Super nice staff as well.

Drew Masterson

We were very pleased with our experience at Gracious Bakery! The Chocolate Croissant with Dulce de Leche is an all-time pastry in my opinion.

Ed Purcell

Great baked goods, only street parking

Marjorie White

Good food , not your ordinary bakery

Angelica Murphy

Was the perfect light lunch as we walked around the garden district. Filling but not heavy and super fresh and delicious would return in a heartbeat

Mark Jimenez

Walked in to a pleasant greeting from the staff. The menu is very easy to read and has a wide selection of drinks and sandwiches and pastries. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich and smoked turkey sandwich. Both were absolutely delicious with the bread being the the highlight of the sandwiches. Baked fresh with a slight crunch on the exterior but soft and full of flavor inside of the buns. I would come here again whenever I have a chance.

Ford Jacka

Great but expensive

Marcus Mckay

Very clean, friendly staff. Offers a lot of options with baked goods as well with sandwiches, soups, salads, and coffee. Perfect for a quick bite or drink.


Fresh, wholesome and relaxed. We stepped in and still wish we were there.... loved the quaintness of its atmosphere. Coffee shop feel....

Andrew Dodenhoff

First time in this shop. They had a quite an array of beautiful looking pastries. I had an almond croissant. It was flaky, buttery and generous amount of almond filling. I have had plain and Pain au chocolate at other Gracious. Their croissant are by far the best in NOLA.

Tod Bramble

A great bakery. Good looking / tasting pastries. Great coffee. I had the house cured salmon breakfast bagel. Really delicious. Nice people working the counter.

Crissy Bushman

Great small bakery. Had to keep changing my order because they were out of most of their sandwich breads and some cheeses. My sandwich, Turkey and pesto, was amazing on green onion focaccia! Service was good, but I felt sorry them having to tell the customers what they were out of. They need to step up the baking!

Anthony O'Sullivan

Monique Hamilton

Myriah Legaux

Patrick Bordnick

Great chocolate King cake and pastries

Alfonso Gonzalez Romero

Very good food and great pastries. The service is also great, the cashier and waiter were very friendly and the atmosphere is great. Great for lunch/brunch

James Kel Kinnick-Bitar

Delicious, delicious, delicious!! Stumbled across this little gem while walking around the Garden District. It's sort-of a mashup of bakery-coffee shop-bodega, as you can pick up a pastry, cake, espresso, or even a beer. Everything we ordered was absolutely perfect and yummy. We will definitely stop in to indulge our sweet dreams next time we visit New Orleans.

Lauren Winterbottom

Amazing coffee, pastries, and biscuit sandwiches. Staff is really friendly, and there is a lovely atmosphere.

Little options.

Keith Berthiaume

Simply the best cup of coffee I've had in the southern US.

Isela V

Cute bakery shop to stop in.

Hannah Dawson

Out of many of their pastries by 11am. Cold brew had a VERY bitter aftertaste; so much so that we thought it was an alcoholic cold brew at first. Would probably give this place a miss if I came back.

Dan Meske

Great quiche and mini pecan tart

James Catalano

Great brunch menu for a good price. Relaxed atmosphere. Good coffee.

Harlan Zwaig

Loved the food great location

Great spot for a light lunch and the best coffee in New Orleans. Menu is varied and caters for vegetation tastes. Take a St Charles Ave street car for a nice ride to lunch.

Jeff Goodwin

Darko Sarenac

Awesome snacks

Alfredo Roman

I really enjoyed my late lunch and coffee here. Nice hidden little spot.

Tatayana R.

This place is amazing and you can tell they put a lot of effort in the food. A little pricy but definitely worth the cost. If you are in New Orleans, give this place a try.

Christine Fitzpatrick

Their croissants are amazing! Everything is!

edgar couvillion

Nice for quick bite

Jessica Kwolek

Hidden gem! The coffee here was phenomenal, the pastries were on point and their build an egg sandwich tastes exactly like your grandma must have made it for you, with extra love. SO GOOD!

hagai yanai

Great sandwiches


Delicious pastries and local ambiance!

Michael N

David Thomas

Sweet find. Friendly staff. Great products and selections.

Cormac mac Keane

Latte was more of a cappuccino, the eggs on my breakfast sandwich were wet, which created a layer of mushy bread and made the sandwich inedible due to texture violations. I started gagging half way thru.

Kyle Goss

Melissa A

Food good. They misplaced our order, but did react swiftly when they realized the error. And they comped us a delicious chocolate croissant. I would return.

Lauren K

Gracious is the best. The elderberry iced tea is delicious and I've never ordered anything there I didn't like. The bouchon bites are especially great, awesome for a dessert tray or just getting a little chocolate fix without overdoing it. The staff are always really nice, too! I haven't ordered beer or wine there yet but the selection seems pretty decent.

Shannon Healy

Great food, cozy atmosphere, nice staff

Adonye jaja

Made every morning fantastic!

Noel Paterson

Yummy sandwiches! 4 stars because their espresso machine was out of service on a rainy day. Friendly staff.

Paige Totaro

Beautiful pastries and breads, great dark coffee, super-accommodating staff. We came in for breakfast and had the creamiest eggs I've ever tasted. Tiny pecan and chocolate tarts just begged to jump in my mouth.

Donald Schroder

Quiche Latte Crossants All delicious baked goods here in a friendly neighborhood atmosphere.

Brent Futrell

Excellent cuban but very slow. I table had guests when I walked in. A crowd soon formed once I was seated. Everyone in Cafe was served before me. Unacceptable

Tim Harrell

It's really good, but it's expensive..

Great food, better staff. I think her name was Kelly. Very knowledgeable and upbeat. You could tell she cared.

raymond glaser

It's a cute place. But the food is soso. The bake goods they offer change. Sometimes it is good but you can spend a lot of money and get nothing good in return.

Jennifer Senda

Excellent white cheddar breakfast sandwich and my latte was delicious. I'm still thinking about that sandwich 4 days later!!!

Sarah Moses

Come all the time, but didnt appreciate the rude barista dude.

Matthew Manning

judith anderson

Thank you for the yummies!!!

Kathleen Hopkinson

Cold sandwich that was supposed to be hot, almost no toppings on it, crazy expensive, such a rip off!

Ria Turnbull

Great selection of offerings. Fresh, delicious food.

Emily Shamburger

Tasty pastries (I had a chocolate and almond croissant--why has no one else ever put these flavors together? DELISH!) and good coffee. Service was quick and friendly. In a great little residential area of St. Charles and near Lafayette cemetery. Also had their challah buns at Avenue Pub and they were great!

Joni Stockdale

You have not had good coffee until you’ve been here. Take it from a coffee addict/ex barista with 5+ years of NON- Starbucks experience. I have NEVER tasted better. And, to top it off, their pastries are delectable. They are exactly the taste in your mouth that you crave when you think of the ideal pastry. The exact texture, and scent of heaven. Whatever you’re doing, drop it and come snag you a slice or cup of liquid sunshine. Also the staff is sweet and patient. Go.


Gracious Bakery and Cafe is a nice place on St. Charles Avenue. The servers are very friendly and I was impressed with their soup of the day. The sandwiches look hefty and amazing, especially the caprese. They have wonderful choices of cream cheese: salmon, roasted veggie or lemon caper. The prices are kind of high.

(Translated by Google) You might think that this teahouse on Saint Charles could be too expensive or industrial but the prices are right and the pastries or the sweet dishes are homemade and pretty good! A good address .... (Original) On pourrait penser que ce salon de thé sur Saint Charles pourrait être trop cher ou industriel mais les prix sont corrects et les pâtisseries ou les plats sucrés sont faits maison et plutôt bons! Une bonne adresse....

Michael Young

Great cold brew coffie. Very vanilla cupcakes are pretty good too!

Aaron Gemalsky

Great little cafe that wasn't over crowded. Coffee was great, their drink prices weren't bad. The food was good, but priced a little high. Overall a great place to start your morning!

Rolf Linder

A simple yet wonderful neighborhood spot, perfect for a.good cup of coffee, a baked treat, or a light lunch. Very warm and accommodating staff.

Nate Cole

Great breakfast sandwich.

Yeepan Penny Zhu

Great pastries and the best breakfast sandwich I've had in a while! Cafeteria like interior.

E Bird

I got the prosciutto mozzarella toast and it was hugely delicious. Fresh ingredients. Great tasting bread. Could be cut into smaller pieces maybe. Menu item said a Pear Gruyere soup was the soup of the day but it was not made or started …

Richard Bell Jr

Good service

Kenneth Hui

Great spot for a quick breakfast. Conveniently located on the corner of St. Charles & Sixth Street. Quick service and reasonable priced.

Leslie Molson

This location is inferior to the original on Jeff Davis Pkwy. They have instant "vending" machines for the espresso drinks, and there are a lot of tourists always, so be prepared to wait. Also there is never anywhere to park. A good option for those on foot, especially since it's on St Charles Ave.

Samantha Hoyt

Lots of options. The baked goods are great. The espresso is pretty eh.

Tressie Lee

Nice atmosphere and creative breakfast combinations

Joshua and Lesly Fox

Their bread is amazing!

Good coffee, excellent sweets, and food. Helpful and nice staff.

Angie Still

Wonderful in every way!

Jimmie Davis

You have to experience It !

Kristin Battenfield

My husband went to new Orleans for our honeymoon and we just so happen to see this place on the trolley and decided to get off, and it was by far the best decision we made for our entire honeymoon. It's been a few years since our honeymoon, and we still talk about this place and the dish that we had. This is an absolutely legendary bakery and I recommend absolutely everyone that is going to new Orleans and gonna be on the trolley to at least stop by and get a croissant if you're not gonna get anything else.

Laura G

Early lunch, always great food...And a water bowl outside for pup!

Jean Prieur

Ham and provolone in a croissant! Also, my favorite is the ham and artichoke with provolone cheese on special hand made bread around it. Both Heated.

Lori Bauersfeld

Fantastic. Wish they shipped.

Adrienne Kerr

Just terrific!

Leah Bratton



So disappointed! Went here based on the stellar reviews, but was let down. I had a cappuccino, which was made out of an instant machine. It left much to be desired. I also had the almond croissant, ham and cheese croissant, savory brioche, …

Sarah Edwards

Cristina Hernandez

Good coffee!!!

Pam Vias

Excellent baked goods!

Jane Thomas
