Donuts are a breakfast staple spanning communities, breakrooms, coffee shops, and early morning meetings no matter where you reside in the US. Nothing awakens the senses like the smell of a freshly fried donut. Who can pass that up? Of course, Lafayette has plenty of bakeries and donut shops. Whether you're craving a classic glazed donut to grab and go or a cozy bakery to chat with friends over a unique, filled pastry, these beloved local gems will satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you craving more.
The newest addition to the Lafayette bakery scene, Lucia specializes in Viennoiseries Pastries - the love child of French bread and a classic pastry. This style is popular on the streets of Paris. The donuts offered at Lucia change daily and are more of a light, flaky stuffed pastry rather than a sugary sweet confection. I highly recommend the pistachio-filled donut.
There are three locations throughout Acadiana in Maurice, Carencro, and New Iberia, so Village Deaux is nearby no matter where a donut craving strikes! Patrons can choose from classic glazed, strawberry or chocolate topped, donut holes, cake donuts, or maple bacon.
The Coffee Depot is a warm, welcoming environment for good morning gatherings over coffee and crispy donuts. The interior has a log-cabin-in-the-woods feel and smells of coffee and beignets. Linger and stay for lunch, as they also offer soups, salads, and sandwiches.
With two locations in Lafayette, Cajun Market Donut Co. can serve you wherever you are. Cajun Market has what you need if you are looking for a sweet treat with all of the sugar. From classic glazed to chocolate covered, sprinkles, event mint! They even do custom birthday donut orders for the donut lover in your life.
Keller's is one of the oldest bakeries in town. They are well known for their adored king cakes, but Keller's also serves up some mean donuts. Choose from the classics, filled, cake, glazed, and sprinkles.
You can find a Ricky Meche's Donut King in Youngsville, Kaliste Saloom Rd, and Pinhook Rd. Each location guarantees a hot, sticky, fresh out of the fryer glazed donut daily until 10 am. You can get them as early as 4 am.
There is a Lafayette and Youngsville location. Home Cut Donut has all your favorites, including eclairs, filled, glazed, chocolate, and sprinkles. You can pick up an apple fritter or a cinnamon donut at Home Cut. Do you love cake donuts and glazed donuts and can't decide? Then get a glazed cake donut!
