If you want the most delicious King Cake, you have to get it from Meche's. They have been open a looong time and the quality and expertise comes through in their delicacies. The lemon filled donuts are so delicious and well as the apple fritters-- both are my favorites. The blueberry/cream cheese filled king cake is my number one top... More

If you want them hot out of the oil, go in the morning, especially on Saturdays and Sundays. Guaranteed to be hot!

Meche's makes THE MOST DELICIOUS, fluffy and heavenly donuts and pastries. My favorite is the apple fritter. The best is to catch them early in the morning while they are still hot. I always pick up extra for my co-workers.

There are several Meche locations in and around Lafayette. For a basic donut they about all the same. But if you are craving a king cake- Meche's Style- then the place to go is Meche's on Guilbeau Road! They make what is equivalent to a monster size braided donut smothered in green, gold and purple icing and filled with your... More

Their traditional glazed and other option donuts are always super fresh. They also make one of the best king cakes I've ever had as well as several other baked items such as Banana breads, cupcakes, and other pastries. Their kolaches are to die for as well.
