Excellent baked goods and coffee - a little expensive, but worth it. Much smaller than their newer location near Parkdale Mall.

I'm not a big fan of King Cakes, unless of course, it came from Rao's. Their cream cheese fill King Cakes are really, really good.

The best coffee in the area with many sweet treats as well as some savory dishes. There is free wifi and many people are working on their laptops while they sip on a cup of Joe in one of the heated mugs.

Loved cookies and baked goods. Also have good sandwiches. Excellent coffee. When ever in Beaumont it is a place we must visit, maybe multiple times.

Cinnamon buns from the past! Latte from the present. The pastries are excellent; the coffee is fine but not remarkable. Small place with limited seating. More of a bakery (the cakes look inviting) than a coffee shop.

I cannot say enough about Raos. The sweet treats are the best from the beautiful cakes, the amazing muffins, dreamy cupcakes. There is something for everyone here. You may choose to buy a whole cake, a mini cake or just a slice. Everyone should try them all!!!!#sweet#goodness

Very nice location with flavorful treats but, if you want doughnuts.....you better get there early as they only make a "set" number and don't take pre-orders so if a business buys 6 dozen, you just might be out of luck....

The coffee was decent (quite probably the best in Beaumont), and there was a nice range of pastries. Lunch items were a bit more limited, but for a simple bite, this was more than sufficient. We appreciated that it was a family run place since the 1940s with an independent and local vibe that made it a far cry from... More

We had a coffee break here and loved the great service and delicious food. The gumbo is unusually good, the king cake delicious, the coffee was great, and the service was amazing! Thanks to everyone at Rao's bakery.
