We were walking around the neighborhood when that fantastic bakery aroma found us and we found Binders. The staff was so friendly and willing to talk about the history of the bakery with us. We left with a few pastries and found out we already enjoyed their po'boy bread at a local po'boy shop.

The French bread is wonderful. Our guest house was a block away. Pastries melts in your mouth. The aroma in the neighborhood makes you HUNGRY. Had to have it every morning. Very pleasant wait staff.

Back in the neighbourhood and back to Binder's. Can't fault the place, and I can't see how other can, but each to their own. The popularity of the place and with the number of regulars returning for their carbohydrate overload of donuts & danishes, along with the bakery's bread rolls, french & po'boy bread, speaks for itself. Greatly outweighs any... More

We were desperately trying to find muffaletta bread while heading back home after a trip to New Orleans as we make our own and happened upon this place. It is very, very old school in a sort of sketchy neighborhood, but looks can be deceiving. Service is top notch and the French bread and muffaletta bread are AWESOME!! Donuts are... More

Just had to return here on my return to New Orleans. (Opens at 7am to early afternoon) This is where the locals go for their bread and their sugary fixations. The selection of doughnuts and cakes for less than a dollar each, makes for an inexpensive bun-fight, as arguments entail when it gets to sharing the doughnuts, as 'half-each' has... More

Staying in a house on N. Rampart, it was just a short two block walk down to the Binder Bakery on the corner of Frenchman St. and N. Rampart. Reviews on Trip Advisory recommended the "best" jelly donuts in the world. They did not disappoint! The jelly donuts come in powdered sugar, regular sugar, or glaze. For a mere 75... More

I have been to New Orleans twice and the po-boy bread made here is wonderful. All restaurants use it and I always take some back with me and freeze it. The Inn we stayed at, got its pastries from here each day and they were tasty. Quaint neighborhood with this small bakery with big bread.

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
