    Coffee Call in Baton Rouge makes a pretty good beignet too. However, Cafe Du Monde is the best.

    You just can't beat beignet and a cafe au lait or hot chocolate. Especially when it's fresh out of the fryer.

    +1 for Browns Bakery. I have gotten my King Cakes there for the past several years. If you want to pick up a cake on the morning of Fat Tuesday, you will probably need to place an order.

    As mentioned, Whole Foods has a large display of King Cakes in their OKC store.

    Homeland had them last year, but i didn't try one. If you can't get a fresh made the best King Cake is the one you make yourself. Picked up a King Cake kit and it was fantastic, came with the purple, gold and green sprinkles and a few babies. By tradition if you get the baby you throw the next Mardi Gras PARTY. But i have not found a good substitute for a Cajun Mardi Gras party around here. Not saying us Okies don't know how to throw a party, but Hurricane mix from a bag equals bad after taste.

    Staying in a balcony room on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras should be on every party lovers bucket list.

    I know MG is over, but I just had to chime in to clear up a few misconceptions.

    First of all, this thread is pretty much on target regarding King Cake history, best bakeries in NOLA to get them, etc.

    But, I replied because one thing that the national media does that makes all New Orleanians cringe is that the media portrays Mardi Gras as this obscene, and outrageous festival. While if you really want to see a woman flash, you can for about THREE blocks of Bourbon St..... NOT the whole freakin city. Locals don't even go anywhere NEAR Bourbon Street.

    If you want authentic Mardi Gras tradition where the locals go, you need to go Uptown along St. Charles or Napoleon Ave. It's probably 95% locals and it's FAMILY-oriented. It wasn't until about 1980 that MG got sensationalized by the media as a place for Spring Breakers to get trashed.

    That is a perfect account of a real, authentic MG experience.

    Okay, I've said my peace, haha.

    I agree about Mardi Gras and New Orleans in general. I have been to New Orleans many times and it is one of my favorite cities in the U.S. Unfortunatley, many people that visit New Orleans are only exposed to Bourbon Street. Even the rest of the French Quarter is a really interesting and historic place. I do not drink alcohol, yet I can spend three or four days in the New Orleans area and have a great time in the French Quarter, Garden District, Uptown, Mid-City, and even the suburbs. I have friends that have been to New Orleans multiple times that do not know the Garden District, which is along the St. Charles Line, even exists. It has beautiful homes and gardens from the 1800's.

    I tell people that visiting New Orleans and only visiting Bourbon Street is like coming to Oklahoma City and only visiting Valley Brook.

    The St. Charles line is the oldest, continuous street car system in the US. Every visit to New Orleans, I ride up and down St. Charles Ave to view this grand old section of the city. Audubon Park is a great visit!. The spanish moss hanging from the old live oak trees and the old antebellum mansions. I love MG and NO such a grand old, southern city!
