We had just finished lunch at this Brazilian place called Quitutes, and were hankering something sweet for dessert. I rarely get into St. Bernard Parish but had heard good things about this donut places, so we headed over for a dozen to bring home.
Now, it was about 2:00 PM when we walked in the door. A lot of donut places make ALL of their donuts very early in the morning. So if you want fresh donuts, get there after 10:00 AM and you’re out of luck. As the day progresses, you get staler and staler donuts. I figured we’d get semi-fresh donuts at 2:00 PM.
The glazed donuts looked great! The lady that waited on us told us they just came out the fryer about 15 minutes ago. I couldn’t believe it, but after tasting them, I believed her. They were fresh and delicious! So were the Boston Cream Pie and blueberry cake donuts we bought.
I checked their website and saw they say they’re famous for having fresh donuts 24 hours a day. And they make king cakes year round! That’s good to know because after the Mardi Gras season is over I hate waiting until winter to get my next king cake.
They serve regular food too. So if you’re ever in the mood to play video poker, and grab a burger, donuts and a beer at 3:00 AM, this is the place for you!

This is the Kenner, LA., location. We decided to give it a try for breakfast today. My dining partner ordered a croissant with eggs, bacon and cheese, with a side of grits and tater tots. I decided on the cheese lovers omelet with bacon added, grits, and a large pancake.
&& THE FOOD &&
Everything was great! The croissant was HUGE! My dining partner was only able to eat half. Very good grits, too.
My omelet was full of bacon and cheese and cooked nicely. Not too hard.
The pancake was maybe the best I ever had. My mom used to fry pancakes in butter, which gave them crispy, buttery edges that I loved. This one was like that. Outstanding!
We took some donuts home. I like the little motivational quote on the box. We all need that kind of encouragement in our lives. We wanted a couple chocolate covered glazed donuts and they didn’t have any, so they made some! Freshly dipped some glaze for us, that is. All the donuts were very fresh.
Great place. Worth the drive to Kenner for breakfast.
