I will be visiting Baton Rouge for a few days next week and have a hankering for poboys and king cakes. I've had them before in New Orleans and enjoyed them quite a bit. Any suggestions on bakeries or sandwich shops to get poboys and king cakes would be appreciated. I will be staying near the Mall of Louisiana area. Thanks!

For poboys, my faves (oyster/shrimp poboys) are (1) The Chimes (north gates of LSU on Highland and Coursey between Cedarcrest and Sherwood Forest), (2) Heads and Tails (Silverside, which is on Perkins across the street from the Albertsons), and (3) Sammys (Highland at Staring). For king cakes (you'll get some lively debate on this one), I've always liked Baums the best (Perkins a few blocks past Bluebonnet)

For King Cakes I'm a Gambino's guy. They're just plain awesome.

I agree with BRMan about poboys...both Chimes and Sammy's are good. So is New Orleans Poboys and Gyros on Coursey near Sherwood.

Let me correct myself - BAUMS has really good cakes, while GAMBINOS has awesome king cakes. It is located on Goodwood between Tara Blvd and Airline Hwy. It has one of the best varieties of flavors/fillings.

In additon to the recommendations here regarding Po-boys, try Acme Oyster House as well. I also remember getting them at a place called Mandinos, and from what I gather they are no longer in BR, unless I'm mistaken. They moved here from N.O. right after Katrina and when I had one there, it was fabulous.

I would also suggest Tony's Seafood on Plank Rd.
