I've been given the job of finding a good bakery to supply bread and various pastries for a conference in NOLA, taking place on a Saturday and Sunday in November. The conference will be in the French Quarter. We're willing to drive out of the French Quarter to pick these things up, but would prefer not to go too far, and would in fact prefer a delivery for those two days if possible. Ideally, we'd like pastries as well as coffee for 60 delivered, once or twice each day. But we'd settle for a great bakery we drive to. We'll go to Cafe du Monde to pick up beignets, but would like to offer some variety as well. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thank you so much.

Everyone swears by Gambino's, but I can't say too much about it except they do have good king cakes and doughnuts. Not too close to the Quarter, however. Good luck!

I have no idea if they cater or deliver, but their pastries were scrumptious!

Is your meeting in a hotel and if so, do they allow outside food? Many places have their own catering and don't allow outside food. Just wanted to mention it.

I 'second" Croissant d'Or!

Thank you to everyone who replied! I will check out both of these bakeries, and don't mind a little drive.
SouthernBelle, yes, we are allowed to bring in our own, but I appreciate your mentioning
this, as that's often not the case.

La Boulangerie is great and has several locations, all convenient to the FQ.

The Hotel might be a better choice for the coffee , if you want it fresh and hot . And they could replentish as needed .

Cake Cafe in the Marigny, walking distance from the eastern edge of the quarter, for pastries. Hailing from NYC, I had a hard time finding really great bread in this town. If its bread you want, then I would suggest La Boulangerie on Magazine St.
