I finally had a chance to check out Bayou Bakery in Arlington, VA. I’ve been dying to go. It’s located in Courthouse, across from Summers.
I went on a weekday morning, and it wasn’t crowded at all. I ordered coffee, two orders of beignets, a chocolate croissant, and a biscuit with bacon.
I’ve only been to New Orleans once, and it was just for a layover. We didn’t have time to get any beignets. However, these were fantastic! My girlfriend has eaten them in New Orleans and she really enjoyed them as well. For $3, you get an order of three.
I didn’t get to try the chocolate croissant, but I’ve been told that it was great as well. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the coffee. The biscuit was good and flaky, and the bacon was as delicious as it always is.
Overall, this is a great place to stop in and grab breakfast. I am looking forward to coming back and grabbing dinner and a pitcher of Abita.
