This bakery offers samples and consistently good pastries. I purchased a traditional king cake, a lemon pie, a rum ball, a carrot cake petit four, and a pumpkin loaf! It was all fresh and delicious! They have a few tables and chairs inside the bakery and they even sell the Mardi Gras guide.

I cannot describe how good this bakery is and honestly I can't even begin to try as no words but let me explain it this way. I'm one of the top ten reviewers in the world on TripAdvisor and I've only given two other 5 star ratings in my life. One of which was the Hotel Quissisana on the Isle of Capri in Italy. That should tell you something. Btw, get a slice of the white cake. Swear to God it's laced with crack.


Go to Gambino's is like going to a REAL bakery. Staff and owners are so accommodating. Everything we purchase from Italian cookies to small cakes to the best pralines are always worth going to Gambino's when we come to town. Whatever you try it is the very best.

I have been coming here for years, and it’s the only place to purchase my king cakes - the best in the city. As well as everything they make!

If I could give Gambinos a 10 I would. I picked up my granddaughters wedding shower cake on Dec 1 and it was absolutely beautiful. Exactly like the picture I brought them. And the clincher was that it tasted awesome. So many compliments were given on the cake. Thank you so much Gambinos.

The ladies here are outstanding. I got my mom's specialty black forest cake made here as well as her other favorites in the past, and they have ceased to amaze me. The prices are hefty but it's worth it when wanting the perfect cake. It's moist and delicious, so the quality is great. The bakers and decorators really work with you to make sure you have the perfect image for your cake. I'm very impressed with the overall taste and appearance of their goods. Also, their cupcakes are to die for!!

I love this place year round! Of course we went to get a King Cake, I like the Original one! It is so good, we also go a small cake was like a big Pettit Four. Moist and beyond delicious, Go in and try a few different things me and my family did. I promise you will be back and back. SUPPORT LOCAL AND ENJOY
