The traditional pastries masterfully created by Jean-Luc Albin are some of Metairie's finest, and it's no surprise: the chef cut his culinary teeth in highly respected restaurants throughout France, and then continued to develop his talent in places like Bermuda, Los Angeles, and finally New Orleans. Maurice French Pastries is a regional staple, beloved by locals and tourists alike for its sugary snacks like petit fours and Chantilly cream fruit tarts, as well as its glittering king cakes and jaw-dropping croquembouche: a towering, cone-shaped cake made from puff pastry balls and caramel. If you manage to peel your eyes from the decadent display cases at the counter, there's a cozy nook of bistro-style tables so you can satiate your sweet tooth before heading out.
