Maple Street Bakery of Abita Springs LA

Peach Danish and oh so good.  Great fruit glaze combined with a wondrous baked dough, this place is a find.

The Maple Street Bakery & Cafe is located on Maple Street (duh) in Abita Springs off of LA59 north of I-12 near Covington, Louisiana.  I discovered this place when doing the post on the Abita Springs Cafe.  Sorry for showing you so little.  I only made one stop here, but will be back!

Abita Springs is a sleepy community first made famous from its spring water.  You drive four blocks in any directions, you are out of town.  This place and the outlying area boasts a brewery, a coffee-bean roasting plant, a water bottling plant, a restaurant, and a bakery ... a worthwhile stop if you live in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Covington or Slidell.

If you wait until 9 a.m., the drive from New Orleans is around 45 minutes.

Lemon Danish:

Don't you just want to put your face in that lemon curd.  Like I said the dough part is wondrous.  And I haven't even gotten to the icing yet.  I could easily gobble up two or three of these decadent delights.

Cream Danish:

This is a traditional favorite of the Danish pastries.  Cream cheese makes everything better especially if there is icing already on it.

Bucket List Items:

Oatmeal-Raison Cookies and they're not small.  Don't they look good!

Chocolate-Chip Cookies, the big kind.  And to think that the first chocolate chip cookie was an accident.  Not an accident, but Devine intervention.

Pastry Case:

This is what greets you when you enter the Maple Street Bakery: lemon danish, peach danish, fruit turnovers, petit fours, cheese danish, cherry danish, and a bunch of stuff on the bottom that I can't see. Don't you want to take one (or two) of everything home with you?
