Yes, there’s a little bit of France in Biloxi and it’s not far off the beach, near the casinos. It’s Le Bakery & Café, a French-Vietnamese establishment that makes the best pastry and French bread along the Mississippi Coast. You’d have to drive to New Orleans to find a bakery as good.
Their fruit-filled pastries are light and flaky and luscious. They also make cakes, cookies, tarts, Asian desserts and smoothies. Le Bakery serves Po Boys on their French bread with variations of pork – pork meatballs, pork sausage – and chicken. These sell for about $3, a bargain.
This is not a pretentious place; it’s basically a bakery with a few tables for those who want to eat sweets or a small lunch or can’t bear the drive home with the wonderful aroma of Le Bakery’s delights floating out the bag throughout the car.
