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.

This is a great bakery....they do a french bread load in the shape of a crab or an alligator...some others too.....that is a big hit at partys and family dinners. I cut the bread along the top...pull out some of the bread..and stuff it with shrimp or crab concoctions. There pastrys are good too.

Absolutely amazing!!! The Banh Mi (Vietmanese Poboys) are the best I have ever had. It's fresh and loaded with yummy vegetables and well season meats. My favorites are the Xa Xiu (Roast Pork) Banh Mi, Yuca Pie and Vietnamese Iced Coffee. Oh and the pastries. Flakey turnovers filled with fruit and cream cheese.... just heavenly. Friendy service and cheap eats. Definitely Biloxi's finest.
