Freret St. Po Boy and Donut Shop in New Orleans

Freret St. Po Boy and Donut Shop

New Orleans, LA

the store

I had heard that this place has the best donuts in town so I had to go check out this claim. This is definitely one of those hole in the walls. The prices are all really good (Budget Breakfast for $3.50 you get grits, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage and toast or biscuit). The po boys range from $6 to $12 (they have soft shell crab po boy!) It’s nice to see the original restaurants that have weathered the years on Freret St. get some new company with all the renovations of the neighboring buildings and new restaurants moving in (oooooo competition!)

the twist

Both donuts had that home-made taste to it and they were delicious! There wasn’t much space in here and there were a ton of locals eating breakfast and so I got my donuts to go. The service was very friendly and I will def be back to try one of those blue breakfast plates.

  1. Hey.
    While I am not a fan of doughnuts, I try to eat as healthy as possible, It is AMAZING to see Ferret Street keep on growing! I still remember when the street was nothing…Now everything from quality sushi to frozen yogurt has moved in. I am just real happy to see it is mainly local, mom n pop places.
