The best King Cakes from New Orleans and Southeast Louisiana
We're back in a new location!
King Cake Hub returns January 6, 2021 to a new location! We've had a great partnership with the Mortuary over the last couple of years but our 2021 season will be based at the beloved Mid-City landmark Broad Theater! Located at 636 N Broad Street, the Broad has become an important neighborhood institution and we are excited to be partnering with them and their new outdoor event venue- the Broadside.
Our third season will feature over 60 varieties of your favorite king cakes from Gambino's, Hi Do, Bywater Bakery, Cannata's, Caludas, NOCCA, Sugar Love Bakery, Zuppardo's, Caywood and Randazzo's, plus new flavors of the super-yummy Epiphany King Cake and the return of Dragon Claw! Plus, we welcome Brennan's Restaurant, Gracious Bakery, Breads on Oak and (just announced!) Bittersweet Confections as brand-new bakery partners and are so excited about a new collaboration between NOCCA and Steve Himelfarb of Cake Cafe!
Plus, we'll celebrate Quarnival with a focus on curbside pickup and local delivery through DoorDash plus new restaurant partners (including Katie's & Gabrielle's) offering some of your favorite Mardi Gras dishes so you'll have everything you need to celebrate Carnival in place! Pre-ordering is now available for pick-up beginning January 6! Note that we do not offer shipping on any product.

One Week To Go!
One Month to Carnival 2021! Owner Will Samuels unveils the full king cake lineup and announces a new bakery partner!
Nutella Epiphany joins the daily lineup for 2021!
We knew we had a hit with our Epiphany King Cake when we sold out on the first day of release in 2019 and it has gotten even more popular with the release of last year's Cream Cheese and Praline flavors. In 2021, Nutella Epiphany joins the daily lineup! We are so proud of our collaboration with Gambino's Bakery and pleased and thankful by the response!

Carnival Kickoff and Countdown to Carnival!
Our 2021 Carnival Kickoff is coming up in a new location! We'll be at the Broadside, 600 N Broad Street, for a socially-distanced masks-required party! We'll celebrate the launch of the Carnival season with Benny Grunch and the Bunch, Professor Carl Nivale, and Grand Marshal Marty Graw (pictured at right) cutting the first piece of King Cake! Check out this great video from Nola.com and reserve your spot via Eventbrite as space is very limited due to COVID restrictions and social distancing guidelines. Note that there is a $5 charge per ticket (so we can accommodate if COVID tracking is needed) but you will get a $5 credit for each ticket purchased for use that day at the King Cake Hub. We'll see you January 6, 2021 from 8-10am!
We'll get a jump on things with our Countdown to Carnival Kickoff at the New Orleans Jazz Museum on Tuesday, January 5, 2021 from 5-6pm featuring jazz legend Wendell Brunious in concert! Stay tuned for more details.
