These are the best donuts I've ever had in my life. Big, moist, dense, and with just the perfect amount of icing. Kolaches are amazing, and there are a huge variety of them. I recommend the BBQ pulled pork. The king cakes are basically made out of donuts and filled with donut icing. Chocolate is my favorite don't miss out... More

A quick stop into Meche's Donuts is a MUST when you find yourself in Lafayette for the day or overnight. The donuts are the best first thing in the morning with a hot cup of coffee!!!'

Delicious donuts. I thought it was odd that they weren't labeled, but we figured it out. There was such a line and the donuts kept getting refreshed by the bakers. The coffee was horrible, but apparently that's the local brand. Next time I'd have them with milk.

The plain glazed donuts melt in your mouth!!! Get them when they are hot out of the oven or warm them at home. Chocolate covered are my second favorite.

The BEST DOUGHNUTS I've ever eaten, hot and moist with ice cold milk.....yep. I've moved to North Louisiana and there are no Meche's Doughnuts here. It is one of my mandatory destinations whenever I go home to visit. You can't even come close to how awesome these doughnuts are! Love my Meche's!
