I love all their donuts, especially the plain ones. Actually I pop them in the microwave for 8 seconds or so with extra butter and YOU ARE IN HEAVEN! They taste like they just came out of the grease. Hate saying that word (grease), but I think just about everyone knows donuts are fried.

Whenever visiting our friends in Lafayette, my husband would always pick up a dozen for breakfast. Wish they had a store in Portland, OR area.

If you want the most delicious King Cake, you have to get it from Meche's. They have been open a looong time and the quality and expertise comes through in their delicacies. The lemon filled donuts are so delicious and well as the apple fritters-- both are my favorites. The blueberry/cream cheese filled king cake is my number one top... More

If you want them hot out of the oil, go in the morning, especially on Saturdays and Sundays. Guaranteed to be hot!

Meche's makes THE MOST DELICIOUS, fluffy and heavenly donuts and pastries. My favorite is the apple fritter. The best is to catch them early in the morning while they are still hot. I always pick up extra for my co-workers.

Every morning they have freshly baked items. Especially on weekends, lines are so long, the bakers and the counter ladies are rushing to serve the customers. Sometimes you have to... More
