The cakes can be a bit pricey, but you definitely get the quality you pay for. My fiancee and I had the chocolate bombe and slice of doberge cake, and they were heavenly. Girl behind the counter was beyond friendly and helpful. This off-the-beaten-path location has not the normal look or feel of a bakery, but that s a good thing!
We live in Metairie and are really sick of the sorry excuse for cakes around here. Since my husband works in Hammond I asked him to find a red velvet cake around him to bring home for our daughters birthday. All I can say is YUMMY! The cake was moist and the cream cheese icing was not too cheesy or sweet...perfect. I owned a small custom cake business in the past and I am hard to impress! The cake was sooo good that I ordered an Itatian Cream Cake for her party today...can't wait to try it!
My son had his 4 year old birthday and wanted a Batman cake. I never was so pleased and amazed.This cake was so beautiful,everyone raved about it.Not only delicious,but gorgeous.I am from New Orleans and always get my cakes from the very popular Swiss confectionary and now i will only go here.Always very pleased!
Fabulous Wedding cakes. After planning a stressful wedding, I have to say that deciding on the cake was my favorite part. Anthony spent time with us to choose the flavors and design the cake. He sketched out the cake right there for us to see and quoted a price right away! We had a four tyred cake with three different flavors, plus a fabulous groom's cake! The groom's cake was in the shape of my husbands sports car and couldn't have looked better! Since our wedding was in Hammond, the delivery of the cake was included in the price.The cake was moist and delicious. Not at all like other wedding cakes I've tried. The entire cake was eaten at the reception.
Went to cocoa bean last week for a cake tasting for my wedding cake for April 2011. Let me just tell you that my mother, maid of honor and I were VERY pleased with the taste AND service! Chef Anthony sat with us for well over a hour and a half going into every detail about our future wedding cake and groomsmen cake. He drew us up a beautiful picture in 10 seconds of what he had in mind. You can go to places like Zoe's and pay out the wazoo ($6.50 a slice for the exact same taste and quality of cocoa bean) I can PROMISE you that you wouldnt be disappointed! Delicious!
A friend referred me to The Cocoa Bean for my wedding cake. Chef Anthony and his wonderful staff went out of their way making sure our cake was not only gorgeous, but delicious too. We also had him do the grooms cake, which was another HUGE hit at the reception. The attention to detail was beyond belief. Needless to say, ALL of our cakes come from The Cocoa Bean now.....and it's well worth the hour we have to travel just to go pick it up!!
I just got married and Cocoa Bean did the cake. It was outstanding. Everyone loved it, especially me. It was exactly what I wanted as far as appearance, and the cake itself was the best I've had at a wedding. I love watching cake decorating shows on food network, so I had pretty high standards for what I wanted in my own wedding cake. It was even prettier than I had imagined. If you're planning a wedding in the area, definitely give Anthony a call. You won't regret it. I can't wait to get the pictures back from the wedding so I can see the cake again.
