Buttermilk Drop Bakery Reviews

Sherri Edman

This place is amazing. The regular donuts were fine, but the buttermilk drops are truly the star of the show. We got original and red velvet flavors. The red velvet is very good; the original is astonishingly delicious.

The appearance of the place may be off putting; don’t let it. It’s open and the man behind the counter was so kind and friendly.

I told my son that this bakery is exactly representative of New Orleans: it doesn’t always look open or even functional at first glance. But do a little investigating and you will end up with some delicious food and find friendly, kind, welcoming people.

The food is so good I ordered bacon egg and cheese croissant and fried chicken wings omg the food was delicious like grandma cooking. I went next door and also brought donuts balls the best donuts ever…. Food so good will be back when we visit New Orleans again..

Ordered through doordash and the order was wrong. It was 6:30 am top of the morning. I recieved someone else’s food. Wasn’t what I ordered. The eggs looked runny. The donuts didn’t look fresh to say it was top of the morning. Ordered 2 cranberry juice and they took the money and bagged 2 waters instead. I could go on but long story short I’m never eating there again.

Got the pancake breakfast. Very reasonably priced. Food was very filling. I would come here again

I don’t understand all the five star reviews. My breakfast this morning was horrible. I ordered shrimp and grits with a honey butter biscuit. The shrimp and grits were very bland, under seasoned and the grits were watery so were the eggs. The honey butter biscuit arrived with no honey on it. I’ll never order from here again and I don’t recommend.

Good fresh donuts for dirt cheap, fantastically tasty. I’ve never tried any of their other options, but the one thing I do wish they had is a slightly wider selection of flavors. They never seem to have anything with chocolate glaze, for instance.

On the other hand, the donuts they do have are top notch, as are the cinnamon rolls.

I love this place most times.
It’s Hit or Miss.

The donuts and buttermilk drops are inconsistent when it comes to the flavor. Sometimes the glaze taste like lemon or 7Up other times it just tastes like straight powdered sugar.

Sometimes the buttermilk drops have a hint of vanilla flavor some other times they just taste doughy and bland.

When it comes to the food side, they’re inconsistent as well. Your grits might be creamy today and water it tomorrow.

Also, I hate the way that they serve the food. They take and make all of their doordash orders while you’re standing in line waiting to order. It’s a possibility that they will run out of food while you’re standing in line.
(This has happened on two different occasions)

Either way, I’ll keep trying until they give me a reason not to.

Side note: the customer service is pretty decent.

Came to New Orleans on vacation. Wanted to try something different and glad we did. Got donuts and breakfast. Food was amazing. Way better than back home in Florida. If I lived here I would be a regular!

Paul Bobo

Amazing drops and donuts. But their breakfast rice with egg and sausage is one of my favourite things in New Orleans, don’t forget the hot sauce too.


Food 4.5
The buttermilk drops are definitely worth the visit – the dough is better than a regular donut. The shrimp and grits were my favorite – it came w/ eggs and seasoned hash/potato. Chicken and waffle had mixed reviews from my family.

Service 2-4
The donut place had wonderful service, super nice young lady. The food place was ok – they forgot our order (wasn’t even busy…)
