Bite Into a Beignet at Bayou Bakery in Arlington

Plenty of Arlington locals name the Bayou Bakery as their favorite local stop for morning coffee and a quick bite to eat (vanilla-bean muffins and the house-made breakfast bars are both customer favorites). But this popular bakery offers much more than your standard coffee house. To start with, the menu has been created by award-winning chef David Guas (you may recognize him from television shows like American Grilled), and is unlike any other local coffee shop. 

Bayou offers full breakfast and lunch service, featuring New Orleans favorites like spicy andouille hot dogs, pimiento grilled cheese sandwiches, and (of course) sugar-dusted beignets. Starting at 4 pm Bayou Bakery also hosts a popular happy hour with plenty of wine (sold by the bottle and the glass) and southern snacks like fried peanuts, spiced pecans, and salted caramel popcorn. 

So gather up a group of friends and swing by to sample some Southern treats!
