EatLafayette Dish of the Day: Poupart's Strawberry Delight

by Kari Walker

Layers of cake, cream and berries to satisfy your sweet tooth

One of Lafayette's best pastry and baked goods shops has to be Poupart's. This long-standing icon is known for decadent cakes, breads and pastries.

Make time today to stop in and share a few delights with a friend over a cup of coffee. IND Eats suggests the Strawberry Delight - this slice of sweetness is layers of white cake, whipped cream, fresh strawberries and a powdered sugar dusting on top.

Clockwise: Poupart's Strawberry Delight, fruit tart and chocolate chip canoli

Another favorite is the chocolate chip canoli which is a pastry tube stuffed with a mascapone and chocolate chip mixture and also dusted with sugar.

Top off your afternoon delight with a fruit tart made from a pastry shell and custard and fresh glazed fruit.

Poupart's has locations on Pinhook Road and Downtown - you're never far from a stop for something sweet. Check out the lunch options as well if something savory strikes your fancy.
