Did you know, that the idea for Buttermilk Drop Bakery existed long before they opened their doors? The seed was planted with the opening of Canal Street Bakery and Deli in 2001, but development was shortly put on hold with the impact of hurricane Katrina in 2005. A few years later, the owners of the original bakery came together in collaboration with baker Dwight Henry to bring a new twist to an old favorite pastry, the buttermilk drop. After the recipe was perfected, owners named Henry as their head baker and opened the doors of the Buttermilk Drop Bakery located in the historical neighborhood of Treme in 2008. Since then, the Buttermilk Drop Bakery has received many accolades for its perfected renditions of classic baked goods including their award winning king cakes, melt in your mouth donuts, and of course the timeless buttermilk drop. Due to such a high demand for their product, owners of the bakery have embarked on the endeavor of expanding their business and will be opening a new location on Elysian Fields in the coming months.
