This last weekend we stopped by a new little cafe in Shelton called Queen Zuri New Orleans Delicacies.  The shop was too pretty to walk by and not stop in!  And we’re happy to say that the treats are just as pretty … and DELICIOUS … as they look.



Jeff and I really loved New Orleans when we visited two years ago, so we were excited to see that Queen Zuri was serving up some great staples from “the big easy”.  The first thing we noticed is that they had Cafe Du Monde coffee.  Amazinggg!!


So we grabbed coffee, a praline, and chocolate chip cookies.  Good choices!  Chocolate chip cookies are always a good “go to”, but the praline is something hard to find up here in CT.  It’s nice to try something different!

Then, the staff brought us out something special to try …. their Red Velvet Cupcake.  OMG good.  Just the right amount of sweetness.  The cake was light and crumbly topped with traditional cream cheese frosting.  It was perfection.


Nostalgic from its desserts to its decor, Queen Zuri Bakery takes you back to the warm feeling of your grandmother’s kitchen. From scrumptious cakes to pies, cupcakes and pralines, they’ve got something you can’t find anywhere else close by in Fairfield County.

Queen Zuri caters different types of events like showers and private parties, but you can buy their treats online.  Everything is baked fresh to order!
