Though NOLA is known nationwide for its brass bands and bayous, our city's baked goods often fall in the shadow of beignets. If king cake doesn't cut it for the rest of the calendar, grab today's deal for $20 to spend on fresh food and drink at Laurel Street Bakery for $10. From bagels to muffins to pies -- oh my -- this humble off-street bakery is as homegrown as it looks. Opening at 7 a.m. seven days a week, Laurel Street beckons with a rotating assortment of pillowy cream cheese danishes, tangy blueberry pies, and steaming poppyseed bagels fresh from the oven. For lunch, you'll find inventive sandwiches like The Caroline -- featuring homemade ricotta, fresh basil, grilled pears, and honey on raisin-walnut bread. Even those locals who boast nary a sweet tooth will find something to love here: smoked turkey sandwich with Jack cheese and caramelized onions on ciabatta, anyone?
