Where is the best place to order a Buche de Noel or French Yule Log in Houston? I've ordered from French Gourmet Bakery and La Madeline in the past but have not been happy with it.

      Best pastries and baked goods in Houston and reasonably priced compared to everywhere else. If you remember, try their La galette des Rois around Mardi Gras. Just fabulous!!! I think if you call they will make you one any time but they keep them made in February through early March usually.

      I've also tried FG, LM and Andre's but also not happy with their versions. Try Three Brothers Bakery. They use butter cream filling. If you prefer mousse, try the Acadian Bakers or World Catering. You'll have to pre-order with the later.
