Good Company Cafe

This south Huntsville bakery will have mini king cakes in house through out the Carnival Season! In the cafe, if you purchase a mini and find a baby in it, you can get 10%, off a large king cake. Minis come in cinnamon only. Their large cream cheese and pecan praline king cakes are available for online ordering. Please remember they are a small batch kitchen, so we limit four minis to be purchased in-house at a time.
