It may feel like we just celebrated New Years, but we’re already looking forward to February and all the Mardi Gras festivities that it’ll bring—including king cake.

We may not be in New Orleans, but there’s still plenty of Mardi Gras spirit here in North Alabama. Here are 10 Huntsville-area spots where you can get king cake pastries, lattes, martinis and more.

1. Mason Dixon Bakery

Looking for a king cake that everyone can eat? Mason Dixon offers a gluten-free version as well as a new dairy-free option this year. Be sure to call in your order before they’re gone!

2. Dragon’s Forge Cafe

3. The Camp at MidCity

The Camp is the place to go for Mardi Gras in Huntsville this year. So, of course they have to have authentic king cake. They’ve got the Manny Randazzo variety straight from New Orleans.

4. PJ’s Coffee

PJ’s Coffee has its roots in New Orleans, so they have to bring the Mardi Gras festivities to their new Madison location. They’ve got three kinds of king cake lattes (King Cake Velvet Ice, King Cake Latte and King Cake Cold Brew with Sweet Cold Foam) as well as the pastry itself.

5. The Moon Bakeshop

The Moon Bakeshop always brings unique flavors to classic pastries, and the king cake is no exception. They use brioche and panettone doughs with hints of orange, almond and vanilla, wrap it around blackberry jam and top it with cream cheese glaze. As with many of The Moon’s items, these will sell out quickly!

6. Edgar’s Bakery
