Louisiana Daily Photo: Alois J Binder

A McDonalds sits on the former site of the old Alois J Binder bakery on St Claude. I hope the Binder family received a handsome sum for the property.

At one point there were Binder bakeries scattered all over New Orleans but by the mid-70s the only one still operational was the shop on Frenchmen Street.

It’s still going strong and I try to get by there at least once a week to get a loaf of their good, crusty bread or a sweet treat.

The Binder family have been in the baking game in New Orleans since 1914.
