LeJeune's Bakery is a historic bakery located at 1510 Main Street in Jeanerette, Louisiana.

Opened in 1884 by Oscar J. LeJeune as the Old Reliable City Bakery, the building underwent a major remodelling in 1918, when O.A. LeJeune and Walter LeJeune, Sr. purchased the bakery from Oscar. The building was renamed LeJeune's some time between 1918 and 1934.[2][3]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 22, 2003.[1]

The historic bakery is still selling its french bread, ginger cakes and garlic bread as of 2019.
