LeJeune's Bakery is a historic Louisiana bakery located and operating at 1510 Main Street, Jeanerette.[2]

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.[3]

The building was renamed LeJeune's some time between 1918 and 1934.,[4][5] and added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 22, 2003.[1]
