When we say New Orleans, we usually mean the greater New Orleans area, which includes seven parishes. In this case, however, we asked readers to nominate their favorite king cake bakers within the city limits.

Below, you will find our poll and we invite you to vote for the nominated Crescent City bakeries.

This was part of our effort to find the best kings cakes by geography. You can find a poll asking about North Shore bakeries here and one for bakers in East Jefferson here.

(Unfortunately, we did not receive enough nominations to include a poll for West Bank bakers or bakers in the outlying parishes, you can find the nominees here and here, respectively.)

You have until Sunday (Feb. 12) night to vote in the poll below. We'll announce a winner on Monday.
