About us

Parkway Bakery and Tavern first opened for business in 1911, and it has been a New Orleans icon ever since. Charles Goering, Sr., a German baker, built Parkway on the corner of Hagan and Toulouse in Mid-City New Orleans and ran it until 1922, when Henry Timothy, Sr. purchased it with the intent of continuing to run it as a neighborhood bakeshop. 

Back in those days, every neighborhood in NOLA had a bakery on the corner. Over the next seven years, Timothy, Sr. established Parkway’s reputation for delicious and fresh bread, donuts, and his famous Seven Sisters sweet rolls. But this was just the beginning of Parkway’s innovative and historic legacy.

More about us


Parkway has been a family-owned and operated business since 1911, and owner Jay Nix has continued that tradition since the day he purchased Parkway from the original family in 1995. Today, the #PeopleofParkway are Jay’s relatives who work there, as well as the entire Parkway team member family; folks from all walks of life. The last ingredient: you! Every time our global community of friends visits Parkway for food, drinks, and friendship, they add to our story with the memories they share–in person and online. Follow #PeopleofParkway on social media to learn more about the Parkway family–and use the tag to share your own Parkway memories. Thanks for stopping by, friend!
