Saw it along the highway and went back just visit it. Cool little gifts and great customer service. Best part: they make 7 different types of pralines. We bought one of each. They are delicious. You can watch them make them right there!

Although a bit expensive, this store had a great selection of "Louisiana" themed items and some delicious pralines. We were looking forward to eating at the cafe but it is currently closed.

Had a great time in this store on vacation. They had t-shirts, magnets, POPCORN, and pralines. It was great fun and I wish we had had more time to shop, but might have ended up with no shopping money for cruise. Lol

Right off the highway, but you have to pass it to see it, then go back. Was surprised by what they had. Loved the candy, made right there. Had all kinds of gift items and cooking things. Would go back there again.

Fun, Louisiana gift shop in Slidell. Everything Cajun and low country as well as New Orleans. Everything from pickles, relishes, jams, to kitchen and other décor gifts, lamps, nautical theme and more. Fun to browse--lots to choose from.

The Bayou Country General Store is close to our office and when we have out of town guests, or when we travel we get local gifts from there.
