Stopped here for pralines and they have a great choice in flavors. Hard to choose so got too many. Pralines do not keep well and turn to sugar in couple days no matter where you go. They are very good here, so eat up.

Extremely good pralines. I have tasted many pralines, but this gem in the French Quarter offers the best in taste and quality! Makes great gifts!

Very tasty and creamy pralines. Staff are friendly and happy for you to try lots of different samples. We bought the original ones in the end but the sweet potato ones were also very tasty.

We stopped in while walking around the French Quarter. Just about every type of candy you can think of. Friendly staff but most of the candies were already boxed up. Great for traveling or gifts but not for just buying & sampling. Clean , well...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
