This store has about everything related to cajun life. Many gifts, including a lot of cajun spices, shirts, and some of the best pralines that I have eaten. Everything is quite pricey so don't expect a bargain!

They make pralines daily. Best store to buy cajun spices...Great assortment of Tabasco Products. Huge selection of local crafts. If you are shopping for Louisiana souvenirs this is the place to go.

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
