The Bayou Country General Store is a little gem of a gift shop on the outskirts of Slidell near Lake Pontchartrain. I would plan a quick visit to walk through the store and peruse the gift shop. It has a wonderful bayou décor inside and the smell of freshly made pralines will make you hungry for a sample!

Drove to Slidell purposely to dine and shop at the Bayou Country Store. Planned to eat first then browse through the store because after an hour and a half drive, we were starving. Unfortunately, the cafe in the general store is looking for a new chef ☹️. So many things I wanted to buy but hunger got in the way and we ended up leaving without a full tour of the store.

We did however get a good recommendation for another place at the next exit. I do plan to go back to the store but I will call first if we plan to eat there. The menu looked great and reviews were promising but with a new chef, tastes and menu may change. Will update if I do eat there..

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.
