Although it's just a "general store", this place has a huge variety of things to look at and buy. We didn't try their pralines, but they were cooking fresh batches as we were perusing. The building itself is pretty cool to see and well decorated. We were greeted with friendly smiles and "hey, y'all"s, which was very nice. At one... More

This a great place to go to see and purchase local food, apparel, etc. They have every thing you can imagine. It is a wonderful place to go to do your souvenir shopping and not get the junk that you might get in the city.

This place was one time in the French Qtr at the top of Jackson Brewery. I do not know why they moved but glad they did.This place is full of South Louisiana themed gifts. The small cafe at one end of the store is super. The home baked pies, bread pudding and everything is fantastic. I really like the bread... More

It is open Monday-Saturday, and not only has any type of Louisiana gift item, the food is delicious. It is well worth a stop and the pralines are the best.

This place is amazing. Anything you could imagine from Louisiana is in this store. Plus some lagniappe (something extra) - friendly clerks, a free sample of pralines, and the delicious cafe in the back. For Geocachers, there's a cache nearby. And a bonus is that they have just acquired a new chef with numerous regional awards. My wife and I... More

The little cafe inside is good doesn't offer many things but good the store it self has many things but alittle pricey. I think if they offer more food and brought store prices down alittle they would have more business

This place has everything a passer-through might want. HOWEVER, it is quite overpriced. If you don't know where else to purchase these things I'd go here. The pralines are kind of hit or miss.

Just arrived to New Orleans? Looking for some help on things to see and do in the area? In need of some Cajun/Creole style gifts? Then Bayou Country store is your one-stop-shop for activity planning and souvenir shopping. Although this place does sell food, my friend and I came here in need of souvenirs during our vacation in New Orleans.... More
