I've gone here many times because it's a very nice store to visit. They have all kinds of snacks and knick-knacks and New Orleans related gifts. My favorite thing to get there is this mix of seasonings that you can mix with sour cream to make Mardi Gras dip. It's one of the most delicious dips... In the back of... More

This place is amazing and has something for everyone, whether you just want to look, or are ready to lay down several hundred dollars on stunning artwork. You can find Cajun food, spices, cookbooks, art, kitchen supplies, decor and anything else you can think of. And while you're there, you can get some Cajun cooking too. A must see.

If you are looking for souviners this is the place, they have a large variety of items from the area, I heard that they have an online store as well, although I didn't use it. I think that their prices are normal for souviners.

You can find anything here. Prices were not bad. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Much easier than buying in the French Quarter.

We visited this place on our way back from a swamp tour. It is a nice store, but comparing prices for identical items we found in the french quarter, this store is approx 20 percent more for the exact same item. For this reason, would not recommend.
