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.

My guy is native to Slidell. He helped clean things up in there after Katrina. Said he used to sit up on the roof and watch the national guard helicopters go in and out. Relaxed place, nice environment and very friendly people. There's much to look at and so many fun little things! Ohhh... 3 words... Mardi. Gras. Dip. Have... More

Found this place on the way home from New Orleans via Slidell. It kind of sneaks up on you, so be careful. Everything Louisiana. Awesome pralines, very friendly staff.

Stopped in while visiting the area. I love the hot sauce collections including the Tabasco charcoal chips! The pralines are a bit pricey, however did have to buy a couple to try. They have a good selection of t-shirts, so I had to have one of those too! The cafe was just reopening today and if we'd been closer to... More

We stopped here on our way out of New Orleans. The store is huge. They have cajun cooking supplies, jams, honey, souvenirs, cds of Louisiana music - just about anything you could want as a souvenir or gift. The workers are very friendly and helpful. We had a great time looking at everything. There is also a café which has... More

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
