“Numero Uno for Pralines in NOLA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

I've frequented this unique establishment since point one on my many, many visits to
New Orleans over the past 10 years. Hands down, no contest, they offer the best pecan pralines one could imagine -& then some, in a variety of flavors. Plus, loads of made-before-your-eyes chocolate confections of all sorts. The secret to their success is freshness, quality ingredients & skilled candy makers. The affable staff makes makes you feel right at home. Stephanie, in particular, is like family at this point -a real doll!

“Excellent pralines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

While in New Orleans I kept hearing about how good pralines were. I stopped at this place just to check it out. It was a bit crowded and I had to wait in line but it was worth the wait. They have quite a few products and they offer you samples before you buy. The regular pralines, coconut pralines and rum pralines were my choices and they were all excellent. I highly recommend this place if you like sweets.

Delicious pralines. They give you free samples. Ask for the freshest ones they have.

“Yummy Pralines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Came here for their pralines, and we were not disappointed! They will give you a sample, so it's hard not to buy some. We got original, chocolate and rum. All were very good, however the rum was definitely my favorite!
