Likely there is no better way to enjoy something sweet than to eat a praline. This confectionery provides one of the best to be had in New Orleans. Highly recommend all to visit this store to taste their product. Wow!

OMG! I stopped in and just the smells probably added pounds. But it was the best creamy pralines I tasted in NOLA. I got Chocolate Pralines, Original Praline, and Chocolate Toffee. Stop in and taste the decadence!

The pralines and other candies like the delicious Tortues are the best in the city! I regularly stop there for movie treats, as well as for thank-you gifts for hosts/hostesses. My favorites are the original creamy, but they're all good!

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
