I continue to stop at Laura's on every New Orleans visit, and couldn't stop myself on my last visit in May 2017 either. I thought I'd be able to keep myself out of the store but I failed miserably. My fellow French Quarter enthusiast/partner in...More

The pralines were absolutely to die for and they have lots of generous free samples. And who can beat 30cent postcards?

Great candy and the woman who helped us was very friendly. Great place to shop and the pralines (especially the Creole Pralines) are special. All the chocolates are wonderful.

There are a number of candy shops in the Quarter, but this one is definitely the best. The staff, especially Dwayne, are helpful in pointing you in the right direction and getting you swift service. The Rum Pralines are a must buy.

The Creamy Prailine Fudge is good, but the Traditional Fudge my wife makes is better than their Chocolate Fudge. Their Toffee is good, but, again, as good as my wife makes. The Milk Chocolate Truffle is wonderful. My wife doesn't make truffles.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
