“Best pralines in town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2009

We tried every praline store in town and these were the best! They also give cooking lessons which looked very interesting. I'll try that next time!

“Can't Stop Thinking About Their Pralines!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2009

I had pralines for the first time this week in NOLA and I fell in love! I wish I had brought more home with me. I found the service to be really helpful and nice as well. Not only are they great to eat but make nice inexpensive gifts too.

“Best Pralines in NOLA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2009

Pralines are the absolute best in NOLA and believe me I have tried them all!! Service is sometimes unfriendly, but the last time I went in they were nicer. Save your money and don't buy the other candy items, they are not worth the high cost.
