When you walk in to this store, you are immediately ensconced into the world of fine tobacco. People rolling cigars, a smoking area, a huge walk-in humidor. Amazing.
Te employees are very knowledgeable about their product and ask the right questions to get you the right cigar. The prices are not outrageous for the product.
Well worth the trip here!

Pros: master cigar rollers rolling the cigars as you walk in. leather furniture. great mood. beer/liquor sold next door. Get the Tres Hermanos cigar or the Big Easy.
Cons: no beer sales, but theres a place next door. It smells like cigars. lol. if you don't like that, then don't go in.

Great place to pick up some cigars and see actual cigar making when in New Orleans. I recommend the Panatelas with Connecticut shade wrapper. Petra rolled our cigars and they smoked almost as good as a Cuban. Remember, it’s not a crime to smoke a cigar!

I've visited here many times. They hand-roll their own cigars in the front of the store, and the employees are always very polite and helpful. The cigar prices are a little inflated, like most prices in and around the French Quarter, but that's to be expected. The average cigar is around $8 to $10. But every other shop that I've visited in the Quarter marks up their cigars so much, that's about what you'll spend at any of them.

When I'm visiting NOLA, I always stop in and pick up a sample pack in a neat little cedar box, and smoke one in the front of the store. It has tables that look out onto Decatur Street, and there's a box of playing cards and board games to pass the time. They used to offer free coffee, but I didn't see it being offered on this most recent trip. The front of the store is entirely open to the outside, so it's a good place to get out of the heat, but still enjoy a fresh open-air feel.

The cigars have always been well made and smoked smoothly.

We're Canadian so can go to Cuba for the best cigars in the world. But...you know that you can get a decent cigar rolled in New Orleans for a reasonable price, too. Go to where they are rolling, grab a beer next door and sit down and smoke. The folks are extremely friendly as well in the factory. Enjoy!!
