Lovely little shop and the oldest candy shop in New Orleans apparently. Friendly and engaging staff and tasters are offered to tempt your pallet....which we we and purchesed Pralines which are made on the premises.

Hands down the chewy pralines are the best! 1/2 dz for $11.99. Yes they are small but these are the ones we prefer over aunt sally's 1/2 dz $16.99. Try Laura's chewy pralines and you will not be disappointed!

What a great selection!! Got a great assortment of treats to take home (and to sneak while on our diet). The pralines are milky smooth.

This little candy shop offers fudge, truffles and other candies. It's conveniently located on Chartres and it was right down the street from our hotel. We always stop by to get a treat and bring a gift home for my mother-in-law.

We walked by this place and saw praline samples and CANDY. We are sweet fiends so wandered in to taste. The flavor and freshness was amazing! They were not prepackaged or travel ready so bought enough for one day since we were flying out soon....More

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
