Wasn't sure this place was open when we arrived. There were only two cars in a huge parking lot. The store is neat and clean, but a lot of open space, like they have more room than things to sell. They do have the advertised...More

This store has about everything related to cajun life. Many gifts, including a lot of cajun spices, shirts, and some of the best pralines that I have eaten. Everything is quite pricey so don't expect a bargain!

The Bayou Country General Store is a little gem of a gift shop on the outskirts of Slidell near Lake Pontchartrain. I would plan a quick visit to walk through the store and peruse the gift shop. It has a wonderful bayou décor inside and...More

They make pralines daily. Best store to buy cajun spices...Great assortment of Tabasco Products. Huge selection of local crafts. If you are shopping for Louisiana souvenirs this is the place to go.

Saw it along the highway and went back just visit it. Cool little gifts and great customer service. Best part: they make 7 different types of pralines. We bought one of each. They are delicious. You can watch them make them right there!

Although a bit expensive, this store had a great selection of "Louisiana" themed items and some delicious pralines. We were looking forward to eating at the cafe but it is currently closed.

Had a great time in this store on vacation. They had t-shirts, magnets, POPCORN, and pralines. It was great fun and I wish we had had more time to shop, but might have ended up with no shopping money for cruise. Lol
