Closed!!!
Jun 2021 • Couples
Advertised as open, but when we drove there, the place was closed. Sign said it was closed for the season. This is June 1. What is the season? Very disappointed. Should update website so people don't make the drive.

Bayou Country Store has closed.

The Store is out of business. Sorry to see it go, as they had a great selection of all things bayou. Can’t see a way to report the closure other than in a review.

Great Pralines and Gumbo
Mar 2019 • Solo
If you are heading out of N.O. Towards the East, or you are visiting Slidell, La, stop here. It is right off of I-10 and they have the BEST Pralines and Gumbo. It is a gift store and small restaurant but you can't go wrong eating there.

CLOSED?
May 2019
Stopped by after seeing all the good reviews but the place was closed at 4pm (supposed to be open until 5:30pm) and looked pretty desolate. Didn’t look in the windows but the run down look of the outside was enough for us to keep on moving...

The CIA's best kept secret
Mar 2019 • Couples
If your passing through and don't have time to stop and see the sights, you got to stop here. They seem to have it all. All the little gift ideas for young and old. When you just want a little something something to take home or send to friends and loved ones to say. Hey I was in Louisiana and you weren't.

About the CIA. My family has joked for years about this place that it was a CIA front for a Special Ops thing.

We have never seen it crowded. It doesn't look dimensionally correct inside vs. outside. I could go on but it's just funny to get people going about it.

Closed Permanently?
Feb 2019 • Family
I’m going to say this place is closed forever. My son and I went today looking for postcards and when we got there the doors were locked with signs that said, “Everything 25% off, cash and check only.” We walked to the side door by the parking area and there were bags of trash laying on the porch. We looked in through the window and there was no shelves, trash all over the floor, and not a soul in sight.

Unique Gifts
Jan 2019 • Friends
Need a unique gift representing Louisiana? Need really great pralines? Need a cookbook for Cajun or Creole recipes? Then this is the place for you. We stop every time we visit NOLA. I like to go in just to browse and they ship. If you stop in once, we guarantee you’ll stop in again.

Last Chance Stop
Oct 2018 • Couples
We've been stopping at this store on our way out of town for several years. It's kind of a last hoorah and stop for souvenirs, seasonings, etc.
Friendly and helpful staff, clean restrooms, and delicious pralines.

Favorite Place to Get Pralines!!!
Jul 2018 • Couples
If I ever happen to leave New Orleans, I always have an urge to stop here because their pralines are amazing! From mini pralines to creamy vanilla, chocolate, and the turtle ones (must try!) If you don't happen to get your fix while in the city this is great stop. The store is also very quaint and eccentric that there are many souvenirs that are sure to make your Louisiana experience authentic and worthwhile.
