You will LOVE the way you feel...

when you dine in AND you will LOVE the way you make others feel when you give the gift of Loretta's Authentic Pralines and sweets - these REALLY ARE THE BEST in New Orleans. Around here we call them "PRAH-leens" and we know that Loretta Harrison does it right. She's even the official praline maker at Jazz Fest. I met my dear 2nd mother Loretta when I visited New Orleans nearly a decade ago. I was shadowing a different local every day for a week to better understand the unique vibe of the city for a book I wrote. Mark and Brenda Rosenbaum who are art glass blowers shared their best experiences and Loretta's was one of my favorite stops. 

This beautiful lady makes all her sweets by hand (there's no app or machine for that) and you can taste the difference. You won't find a creamier praline in New Orleans. The praline-infused beignets (French donuts) and King Cakes (during Carnival) are so worth the visit to either the Frenchmen Street café location or the smaller shop in the French Market. Or visit LorettasPralines.com and have them delivered right to your door.

Come by the café on fish-fry Fridays for lunch and you may see my motorcycle parked out front. - Stephen
