Wanted to buy a t shirt, you have your choice if you wear a s, m, or xxxl. Cafe hours from 11 to 4, we were there at 2 and the cafe was closed. The woman making candy was friendly but the other employee was rather hareful. We were the only two people in the store, very desolate

Right off the highway, but you have to pass it to see it, then go back. Was surprised by what they had. Loved the candy, made right there. Had all kinds of gift items and cooking things. Would go back there again.

Fun, Louisiana gift shop in Slidell. Everything Cajun and low country as well as New Orleans. Everything from pickles, relishes, jams, to kitchen and other décor gifts, lamps, nautical theme and more. Fun to browse--lots to choose from.

The Bayou Country General Store is close to our office and when we have out of town guests, or when we travel we get local gifts from there.

I have lived in Louisiana for over 30 years and love this store. I have bought things for my home as well as gifts. From original paintings to hand towels to pralines. You can find many locally made items there. They have a great web site too. I bring visitors there all the time and they find many treasures too.

Bayou Country has great gifts for visitors and locals alike. From pelican statues to tee shirts and fresh made pralines, this little store has something unique for everyone. I often buy gifts from home to give my son's family in Tampa, since he moved away after graduating from LSU. He loves the cute items for Saints fans and Tiger fans.... More
