Aunt Sally's is the authentic purveyor of all things New Orleans. Since 1935, our specialty is in creating our delicious, hand poured Creole pralines.

We make a variety of pralines, hand crafted with the finest locally sourced ingredients, and slowly cooked in old fashioned copper pots.

Aunt Sally's has two convenient locations in New Orleans. Our newest store, along the streetcar line at 750 St. Charles Avenue, is designed with the charm of old New Orleans. Located in a restored 1920's building, and part of rapidly developing Lafayette Square and Arts District neighborhood, the new building serves as our headquarters. It is also a modern, state-of-the-art, 21st century facility; making the same wondrous products we've delighted taste buds with for nearly 80 years.


750 St. Charles Avenue is also the home of our brand new, first-of-its-kind in New Orleans, Praline Tasting Tour. During the one hour in-store tour, visitors get to savor the smells, tastes, and delights of watching our pralines being made. We also cover the history of New Orleans from around 1935 to present day; the family that created, and continues to run, Aunt Sally's, and the final half of the tour culminates in a mega-tasting of all our Pralines.

Our French Quarter location, at 810 Decatur Street in the Historic French Market, highlights our history, and showcases our pralines and New Orleans merchandise to the millions of people who visit the city each year. Conveniently located next to Cafe Du Monde, the store is just steps away from Jackson Square.

I had chosen this particular praline shop due to reviews on this page. Don't get me wrong it was nice and staff was friendly. But I don't see anything that made it a standout and set it apart from other praline shops in the area

Frequent visitor or past resident (based on knowledge and recommendations) advised us that this place had the 'best' pralines in town. Well we're not sure if they are the best, as when we experienced them they were pretty darn good and we were very satisfied so never sought any other kinds. Very yummy.

Aunt Sally's was our go to for pralines years ago & we used to buy them from the window hot and just made. They were wonderful. Now they are all over the city and cost much less than what you can buy in the quarter. The praline we bought at Sally's doesn't taste anything like the samples they have &... More

Every vacation to New Orleans must include a trip to Aunt Sally's! This is my 5th time here and they are simply the best pralines anywhere. They have multiple samples, and while they are all delicious, the original are our favorites. We bought 2 6 pack boxes to bring home. The only thing I don't like is that it seems... More

HAVE to have Aunt Sally's pralines when I am in New Orleans. The regular original is a bit dry and the flavored ones are okay - but the BEST ones are the CREAMY ORIGINAL. it's like heaven in your mouth. Don't miss these - they are DELICIOUS!

We went by and tried pralines at different places but these were the best. I especially loved the banana fosters creamy pralines. There are samples out to try which helped me decide which ones I eventually bought. Besides the pralines, there are all kinds of food products, kitchen accessories, cook books, and art. There is even a small area that... More

A shop to walk in and experience just to say you've been. Extremely friendly, polite staff willing to answer any questions you have. Will fulfill any praline needs you have as well as kitchen goodies, hot sauces, tabasco sauces, handmade soaps, and other local goodies as gifts for friends and family or a perfect take home memory of NOLA for...

There are pralines and then there are Aunt Sally's pralines! They offer free samples of their many varieties. I love the original but they have so many other types.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
