There are countless places to get Pralines in New Orleans, but I think Loretta's Authentic Pralines has the best in town. These tasty treats are obviously very sweet, but sometimes I find the sugar a little overwhelming. I like Loretta's because they aren't quite as sweet as the ones you'll find everywhere else. The staff is also very friendly, and the price is right. Worth checking out!

This small praline shop in the French Market is making the best pralines in New Orleans. They are big, oval mounds of deliciousness!

Having been on a mission to taste all the pralines in the area, I really liked the creamy texture of Loretta's. They have great flavor and melt in your mouth. If pralines aren't your thing, they also make yummy pies.

Be sure to take a box or two home with you!

The counter attendants are always quick and polite. I have a friend who says these pralines are the only "real" pralines, so I always stop to grab a few when I'm in town. I'm not always into so much sugar, but I'll eat part of one every so often. They are very good.

We stopped at the market to grab some last minute souvenirs and wished we had more time in NOLA. A few older customers were standing in front of Loretta's and told me they were THE best pralines and they drove 5 hours to get them.

So I brought home a box of 6. Original, coconut and rum. So creamy and delicious. Our favourite was the original. They have pralines in the display to enjoy right away but when I said I was bringing them home for family, the lovely lady behind the counter offered to package pralines that were sealed in cello and boxed for travel. Perfect.

I also had a coffee and a shoe sole. Puff pastry with cinnamon and sugar rolled throughout.

There was a beautiful selection of pies and cookies. I wished I could bring more home. A must try when you are wandering the French Market in NOLA!!

Ok pralines with decent prices. It's nice that it's outside and not very busy like some stores. Has a variety to choose from, but the original is my favorite.

Beignets aren't my thing. I got the praline stuffed ones for a friend's birthday and ate one cause I got hungry waiting for her. OMG! Before I knew it I ate the whole bag and had to go back and restock. These were amazing. Highlight of our trip!!!! An absolute must!!!!

By far one of the best beignets I have ever tasted. It was delicious! Especially filled with her chocolate filling! The crust is so flaky. And her Sunrise Muffin, her healthy muffin was the best! I went by everyday while in NOLA. Wish I could have tried everything! And no line!!!!!

They have the best pralines in town. The praline beignets are superb. They only reason I'm giving a 4 instead of a 5 is because of lack of preparation. I believe if you open at 9 every menu item should be ready. The grease should not be cut on at 9 if it takes 15 mins to get hot

I've been a fan of the pralines for YEARS and then when the praline stuffed beignets came along I was HOOKED! Since moving from NOLA, I make it a point to find the booth at Jazz fest. I was so excited to find it today but saddened that she used a different dough this year. It totally changed that beignet texture I was craving. Pralines still amazing. Hope she'll bring back the other dough next year🤞

I liked the praline stuffed beignets here but this may not be too everyone's liking.they are syrupy sweet so depends on your tastes.the beignet itself was tasty though as well.I actually preffered it much more than du monde personally.it was much more lighter and airy.

Ok, I just gotta share. I of course was planning on eating beignets at all the regular places and just happened to be here and tried a praline and decided to try a beignet also (prepare the palette and start off slow you know)..turns out now that I've tried the others..this one is actually the best! Soft and divine from the very first bite..undoubtedly the best beignet to rule them all. Yes it costs twice as much but it's more than twice as good so you more than get what you pay for.

I've been going to this creole styled praline store for years. It's very friendly and Christian-owned. I find some of the quotes and reminders super-encouraging. You can get other things but the confectionery is delicious.

Come here for beignets! They’re so, so good and fresh. It’s ~$7 for three and they have just traditional ones if that’s what you’re looking for. They accept cash and card with $5 minimum. I didn’t try the pralines but it’s what everyone else in line was there for if that’s what you’re searching for!

Bait and switch

I don’t like to give a bad reviews, but a day later and I feel cheated.

Picked out half a dozen pralines at the counter. Lady who picked them out said she would go in back and pack them in a box. Thoughtful. Came back with a sealed box and was told that the different flavors were labeled. Late to find out, and my disappointment, the pralines I chose were switched with smaller, pre-packaged sealed pralines. Shameful! If you do order pralines, just ask them to be handed to you. Don’t allow the bait and switch with older smaller pralines.

Didn't miss Cafe Du Monde at all! We stumbled upon Loretta's by accident, and are so glad we did. We had the traditional beignets, which were made fresh upon ordering, and so delicious. She had several other sweets on display, but we were too full too try them. Next time!

Really great beignets! Not the traditional dough, and nothing like Cafe du Monde. However, I prefer this version. Also, really nice ladies behind the counter. This was my next to last meal in the Big Easy and I wasn’t disappointed!

I tried beignets from Cafe Du Monde and Cafe Beignet and let me just say, this place blows both out of the water. Traditional is the way! They were so flaky, soft and airy and incredibly delicious. I’m sad I only came here once during my trip but I’ll make sure to come back some day! I will dream about these

We got the original beignets, and praline beignets. Both were AMAZING! Light and airy with good flavor, perfectly fried. Loretta's is significantly better than Cafe Du Monde, which were a bit too thick and doughy... it's not even a close comparison. Loretta's is amazing.

Skip the tourist trap begniets and walk a little further down into the French Market for praline stuffed fried doughy goodness. Also make time to check out the shop up on N. Rampart for an expanded menu. Can't go wrong with Loretta's!

The praline beignets are off the charts. Skip the regular beignets spots and try this. You won't be disappointed.

The beignets from Loretta's are the best in the entire city. A million times better than cafe du monde, and this is coming from a native New Orleanian. Loretta herself is a joy and exudes positivity, as does the rest of the staff. Chocolate filled beignets=THE BOMB. Once you go Loretta's you'll never go back.

I like beignets, but I love Loretta's chocolate filled beignets! The apple turnovers are delicious, too! You can't go wrong with anything you choose at this shop!

I was planning on going to Cafe Du Monde for beignets but the line was sooooo long so I googled another place and ended up here!! No regrets! So light, fluffy and delicious. I went to cafe Du Monde the next day just to compare and I definitely would chose Loretta’s over and over again!

This place has that flaky layer style beignets that they fill. I had a plan non-filled one and it was amazing. They also make them fresh to order so they are always warm.

The praline stuffed beignet is one of the tastiest treats you can have while in New Orleans.
