Amore Bakery and Café, Gretna, LA Report #375

Just last weekend I was next door to this place having an excellent Mexican lunch at El Gato Negro. I walked by this place when I left and thought about stopping in, but I was too stuffed to even eat a pecan. BUT!! Even though I don’t have much to write on, I made a… Continue reading Amore Bakery and Café, Gretna, LA Report #375

Ancora, New Orleans, LA Report #354

Last Monday we tried to go to Mark Twain’s for pizza, but they were closed! I didn’t know they were closed every Monday. I’ve been wanting pizza ever since. New Orleans isn’t a pizza town like New York or Chicago. And of course not like Italy. But I heard this place had a huge pizza… Continue reading Ancora, New Orleans, LA Report #354

Candyland Cottage & Ice Cream Shop, Scott, LA. Report #303

  After stuffing myself at Billy’s Boudin, I felt the need for dessert.   This place was conveniently located right next door!  If there’s some kind of candy you are having trouble finding, they might have it here.  I hadn’t seen any cigarettes since I was maybe 7 years old?  Didn’t think they still made… Continue reading Candyland Cottage & Ice Cream Shop, Scott, LA.

I love the lights hanging… Continue reading Sweet Rolls, Metairie, LA Report #223

Dairy Dip, Belle Chasse, LA Report #78

    Louisiana is shaped like a boot.  If you want to drive down to the “toe” of the boot you’d be driving down Louisiana Hwy. 23 and you’d pass Dairy Dip.  About 70 miles later you’d hit the Gulf of Mexico.  If you don’t grab a bite to eat here, there’s a BBQ joint… Continue reading Dairy Dip, Belle Chasse, LA Report #78

Rita’s, West Palm Beach, FL Report #20

I finally escaped the New Orleans area for a little vacation.  In southeast Louisiana we have snowballs, or snowcones as some might say, but we don’t have frozen custard.  Lord I wish we did! I had been to a Rita’s before in Alabama and loved it.  The Italian ice and frozen custard are utterly delicious.… Continue reading Rita’s, West Palm Beach, FL Report #20

The Creole Creamery, New Orleans, LA Report #19

Cute, clean little place with the feel of an old time ice cream parlor.  This is the Lakeview location so if you’re enjoying lunch or dinner in any one of the numerous restaurants in the area you may want to stop here for dessert.  There’s also a location uptown.  VERY IMPORTANT:  They ONLY take cash.… Continue reading The Creole Creamery, New Orleans, LA Report #19
