This family owned and operated grocery is packed with all the essentials, as well as specialty items (sausages, boudin, Cajun spices, pralines, local honey, etc.), a lunch counter with grab-and-go meals, a smart selection of wines, spirits and craft beers (including limited edition brews by Abita Brewery!), Louisiana- and LSU-themed gifts and baked goods.
Pick up a cold sandwich or salad or a hot plate lunch to go, and take a short stroll along the Tammany Trace to the Abita Park pavilion for a picnic in the shade. Hot lunches include po-boys, smoked sausage, St. Louis-style BBQ rib, noodle casseroles, roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy, smoked brisket or pulled pork with dirty rice, baked beans, slow cooked collard greens and cole slaw.
