Need to feed your sweet tooth, or just looking for a relaxing spot of tea or cuppa joe? Try our local Abita Roasting Company coffee, with beans hand roasted right here on the Northshore. At their Madisonville location, you can sip a cup from the deck of the historic Coquille Cottage and watch the boats go by on the scenic Tchefuncte River. Or, have some beignets and café au lait at Northshore locations of the New Orleans classic, Café du Monde. The English Tea Room in downtown Covington is a darling place to sip tea and while away an afternoon, with homages to the Queen everywhere you turn.
Ever tried a snowball? Meant to be savored, it's a delicious shaved ice with flavored simple syrup - think Wedding Cake, Nectar, Tutti Frutii, Strawberry and more. There are snowball stands all over the Northshore when the temperature starts to rise. You can check out the Old Town Slidell Soda Shop for old fashioned ice cream sodas, banana splits, and more. The nostalgia and warm fuzzy feeling you'll feel when served by a soda jerk is lagniappe.
