Praline Favorite Tee Eva’s Cuts Its Storefront, But Is Still in Business

Just a few months after the death of Tee-Eva herself

Jean K./Yelp

Classic New Orleans praline and pie destination Tee-Eva’s Old Fashioned Pies and Pralines has closed its Magazine Street storefront.

However, the business is still very much baking, although it now has no location open to the public. A phone call to Tee-Eva’s from Eater confirms that the storefront is now closed, but the company is still operating out of a warehouse at the Uptown location.

Orders must now be placed by phone or online, but there’s no place to browse Tee-Eva’s wares.

The change comes less than six months after Tee-Eva’s founder Eva Louis Perry — also known as Tee Eva — died at the age of 83. She founded the storefront in 1994 and had run her praline and pie business for a few years before that. Yet it’s unlikely that her death caused the shutter of the storefront — Perry retired from her business in 2000, handing it over to her granddaughter.
