Tourism talks with Miss Kay's Sweets & EatsMay 15, 2022
my name is Alex Robertson Mancuso I am the Executive Pastry Chef at
sweetsand I was born and raised in West Monroe my name is Kimber I am the Executive Chef at
eatsI was born in South Louisiana Monroe is now my my home has Been for the last ten years and I love it here. It would be amazing one day if there were in this case all over the country, but there will always be weird cases here with us to get involved. We have great food at Gran Suites, for sure, but our message is much more than that, I mean our message is that it doesn't hurt to be nice to people, it doesn't hurt to show people that the reason for what we do is because we've been blessed by God because of our service to Him and we get to meet a lot of people and show that same spirit to other people we've had people from Mississippi Alabama Texas Arkansas Florida Canada can't in fact this last week we had several groups of people who are here from Wisconsin and Minnesota and Canada and Michigan and they're driving all the way pretty much alone to come here with a group that arrived Wednesday of last week and they were traveling back from West Texas and they were on the i-40 corridor going back to Gatlinburg but they took a trip down i-20 just to come here, we had a family that came from Australia, several came from Australia, but this family that I'm thinking of do in particular is a people from Australia and they messaged like three or four weeks in advance we're coming and we'll be there Monday which was before we were open on Mondays now we're open for lunch but we used to be totally closed on mondays so i texted back and said normally we are closed on monday but if you are coming from australia i will open the creepy door so they showed up it was around 10am and they came in and we welcomed them and had set up our display case for him we opened a register for him we sat here and talked for a long time and they bought cookbooks and t-shirts and hats and they liked all the food they could take away and they were so thankful we were open Monday when we were closed and they What we said was why weren't we going to have a big dynasty effect?
You know for things where people want to go in and see the family and all that? But there's a lot more to do than that because here the bad people want to come in they want to see Miss Kay and luckily she's very involved here so we see her in the restaurant all the time so she goes out to visit people and they can have their food but there are other things we can direct people to or we can say hello go see what happened down there they have an art you know crawl this weekend or they know this is passing by or go check out this little place or someone say well we're looking for something to do this so always send them to a place around here that will do as much as it can to meet their needs a lot of people that are from here and live here don't you realize there is a tourist industry here, and there would be even without the duck dynasty connection because this is a great area, there is a lot of history here it is a very old town obviously we are here in the antique alley and we are in a building that has e over a hundred years old it's really quaint and it's really lovely and there's a lot of things to do that you couldn't do anywhere else without 20 going through here.
There are a lot of vehicles that travel through the city that love to stop in the city and buy things here that a lot of people don't necessarily recognize. There are a lot of really good restaurants around here I I have to tell you I don't just love pie and it might be sacrilegious because I hope a bakery and pastry shop myself I love not only 5k loves it too it's an excellent favorite bye he likes it the banana candy I like the blueberry cream pie I've tried. reply I've done it before and I can't do it so last time I was there I said don't worry if I try to steal your pause because I've tried to do them and I can't I have to come here to get them and that's great I mean there are places we go and that's our mindset we don't try to be something we're not we don't try to be a meaty place we do what we're strong with and if i want a piece of caramel banana cake instead of telling him i know that he could pull it off you look ultra talented he couldn't just make a cake and get a piece i said what he wanted for his cousin was a custard pie you know cause he's the best but but us but there's a lot of great food around here, especially from the local people.
I think the warehouse is one of my favorite growls. it's beautiful the people that work there are really nice you can always count on whatever you ask for they will get something really g good i have some of me playing music there that is really good one thing you can get from miss kay is she doesn't you can get anywhere else in my opinion the best prolly i'm not even going to say anywhere else but New Orleans because I've been to New Orleans and our prawns I'm telling you are better yes they are made in small batches , it's my grandpa Phil's recipe and you can only make ten at a time and they're just warm and fall apart and they're very, very tender and buttery and I've never had one this good anywhere else no we're going to miss Kay's at 10:50 because if you got there at 10:50 you probably could get one of our homemade cookies and when you're convinced a burger too.
I'm Alex and I'm Gimbert and we're from miss Kay's
eatsand there's always something to do in Monroe and West Monroe.
