110 S. Second Street
Nestled in the heart of Bay St. Louis lies the one and only Mockingbird Cafe, which holds a special place in the hearts of the locals. Known as the "Living Room of Bay St. Louis", the cafe's roots can be traced back to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when the community was left shattered and in need of a place to heal.
In those trying times, the Mockingbird Cafe emerged as a beacon of hope, offering comfort and camaraderie to those who sought refuge within its walls. It quickly became a gathering spot where locals and volunteers could come together over a cup of coffee and find solace in conversation and companionship.
Since its inception, the Mockingbird Cafe has come a long way and is now much more than just a coffee shop. It has evolved into a family-friendly establishment that offers a plethora of amenities, including delicious, locally-inspired cuisine made from fresh ingredients, live music performances, art exhibitions, community events, and a local favorite hangout.
On this upcoming Second Saturday, April 8th, the cafe will celebrate its status as a Hotspot with a thrilling evening for all attendees. The Jeb Vonderbruegge Trio will grace the cafe's outdoor covered stage with their music from 5 to 8 pm. And if that's not enough, you can join in on the Hula Hoop Contest at 6 pm, open to all ages. The winners of the contest will receive a coveted Mockingbird Cafe gift card.
But this is just the beginning of the cafe's exciting events calendar. In August, the cafe will celebrate its 17th anniversary with the annual Birdstock, featuring live music by the Bay St Louis Trio and a Hippie Contest. And for Frida Fest in July, the Frida Look-A-Like Contest will take place at the Mockingbird Cafe. Participants can register online at the Mockingbird's website, and all proceeds will go to support local charities.
So, if you're in search of a welcoming atmosphere, delicious food, and unforgettable experiences, look no further than the Mockingbird Cafe. Stop by and make yourself at home in the "Living Room of Bay St. Louis"!
