Serving up Great Coffee, Food & Fun since 2006
Built in 1868 and boasting a rare three-sided gallery, the Mockingbird Café is a small, charmingly eclectic venue located two blocks from the Beachfront, Old Town Bay St. Louis. The 'bird is the preferred hangout of the young, young at heart, slightly underground, artsy, volunteers, old hippies and generally, anyone with an easy spirit who doesn't think you should put extra starch in your underwear. We've been called the Living Room of the Bay, and that is true. When the Mockingbird was born, out of the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, locals and volunteers alike found the 'bird to be a welcome and comforting presence in the trying, chaotic times after the storm.
Coffee, Food, Art
In the years since, the Mockingbird Cafè has evolved from coffee shop & gathering place into a respected restaurant and art gallery. The walls of the 'bird are filled with the creations of local artist and photographers. (By the way, those aristic creations are for sale, also.) Offering Specialty Coffees, Food and Drink, Happy Hour and other events, the Mockingbird has days and evenings filled with much enjoyment and relaxation. We have Open Mic night at least once a month. Check the Events & Entertainment Page. Come on in, sing, dance, play an insturment, tell jokes or, well, whatever. You'll be welcomed at the 'bird.
