I’ve heard many times that the food at the Starfish Cafe in Bay St. Louis is to die for. Rave reviews paired with a cause I wholeheartedly support, the top spot on TripAdvisor, and a reputation for everything that makes a locally owned restaurant special—and FINALLY, I made it over for a visit!
First of all, this place is so charming. It’s a small cottage with bright colors and coastal-themed decor, smiling faces, and inviting tables. We were greeted with an invitation to sample some of their fresh lavender lemonade. Um, yes! The lemonade was so refreshing; it reminded me of a trip to Maui, where fresh-squeezed and infused lemonade was an art. We sipped our lemonade while looking out over the front lawn, where the Starfish garden thrives. They grow much of the produce they use in the restaurant themselves. Small corn plants were lined up in rows beside planters of herbs. So charming.
