About The 'bird


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.

In the years since, the Mockingbird Cafè has evolved from coffee shop & gathering place into
a respected restaurant and art gallery.

bsl 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 7PM every First and Third Saturday of the month. Come on in, sing, dance, play an insturment, tell jokes or, well, whatever. You'll be welcomed at the 'bird. The Mockingbird Café really does have something for everyone.

And the "bird is very kid friendly. As the saying goes, "It takes a village".

The food is always very good, prepared just the way you like it. Our signature Mockingburger
(larger than a normal person can comfortably eat) is, of course, the House Specialty.
Enjoy it with a large, locally brewed Lazy Magnolia draft beer.

Your first experience at the 'bird will be met with friendliness and acceptance. Ater that, well, you'll be one of the regulars.So, join us and make the Mockingbird your Living Room Scroll down a few lines and check out what great coffee and food await you.
