A taste of Paris, down South

It is said that people find time to visit places hundreds of miles away, but never take the time to experience their local area.

Well, this past weekend, we did just that -- visited a new business locally, that is.

Our hometown of Ocean Springs draws thousands of tourists each year because of its quaint look, the overhanging oak trees, lively businesses and numerous festivals throughout the year.

If we drive through downtown, we are usually headed somewhere else.

But Saturday we decided to contribute to the well-being of a new-to-us
shop — French Kiss Pastries.

It is located on Washington Avenue on what is considered one of the two main roads through downtown.

Wifey had  her usual hot tea and a small croissant stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese, while I had a cup of coffee and a strawberry turnover.

There were numerous food offerings, all of which were very good. We didn’t take advantage of the wifi service since we were also headed to our other favorite coffee shop a little later.

French Kiss had a light and airy feeling to it, with about 15- foot ceilings and artwork displayed along the walls.

All in all, it was a very good outing, one which we plan to relive.
