We’re always on the lookout for a new coffee house to frequent.
And it just so happens we came across such a place on a visit to the coastal city of Pass Christian a number of months ago when participating in a Parade of Homes program.
We didn’t know the place existed but were surprised to find the combination Pass Christian Books and Cat Island Coffee House in a building overlooking the local harbor and the Mississippi Sound.
It was a great location.
Pass Christian is about a 30-mile drive from home. We didn’t have the time on the previous visit to stop and imbibe, but a couple of weeks ago decided to take a Sunday afternoon excursion to enjoy the trappings of a new place.
And it was enjoyable. They served the usual offerings of coffee and a bunch of different teas. I got coffee, wifey got tea and we sat at a table where we could take advantage of the scenery.
There were a number of “tables for two” inside along with a few lounge chairs and tables along with one location big enough for at least two to sit with their computers on a table.
There was also outside seating.
There was a spiral staircase leading to the second floor (a portion opened to the lower level) which housed a selection of books by Mississippi authors.
I guess the next time we head west to places father away, not only will be take the time to travel on the famous Scenic Drive, but also stop at our newfound offering.
And one of the great things was the fact that I was served my coffee drink in an actual ceramic cup -- with a bit of a decoration on top.
