BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
There's something new cooking up in Downtown Biloxi, and The Main Street Association wants you to get a taste.
"This is a great day in Downtown Biloxi. Especially here in Rue Magnolia, the new art district. We had two ribbon cuttings here today. The big scissors were here in full force," Biloxi Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tina Ross Seamans said.
Those scissors cut the ribbon on what shop owners are hoping will be a new beginning for Biloxi. With Crusin' the Coast just days away, there's excitement in the air because of the new life the downtown area is bringing to the city.
"I'm just really excited and I feel privileged to be able to take part. Building our community with Downtown Biloxi and being a part of a strong alliance of business," Le Café Beignet Owner Sita Latap said.
Le Café Beignet offers gourmet Southern comfort food, with a touch of Creole and French inspired delicacies. There's also a gift shop attached, bringing unique antiques to the art district.
One of the other businesses added to Biloxi's roster is Da Little Café. With one location based in Waveland, the business is now bringing its unique style to Harrison County.
"We decided to move to Biloxi because of the location and we're really excited. We started selling food here Saturday and this week we really noticed how things are going to be fast paced around here. So it's really keeping us on our toes," Manager Kristy Burse said.
"It's a perfect opportunity to showcase the history and the culture and the art. As well as the food, that's kind of what we're known for in Biloxi. Biloxians take that to heart, so it's very important for not only our Biloxians, but people all over the Gulf Coast to come check it out," Seamans said.
