In Waveland, delectable homemade donuts will be making a comeback soon to Ana’s Café.
The restaurant and bakery is located at 2401 McLaurin, just off Hwy. 90. The owner, Ana Rogers, made her culinary mark in Hancock County by creating irresistible treats at her first restaurant, Grammy’s Donuts (which has since been sold).
Ana’s Café will be featured in the “Coast Cuisine” column of the upcoming May issue of the Shoofly Magazine. Check there after May 1st for the story by Lisa Monti.
Lulu's on Main
Another favorite local restaurant is also expanding their menu by offering breakfast. Lulu’s on Main (126 Main Street, Bay St. Louis), a popular lunch and Sunday brunch choice began serving breakfast on Tuesday, April 25th.
Owner and chef Nancy Moynan is serving up traditional breakfast egg dishes, alongside specialties like fried chicken beignets, lox and bagels, and a “EBLT,” a BLT made with a fried egg and multi-grained bread, dressed with a bacon remoulade sauce. And pancakes, made with her secret recipe.
Breakfast will be served all day from 8am to 3pm, Tuesday through Saturday. The regular lunch menu, which features items like Moynan’s signature roast beef po-boys and fried oyster BLTs, will be available from 11am – 3pm.
Locals know to look for Moynan’s weekly specials too, like crawfish quesadillas and fried meat pies.
“The specials depend on what seasonal foods I can get fresh,” she says. “And whatever comes out of my crazy little head.”
