The Starfish Cafe does an amazing job fulfilling it’s mission of sharing love and education. The diverse menu offers fresh vegetables grown in the front yard and tended by volunteers. The staff and food are so wonderful that it is very easy to leave a generous donation.

The quaint atmosphere was a close second to the superior service! It felt as if I were at home but then I realized I was in a restaurant/art gallery! The service was exceptional and the food was superior to anything I've encountered in my travels within the U.S. and abroad. The menu is appropriate for the area and the freshness of the ingredients was evident. I recommend a visit!

Food was excellent as always. I suggest offering more types of beverages--esp. ones w/o sugar (teas maybe). Service was a little quirky.

You won't be sorry you stopped in for a bite.. fresh garden vegetables. Don't forget to order a spring roll and the deserts are fantabulous.

While visiting Bay Saint Louis with family friends last spring, we happened upon Starfish Cafe. Having never been to this part of the Gulf of Mexico before we did not know where to eat and took a chance on this restaurant. 4 adults and 6 kids aged 4 to 13 for lunch. Everyone was able to find something excellent to eat. Service was great, and we found out after we arrived that we paid what we wanted for the food. It is set up as a learning experience for the people working there to learn to work in the food industry. A totally great idea. We paid a fair price and tipped well. Because, like I said the food was excellent. If we make it back to this area again, we will definitely return!
