Though Daniella was born in New York and has lived in a couple of other states, Mississippi has been her home for more than 30 years. After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi, Daniella began to hone her writing skills through various internships. In the years since, she’s had the privilege of having her articles appear in several publications, such as the Mississippi-based Parents & Kids Magazine. She’s also had the honor of interviewing actress Sela Ward for The Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Experience.
Since we’ve already featured the oldest restaurant in Mississippi, we thought it’d be a good idea to feature the most famous. According to the website Thrillist, which recently released a list of iconic eateries across the country, the Mayflower Café is the most famous restaurant in the Magnolia State. Located in Jackson, the legendary café has been in business for decades. Now known for its distinctive fare and retro setting, a visit to the Mayflower Café is sure to be a memorable one. Take a look:
Visit the Mayflower Café at 123 W. Capitol Street in Jackson. It’s open Monday through Friday, from 11 am – 10 pm, and on Saturday, from 4 pm – 10 pm. Visit the restaurant’s website or Facebook page for more information.
