My last recommendation in this week about date places may surprise you.
The Greenhouse on Porter, 404 Porter Ave., in Ocean Springs is a coffee shop, but it has a unique atmosphere. The front room is for those feeling gregarious, but the back and the side yard are great places for a quiet get together.
You might not think an old green house would be very romantic, but you will be surprised at the ambience this old place has.
Order a coffee and a from-scratch biscuit or a cold beer, and talk the night away. If you show up on the right weekend, there just might be a band, and you can dance the night away under the stars. How’s that for romantic?
