This winter, come inside and feed your soul.
There’s nothing better on a cold day than a bowl of warm, delicious soup – or soup-adjacent comforts. In Ridgeland, this includes gumbo, red beans & rice, and pho!
Head to CAET [seafood | oysterette] for Seafood Gumbo served with homemade cornbread. Anjou Restaurant perfects their French Onion Soup and offers rotating soups of the day, and the best bowl of chili can be found at E.A.T.S. Diner. For authentic Asian cuisine, you’ve got options: visit Jutamas Thai Restaurant for soups, curries, and noodles galore, Pho Huong Vietnamese Restaurant for the best Pho selection in town, and Red 8 Kitchen for favorites including Wonton Soup, Hot Sour Soup, and Tom Yum Soup.
Steakhouse Capital of Mississippi
Ridgeland has earned the title for good reason. We may be biased, but you can’t go wrong with any of these locally owned, critically acclaimed choices.
Kathryn’s Steakhouse and Seafood Restaurant has two trademarks: large portions and live music. Ely’s Restaurant & Bar offers a prime atmosphere and cuisine to match, and Koestler Prime is conveniently located at Renaissance at Colony Park. Local’s love Tico’s Steakhouse and MM Shapley’s Restaurant, both serving up their delicious spins on surf and turf and specialty seared cuts.
Feed Your Soul
We may not “do” cold weather here in the south, but we do know how to do comfort food.
Soulshine Pizza Factory’s famous pizzas and calzones are stars of the show, but their oven roasted sandwiches, Red Beans & Rice, and other signature entrees are certainly worth mentioning. Soul Sistas’ rotating line up of plate meals and mouth watering featured items include chicken tetrazzini, pork chops, and chicken philly sandwiches, to name a few. Primos Café and The Trace Grill’s daily features and blue plate specials can’t be beat: Chicken & Dumplings, Fried Green Tomatoes, Pot Roast, Meatloaf, and Country Fried Steak just scratch the surface.
Your Perfect Blend
Ridgeland’s local coffee shops are brewing a cup with your name on it, no matter your order.
Fusion Coffeehouse at the Township at Colony Park’s rotating special brews and monthly live jazz performances are a winning combination; the current feature is the Fusion Christmas Cookie Latte. PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans is right at home in Ridgeland with regular events, giveaways, and features. Up now: Peppermint Latte, Peppermint Velvet Ice, Butter Rum Latte, and the newest addition, Cookie Dough Oat Milk Latte. Ridgeland Coffee Co. is a drive through coffee shop with the motto to provide fresh, fast, and friendly services, and Cups Espresso Café is a community-driven café where laughing and community are valued.
At Ridgeland’s newest Italian eatery, Enzo Osteria, choose from authentic Italian dishes and classic American Italian features. Amerigo Italian Restaurant has been a local favorite for over three decades, offering the full lunch and dinner menu seven days a week. Last and certainly not least, Fratesi’s tiramisu and tasty seasonal cocktails will keep you cozy all winter long.
