A full service salon combined with a cafe. Unique spot opens in this MS Coast city

Being a food and sports reporter is tough work.

There are many long nights, plenty of arduous typing and lots of nap-inducing meals to review. If only there were some establishment out there where I could try something new, infuse my veins with sugar and manicure my crumbling digits all at once.

Enter La Maison Grande at the Promenade in D’Iberville. They don’t explicitly say it on their website, but the just-opened salon and cafe was designed specifically as a haven for double-beat journalists.

All jokes aside, La Maison Grande officially opened its doors in October at 11516 Lamey Bridge R aoads a uniquely versatile full service salon and cafe.

According to their site, what they’re really out to accomplish is to provide an “inviting space where beauty and well-being intersect.”

My beauty and well-being certainly intersected when I stopped in to get a much-needed mani and sugar-boost.

La Maison Grande puts full effort into its combined endeavors. The cafe menu isn’t limited and comes with seasonal specialties.

Coffee any way you want it with non-dairy options available, smoothies in mango, strawberry and wild berry, tea in the form of black, green or chai latte and french soda with various flavoring choices are on the menu.

I had the Christmas-themed Fa La La Latte, a hyper-sweet treat with a Christmas tree cake on top.

We also ordered the snack that highlights the cafe’s spread: waffle pops. This was a new experience. It’s like a beignet, but on a stick. We got one dusted in powdered sugar and one dipped in white chocolate, topped with bananas and dolloped in whipped cream.

The experience didn’t end there. I got my manicure and left a soft-handed man with shiny nails. La Maison Grande takes its saloning serious, offering the full range of services.

Haircuts, trims, curling, coloring, nails. You name it, they do it.

Give me a couple of weeks and I’ll be back to indulge on more powdered-goodness-on-a-stick and a fresh polish for the nails on my money-makers.
