The Perfect Blend

Sonia Thompson

In our opinion, there's no better combination than enjoying a cup of coffee from a dock overlooking the water. Now there are a couple more options close to Splinter Creek for grabbing some morning joe or a bag of beans for the next day at the lake.

The Humble Bee Cafe opened in Water Valley in October. It offers espresso drinks, frappes, and fresh pastries, made with locally and ethically sourced products and ingredients.

Visit the Humble Bee Cafe at 405 North Main Street in Water Valley.

Mother and daughter team Sarah Stone and Maggie Richardson opened the Humble Bee Cafe in Water Valley in October. They place an emphasis on sourcing items locally when possible. The Humble Bee uses milk from the Brown Family Dairy in Oxford, and their beans are roasted in Flowood, Mississippi, by Prodigy Roasters. They sell pastries from Water Valley's Trusty Diner and buy their paper cups from Panola Paper Company.

Lost Dog Coffee in Taylor's Plein Air commercial district opened in the fall and features views of quiet green space.

Lost Dog Coffee is located in Taylor's Plein Air neighborhood.

Lost Dog Coffee in Taylor, Mississippi, opened its doors in September. It also places an emphasis on fostering a sense of community, great coffee, and local talent. Some of the furniture was designed by local woodworker Obie Clark. The back bar, which features alternating shades of hardwood, was made by Alan Jones of JJ’s Wood Shed in Oxford. Taylor resident and potter Keith Stewart hand-threw the coffee mugs.

Water Valley's Heartbreak Coffee is opening in a new and still-undisclosed location in 2019.

According to an announcement on social media, Heartbreak Coffee will open a new brick and mortar store later this year. After closing its doors in the Yalobusha Brewery building last year, Heartbreak Coffee was slightly harder to come by, popping up at the Oxford Community Market and for sale at other retail locations. Heartbreak's new home is still under wraps, but we're excited to solve the mystery soon.
