The brainchild of chef-owner Cole Ellis, the Delta Meat Market in downtown Cleveland is an old school, back-to-basics butcher shop, grocery store, and restaurant with a modern feel. His lunch menu board changes weekly and focuses on farm to table cuisine, using house cured and cut meats and local vegetables available in the store. Not to be missed is the DMM happy hour on Friday nights, which along with live music and dinner specials, features the market’s ever-growing assortment of curated craft beers. The team at Delta Meat Market travels too. 8 guests or 800, chef Cole Ellis will work with you to create the perfect menu. Weddings are a specialty of the team. Special cocktails, favorite foods, and even the cake, Delta Meat Market can help you pull off that special day.
Visitors and locals alike will find their taste buds tingling and satisfied at Cleveland’s service-station-turned-coffee-house, Mississippi Grounds. Located directly across from the courthouse, this café sports an outside patio area with large picnic tables, a doggie water fountain, and rising garage doors for fair-weather days. The scent of ground espresso and flavored roasts spill into the streets, along with the aroma of Yo’ Eddie’s BBQ. As the primary coffee shop in town, Mississippi Grounds pulls double duty—hosting Yo Eddie BBQ Thursdays that always include pulled pork and ribs, and a special of the day (faves include the brisket tacos and smoked meatloaf sandwiches). With menu items whimsically named after members of the owners families (such as the Basil Sylvester and the Daddy Judge), this small-town coffee-house is your one-stop-shop for all things caffeinated and delicious.
