Where Lost Dogs are Found: New coffee shop emphasizing pour overs opens in Taylor

Every lost dog from Oxford ends up in Taylor. That’s why the owners of a new coffee shop at 4 Town Square Lane in Taylor decided to name it Lost Dog Coffee. The business about 20 minutes outside of Oxford is in Plein Air, a small community with a chapel, event space and brunch restaurant. The building for the coffee shop was finished a few weeks ago just in time for the grand opening Saturday, Sept, 15, the weekend of the Alabama vs. Ole Miss game.

Harrison’s moves into Frank and Marlee’s old space in Oxford

You may have heard of Frank and Marlee’s, or maybe even Murph’s, or before that – Ireland’s Irish Pub. But now the building at 1210 Harrison Avenue is called Harrison’s, named after the street it’s on. Harrison’s Manager Jackson May reopened the bar Sept. 15. “We’ve got a fresh take on the dive bar,” he said. “We’re adding a deck onto it. Frank and Marlee’s had a deck already, but it was small. The new deck is going to be twice the size of Round Table’s deck, and we’re going to put the swings back up that were on the porch before. But all in all, we kind of just wanted to add a new tradition onto an already Oxford classic.”
