From the outside it may not seem like much but go in and experience the real authentic Clarksdale. The lady at Dee's Merchantile suggested this as a place to have a southern breakfast. I'm so grateful for her suggestion and glad I had such a neat experience here. This is the kind of friendly, authentic, real people place. This is the kind of place to get a non-touristy experience. Don't come here expecting Cracker Barrel. I ordered at the bar and wondered around looking for a seat. Poured my own coffee. The man behind the bar brought me my breakfast and a few minutes later he brought his own breakfast over and joined me....Turns out he was the owner and had been stationed in Lawton, Oklahoma about 25 years ago and attended Langston University before returning to Clarksdale to buy this place. Being from Tulsa (about 150 miles north and East of Lawton) I thought that was pretty cool. It was nice to have a local experience. The cook has been here since she was a little girl he told me. I enjoyed my southern breakfast and especially my grits. I hope to make it back here sometime, especially on a Sunday when they have live music and crawfish boils, BBQ's. It's located right by Ground Zero and the Delta Blues Museum
