Then, for a caffeine fix, head over to Main Street Coffee Co, where you can enjoy locally roasted brew and fresh-baked muffins and cookies.  And don’t forget there’s Java Moe’s Coffee Company across from the college.

Explore and Shop

Take some time to learn about the town at the Poplarville Chamber of Commerce. They have maps and informative publications that can guide your exploration. Then, indulge in some retail therapy at charming local shops like Apples Ltd.,  Delta Dawn Gifts or Petunia Pete’s for a variety of clothing and accessories,

For those craving Italian, Deb’s Pasta and Pizza is a great choice. If seafood is more your style, Perry’s Seafood is the place to go. Sticky Sauce BBQ – it’s all in the name!  Thinking Chinese, check out Best Wok.  What about Japanese – check out Lora Japanese Cuisine and for a taste of Mexican cuisine, El Mariachi offers a flavorful experience.
