New eateries coming to downtown


During the City Advertising Tourist Promotion Commission (CATPC) meeting on April 25, Mayor Jerry Jackson mentioned three new eateries opening in downtown Harrison but was not allowed to divulge further details at that time. The commissioners were very excited and anxious to hear all the details.

Jackson said recently in the Harrison Daily Times, “Although the loss of restaurant/brewery corner spot was significant, we're exploring opportunities for smaller eateries, which could enhance our community even further. With Creekside opening soon, we anticipate growth in both the dining and boutique sectors.”

The third restaurant’s official papers were signed on Friday, May 10, and now it is official.

Jackson said, “We’ve been given permission to share the details on all three locations. These three new businesses will add to what is already offered downtown. The TownHouse Cafe is a staple to the square. Two Ravens have moved to the 1929 Historic Hotel Seville and reopened the restaurant there. We also have Neno’s Place, formerly the Pour House. And we can’t forget The Cake Shop.”

The three new eateries will be Six Sisters Coffee and Crepes, the 1915 Cafe & Bakery, and Boba Joes.

Six Sisters Coffee and Crepes

Six Sisters Boutique is changing its focus. Erin Ramsey announced on FaceBook. “Big changes are coming soon! We have decided to follow a dream! This is something we have wanted to do for a long time, and I’m not getting any younger. We will convert our boutique into the perfect moody coffee and crepe shop. Stay tuned for more details!!! We love you all!!!! Thank you for supporting 6 Six Sisters for the past nine years. On to new dreams!”

Ramsey added, “We will be serving coffee, with sweet and savory crepes plus daily specials.” They hope to open in September.

“This will be a great location for a coffee shop. Six Sisters already has a drive-thru window,” Jackson said.

1915 Cafe & Bakery

“We are also excited to announce the owners of Lillie Hobbs Mercantile are opening the 1915 Cafe & Bakery at the former Kirklands location at 119 East Stephenson Ave.

Owners Eric and Kelly Lindberg are excited about this expansion. “Our son, Ryan, will manage the downtown location. The menu will be similar to the Lillie Hobbs location – soups, sandwiches, and bakery items will still be made from scratch. We will also offer our famous mile-high carrot cakes, cinnamon rolls, and other homemade goodies.”

There will be some new breakfast items and lunch items until 3 p.m. Then they plan to stay open later when there is additional seating and more activities happening downtown. “Our goal is to open by the middle or late June,” Kelly said.

Boba Joes

The third new eatery coming downtown just closed on purchasing the corner building across from Dollar General.

Jeff and Erin Renner have operated Boba Joes in Branson for almost two years.

Renner said, “We’ve been keeping our eyes on Harrison for the past three years. Renner said, “We’ve been keeping our eyes on Harrison for the past few years. One of the main reasons we chose to move down to Harrison, apart from the great people from Harrison that we've met at our Branson location, was how much growth we’ve seen – how the downtown has been cleaned up.

The park has been updated, and the city is building an aquatic center. We can tell that you have a growing mindset. Harrison is not a dying town- you are working hard to make sure that doesn’t happen. So, for us, that was a huge win. This town is trying to go somewhere, and we want to be a part of that. We hope that when we open, all the other businesses will say, ‘Wow, when Boba Joes moved in, all of our paychecks went up.’ That’s our hope … to help grow downtown.”

“You’ve already got the shopping; now we just need to get more food available downtown,” she said.

Boba Joes will serve Bubble tea, smoothies, hand-crafted Artisan ice cream, gourmet cookies, and French macarons. They plan to open in early July.

New Furniture Store

“And one more new business we know of is hopefully opening shortly after Memorial Day just off the Downtown Square. Rick and Lorna Dixon are opening Home Furniture, Decor & More at 110 N. Walnut, next to Clark Office Supply,” Jackson said.

Rick said, “We will have everything that goes in a home: dining room tables, chairs, sofas, bedroom suits, and power lift chairs. We also plan to have outdoor patio furniture. And something brand new that was featured on Shark Tank is CordaRoy’s Bean Bag Beds.
