Old-Fashioned Grocery in Water Valley

1 Aug

When you’re in the mood for a lazy drive away from the Square, consider the quaint little grocery called The B.T.C. just up the road at 301 N. Main St. in Water Valley.

According to co-owner Alexe van Beuren, The B.T.C. is first and foremost a grocery, but it also houses a small, informal cafe, which serves breakfast and lunch Monday through Saturday, and breakfast all day on Sunday. Breakfast highlights include housemade sausage gravy and grits, while lunch features an array of soups, salads, and sandwiches. It may be a simple menu, but Alexe says it’s made with love by Dixie Grimes (former head chef at Oxford’s Downtown Grille). Dixie also makes the grocery’s deli spreads; salads, such as watermelon feta; and frozen casseroles and entrees.

B.T.C. also stocks deli salads such as Tex-Mex pimento cheese and hand-pulled chicken salad; take-home casseroles (think hoop and havarti macaroni, jalapeno grits); and deli meats and cheeses that are sliced daily. Have a sweet tooth? Cora is on hand creating fried pies, chocolate buttermilk cake and other decadent treats.

The cafe is informal, with a playhouse for children, and affordable pricing, including some $2 sandwiches and a full-plate breakfast (eggs, bacon, biscuit and grits) for $5.99.

According to Alexe, the grocery carries several items not found anywhere else in the state, such as Eduardo’s handmade pasta from San Francisco. And B.T.C. Grocery offers delivery service to Oxonians who can’t make the trip to Water Valley, meeting customers at the local Garden Center on Fridays (same prices as if you had driven to Water Valley and shopped yourself).
