Where To Talk Coffee in Deep Ellum
Liz and Doug Davis help their neighbors get a cup of java and the New York Times.
Liz and Doug Davis should be poster children for the whole downtown loft thing. The couple sold their North Dallas house, took the kids, and moved into a Deep Ellum space. But where was the place to get a cup of coffee and the New York Times? Using money pooled from their high-tech jobs, they opened Murray Street Coffee Shop in a quaint brick building off Main Street. They outfitted it with ’50s furniture, fired up the Italian Illy coffee, and installed a rack for the Times. Murray Street is no late-night hang; it’s the flip side of Deep Ellum, open during the daytime only.
