Third Street welcomes new businesses


Aug. 7, 2013 —

Lewis, a Carter County native, moved back to the area after several years away.

She wanted to put down roots and spend more time with family.

“There are a lot of things that I believe that Grayson can use,” Lewis said. “I want to help reach the youth and college-age people and show them that there are positive things here.”

3rd Street Coffee currently has a limited summer menu, which includes organic coffee and teas, steamers for the kids, frappe and Italian soda.

Business hours and the menu will expand in September and will include breakfast items, pastries, soups and sandwiches.

The shop serves coffee from Just Love Coffee Roasters of Murfreesboro, Tenn. The roaster is a free trade organization that gets organic beans from the farm to your cup in about a week.

“The coffee is so fresh, you can taste all the subtle nuances of the flavor that get lost in coffee that sits on the shelf,” Lewis said.

The coffee is fresh and for some, free. Lewis, as part of her ministry idea, has a pay-it-forward campaign.

“People can buy a cup for someone else, like a single mom going back to college, or a homeless man,” Lewis said. “They may never know who the cup goes to, but they will know that they have helped someone feel loved and appreciated, which is what this is all about.”

3rd Street Coffee is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The shop will offer free Wi-Fi for customers and extended hours in the fall.

For more information, call (606) 831-5749.

Leeann Akers can be reached at or by phone at 474-5101.
