Something to Celebrate

MJ & Hydrant

Posted on: April 10, 2009

Today when I was doing some shopping and strolling around the Denton Square I came across 2 really cool event spaces!  I definitely encourage you to pay them a visit or a book an event at these spots:


The Hydrant Cafe is located at 208 W. Oak Street between Ethan Allen and Sue’s Formal.  They not only have great coffee, but also free Wi-Fi and an upstairs room perfect for lounging or a party!  They have live music here periodically and also serve breakfast and lunch.  I tried their specialty Toddy coffee which is a coffee that is brewed for 12 hours and made to be iced.  The flavor was amazing and they even have “Sonic Ice” !  If you don’t know what I mean by Sonic Ice then Lord help you and ask your Texan friends 🙂 

Madison Jane is located at 105 W. Hickory Street.  This super cute boutique has all kinds of unique and original gift items as well as a bead store and party room.  You can take a Bumble Beads ( class or workshop here to make your own creative jewerly and decor or have a Bumble Beads party!  In their Bumble Beads event space Madison Jane will provide everything you’d need for a Bridesmaids party, Birthday party, Prom Party, Girly Party, or Mom Party.  They’ll even bring the party to you if you want to stay at home!

I always love discovering unique, locally-owned businesses like I did today.  Businesses like the Hydrant Cafe and Madison Jane are owned by real people (not corporate giants) who pour their heart and souls into serving you a quality product.  Let’s support our local businesses–they have so much to offer!  Check out Hydrant Cafe and Madison Jane whether it’s just to have a cup of Joe or play with beads 🙂

What’s your favorite locally-owned business?

Is Walmart considered locally owned? If so, I choose them.

Hi Holly! My daughter and I are the “real people” that own MJ and Bumble Beads. I just discovered your blog post about us and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the glowing review! Next time you’re in Denton, stop by and say “hi”!


Hi Wendy,

I’m sorry I am just now responding to your comment but I wanted to say thank you for reading and for having such a great business! I will definitely be back. You should consider joining the Lake Cities Chamber as well!

Thank you for supporting locally owned businesses! We appreciate customers like you.
