If you’ve been inside the Mustard Seed antique shop at 1737 University Avenue in the past couple of months, you may have noticed the unmistakable smells of a deli in the air as you walk toward the back of the store.
Dennis and Michelle Heisel opened Pink Peony inside the Mustard Seed in May after closing their store and deli of the same name in Pontotoc. Michelle’s mom, Sheila Tutor, can be found behind the counter every day, chatting with customers while making sandwiches and salads.
Menu favorites include the Oxford Country Club with smoked turkey, black forest ham, bacon and cheese inside a croissant; and The Pepe with grilled chicken breast, bacon, pepper jack cheese, guacamole and mayo. A separate kid’s menu, desserts, and deli salads by the pound are also available.
Pink Peony is open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Dennis says the deli can also be rented for birthdays and special events. For more information, call 662-509-1435.
