This is one of my favorite spots for brunch (and more) in town, but don't go here if you're in a hurry. The food is great and more than makes up for the wait times, though. Great place for catching up with out-of-town friends or family, excellent for hot chocolate after a winter zoo visit, etc.

Visited here and had a wonderful experience with fast service for easy breakfast items the first time. Returned 2 days later for horrible service (1hr for simple food items) and cold coffee. Aloof waitstaff. Excellent manager though, but unaware of the flow of the restaurant. Environment is akin to set of 1990s Friends' set. Pastries displayed nicely. Local flare.

I'm so sorry for the horrible service you received on your second visit. We definitely goofed and desire desperately to correct or refund any subpar experience our standards are high and dissatisfaction is unacceptable for us to accept payment for. I'm so sorry our manager wasn't able to correct the situation. Thankyou very much for your feedback and your return... More

We are always in search of eating at local eateries (versus chain restaurants) so we were so excited to stumble upon this place on our way to the Memphis Zoo. Great service, cool atmosphere and amazing food! Plus their coffee and pasties are top notch as well. Will definitely be visiting again next time we are in the area!

I recently dined here for the second time. This time the weather was so pleasant that we sat outside on the sidewalk cafe. The one annoyance were the bumble bees flying around all the plants, but they left us along, thankfully. My friend and I had a leisurely dinner. We were catching up after not having seen each other in... More

Thank you so much for your review! You gave us some great feedback and we're definitely looking into several mentions. :) Bees - no fun for food, make tasty ingredients. Researching natural repellents. Service after paying - Next manager meeting topic! Thank you! Menus - Our new menu debuts tomorrow and we're so excited - it's been a horrible downfall... More

We ate lunch at another restaurant and decided to come here for pie and coffee. There were six of us and when we arrived, we could only see a few pieces of pie in the case. Before being seated, we wanted to know if there would be enough pie for all of us, but the person who would seat us... More

Had their London Fog tea which was very soothing on a rainy day and a panini sandwhich with pear arugala, and cheese. VERY nicely done! Atmosphere was great and friendly.

Great coffee, great food, great service, great atmosphere. What else can you ask for? I love the fact that this business supports sourcing local. Try the Bay of Pigs, you won't regret it.

Thank you so much for your review Charlie! I'm glad you enjoyed your sandwiches but was so sad you didn't feel welcome- We pride ourselves on a wonderfully diverse clientele and staff and we failed you! Hope you feel at home next time and that you choose to visit again! Rachel More
