Amazing Broccoli Cheddar Soup

I visited Cafe Eclectic during lunch time on a Saturday. It was pretty busy. We got our food sooner than expected for how many people were there. The waiter let us try some of the soups. The broccoli cheddar soup is amazing! I had the pineapple chicken panini it was delicious, but when we decided... read more

I have been to this Cafe twice. The first time I was disappointed because of the high noise level and slow food service. I decided to give it another chance. This time the service was just as slow and the noise level so high my group of three could not easily hear each other. I almost asked if we could... More

I always enjoy a meal out at Cafe Eclectic on McClean. The food is consistently good, and while they have a strong menu, the nice thing is that they focus on items they do well. I've had a lot of different things, and I really do not have a "favorite." What I like most, however, is that this is a... More

Looked up a place for Iced Coffee, and this was at the top of the list. Did not disappoint. The fellow behind the counter and I got to talking and had a great conversation about Southern California, from where he had recently moved. My iced coffee was great. My wife and daughter had Iced Creme Bru-lattes and loved them. Highlight... More

Almost every day my dog and I walk there to get a bacon cheddar scone and an extra dirty chai. Amazing service. Feels like family.

Came here for my first visit. I will be sure to come back when I visit Memphis again. The coffee drinks were absolutely beautiful and delicious. There were lots of different coffee drinks to choose from as well. The food was great as well. The pancakes and grits were both tasty as well as the hash. Overall a nice independent... More

Nice open atmosphere with a busy feel but not too loud to talk across the table. Good food and quick friendly service. Big menu including lots for breakfast. We look forward to coming back.

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
