I think this place rocks! The servers are friendly as can be, obviously like working there, and always make you feel at home. The coffee is better by far than Starbucks, and the menu is filled with great selections. Recently my kids visited from New York, and we stopped there for breakfast - they said it was to die for!...

The food here is good, some rather creative, nothing terribly outstanding. Their baked goods are well above average. Be aware that they only use brown beans for their espresso drinks. Therefore, the pricey Americanos only taste like an expensive strong cup of regular coffee. Ech! All locations have very good wi-fi - a good place to have a meeting over... More

We're very happy you're happy with your meals but so sorry you were disappointed with your coffee. The beans we use are a normale roast by illy - which is used in all of their espresso beverages and is ground for espresso. We have considered offering a dark roast which is exceptional but not recommended by illy for espresso beverages.... More

Josh was our server & he announced that he was in a bad mood......if that was a bad mood, I'd love to see him in a good mood. He was great & had all of us smiling. He was attentive, witty & accommodating. The fact that food was wonderful as well made this a very happy meal. I definitely would... More

On a recent visit to Memphis we decided to check out Cafe Eclectic for brunch and I am glad we did. The baked good and the coffee was good. The atmosphere was nice as well, but by far and away the winner was the chicken and waffles. I am a big fan and this was the best Chicken and Waffles... More

I love traveling to Memphis to find little gems and this restaurant was one. The name of the restaurant says it all. When you first walk in the door they have a small case of fresh made bakery items. The best cinnamon buns I've ever had was in a bakery in West Yellowstone Mt and although I didn't try Café... More

We like the busy friendly atmosphere. Midtown is different, slower, more relaxed and a nice change of pace for a Sunday morning.

We were hoping to fine a nice comfortable breakfast restaurant outside our hotel and this one was recommended by two friends. Our two omelets had little taste, and were small. The egg white omelet was runny, and the whole egg omelet overcooked and rubbery. Coffee was good, but creamer pitcher had to be returned. Toast cold/hard. Biscuit ok, and blackberry... More

I'm so sorry you had a bad experience with us! Our managers want to know when we haven't met our expectations. We refuse to allow insatisfied customers to pay. If you have any details on when you were in and who your server was we'd be very grateful! My email is Rachel@cafeeclectic.net Again so sorry for the disappointment. More

Our daughter and son-in-law reside in Memphis. On our previous visit, they took us here by defacto as their first choices were too crowded. Too bad??? Nah!!! This place is awesome. We went back this past weekend without the kids and we were once again treated to awesome coffee and a very scrumptious breakfast. First, this place is Bohemian. Lots... More

Food was great, albeit a little slow. Loved the ambience. From what I understand, the place is always packed, so they have a loyal local following. Worth the wait!

This small restaurant in Midtown has a homey atmosphere and lovely, friendly and helpful staff. My husband raves about their spicy sausage and I love their Nutella French Toast with fresh strawberries. Go early they stay busy!!!
