Good taste of the south at fair prices. Be prepared to wait if you come late. Then walk Beale street at night and listen to the jazz from the various bars and park.

Our hotel recommended this café as a good place to eat. They had a good selection and prices were decent. The beer list was good as well, some local brews which we tried and enjoyed

This place is a hop, skip and a jump from my home. We often jump on the trolley and float down to the spot. I mean, where else can you get cheese grits, waffles, pancake and much more. Service is pretty good and the prices aren't bad either. Great spot

This place was recommended to us for breakfast. They do have lunch specials but they do not serve dinner. Our breakfast was a lot of food. It was late enough in the morning that my husband had a vegetable plate and enjoyed it. I ordered an omelet and it came with a biscuit and gravy along with a stack of... More

Good location within walking distance of hotel we stayed at. Excellent friendly and helpful service. Kept coffee hot and fresh. Large portions so split omelet between two of us. Biscuits were also excellent. Definitely recommend for breakfast when visiting Memphis.
