We went with 2 other couples on a Saturday. It was packed but we were seated fast. I had an omelet as well as our friends. The food was great and plenty of it!. Seemed like a lot of seating because we did not have to wait long but be prepared for the wait.

I am very much a fan of breakfast and very much enjoyed this place. It has an excellent 'local' feel to it and a wide variety menu. A very small space, we were encouraged to arrive as early as possible to avoid the wait - which turned out to be very true! Service was good and food was as expected.... More

Tried based on tripadvisor reviews. So glad we did. There was over an hour wait so we opted on orderIng food to go. The wait for our food was longer than we were told but it was definitely worth it. Loaded cheesy grits were amazing. Black bean burrito was also amazing. If we lived by this place we would become... More

A good friend of ours insisted we try this jewel of a place. He was a principal in the school where the owners kids attended. Not only was this a great family, the food may be the best breakfast I have had. They do simple things extraordinarily well. I have never had potatoes that delicious. I will be back. The... More

Went on a breakfast date here. Food was very good, service was excellent. Only issue was for price paid portions were a bit small.

EVERYTHING from the coffee to the condiments is excellent. There are so many favorites that I can't remember their names, but the chorizo sausage breakfast burrito springs readily to mind. Ingredients are locally sourced, lovingly prepared and graciously served. Consistently rated Best Breakfast in Memphis by those who know.

Specialty omelets were great, several on the menu. The home fries are crispy, flavorful and tasty with every choice. The strawn toast is the best. Service is prompt, friendly. Meals are served hot. If you do not get there early expect a wait, but worth it. Nice coffee bar while you wait. A wonderful addition for Midtown area. Marde
