Thank you Kellyski for the kind review. Please do come see us on your next visit to Memphis. The vegan pancakes are sweeter with the granola and fruit. You might like the vegan waffle option, more of a whole grain taste, not as sweet.

Upscale breakfast fare that is good to excellent depending on the entree. However, the service was abysmal. Moreover, the management and staff seemed oblivious to their lackadaisical approach to food and beverage service. It is shame.More
