I ordered the basic scrambled eggs and bacon that came with potatoes and biscuits. The food was good, but not fantastic... The coffee was amazing and the staff was efficient and fun.

Great little place for brunch, which I love by the way, atmosphere is great and so are the people who work there. The food was really good and a nice selection of coffee, which I also love...love love by the way. If you haven't been here go if you have go again. Just be ready to park wherever hopefully close...

Went for breakfast with my daughter while visiting and she said her donut was awesome. I ordered the eggs with bacon, potatoes and biscuit. The over easy eggs were cooked perfect the bacon was awesome the potatoes were good but cold and the biscuit was less than average.

Based our visit here on Airbnb host referral and tripadvisor ratings. Went for the first time for SUnday brunch right at 9am opening. We were told about their southern eggs benny (photo to come): 2 southern style bisccuits topped with poached eggs, hollandaise, fried chicken and gravy (layers in that order). It's almost an "it's so wrong it's right" combination,... More

While on a trip with my girlfriend, we decided to stop at this cafe for coffee and breakfast. We are so glad we did. This place serves up wonderful coffees and baked goods and the food is delicious as well. The B.E.C sandwich and the French Toast were amazing. The best part though was the white chocolate mocha and creme... More

Nothing better than visiting the old neighborhood and discovering a fabulously sweet and cool eatery. That happened today in Memphis. Cafe Eclectic has a huge following of college students, young and older friends from near and far. Our lunch was full of flavor. Catch the fibe at Cafe Eclectic on N. McLean near North Parkway.

We dropped by here on our way to Memphis Zoo. The place soon got packed out which we knew was a good sign however we had to wait a while for our food. The waitress was apologetic and 50% was taken off the food bill for the inconvenience which was very kind. Great food!

I had dinner here last night with my daughter, on her recommendation, and was very pleased. I had heard of this place and must have passed it, though I don't get into this part of town as often as I used to. It's a large, roomy place with a definite Midtown vibe, and seating is available inside or on a... More

I stopped in with my wife for breakfast and it was good. She order the traditional with scrambled eggs, biscuits, hash browns and a biscuit. My wife order the "The Avalon" and some pancakes.
