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

Eat at the location near the Memphis Zoo after a terrible experience at the Memphis Zoo (45 minute wait to even get in; then overpriced and overcrowded with dirty restrooms). Really great coffee and bagels and an eclectic atmosphere at this location near Snowden School off of North Parkway on McClean.

Thank grussll
