This place is not at all up to speed with the expansion of our nation's dietary restrictions or demands. Small diner with greasy food and if you're Vegan enjoy the fruit bowl or plain salad without cheese.

My wife and I recently went to the Arcade for Brunch. If you don't know, the Arcade is a landmark in Memphis and we simply had to go. It is also across the street from the Amtrak Rail Station. First, we decided on Breakfast - great choice. I saw that they had Sweet Potato Pancakes and noted that it was... More

Try the sweet potato pancakes, even if you don't like sweet potatoes. The biscuits and gravy are also good. Great service and prices are good also.

We went for breakfast and the food was great. I thought we got a lot of food for the price. The pancakes were great and my son loved the French toast and he's super picky about what he likes. The booth was a little small, but it was okay since the food was so good.
