The coffee and lattes are great for starters. The omelets are quite good and there is a good variety of fillings. The fried breakfast potatoes are okay and the biscuits above average. Service was attentive.

Stopped here after an overnight stay in Memphis, and had to return a few days later on the return trip. The decor is eclectic, but the breakfast menu is fantastic. So many choices, great muffins and breads.

This place gets a lot of hype as the best breakfast in Memphis. Apparently Rachel Ray endorsed this restaurant. Frankly, I don't get it. Everything we ate was just average. In my opinion, the best breakfast in Memphis is Gibson's Donuts.

They do have a website, Check the Reviews. you may be able to find out more (info). Love this place. Go hungry, portions are rather large. Try the coffee bar while you wait. Caramel Latte is fantastic.
