Bluff City Cafe was a pleasant surprise to our early morning. After finding parking along the street we ducked into Bluff for a quick BF coffee. Ended up with a bagel with egg and cheese and cap. Bagels are so soft and buttery. Cap was a good medium taste and the service was great.

We were limited on time and needed somewhere to grab a quick breakfast close to the National Civil Rights Museum and happened upon this little gem. We could've gone to the Arcade Restaurant which is rated well on the internet and also nearby, but drove by this place and decided we could get in and out quicker.

What we found was a grassroots coffee shop serious about their coffees but equally serious about the delectable, home made pastries, breakfast sandwiches, cookies, brownies and bagels they offer. We ordered an espresso, americano, ham & cheese croissant, cherry yogurt cake, home made cherry pop tart, frittata, sausage egg and cheese on a cheese bagel and on a croissant. Everything was amazingly delectable and incredible! So much so, we ordered another cherry pop tart, chocolate chip cookies and brownie for the road. And boy, was that a great call! The chocolate used in the brownie must be of a high quality as it was superb with layers of complexity and the chocolate chip cookie is buttery, chocolatey and superb as well.

This was the best dining experience I had on our visit to Memphis and would recommend it to anyone!

Typical coffee shop that served as a nice break from our walks around downtown.

GREAT brownie, good enough coffee.

My husband and I stopped at Bluff City Coffee on our way through Memphis because we like to try unique, locally owned businesses. You never know what to expect when seeking out places like that, but Bluff City Coffee was a great find! My mocha was perfect and our breakfast pastries (honey oat scone and coffee cake roll) were delicious. Baked from scratch - and fresh (which isn't always the case at coffee shops). The service was prompt and friendly and atmosphere comfortable. We took some treats for the rest of our road trip (cookies, a brownie, and cinnamon roll), all of which were equally fresh and delicious. Bluff City coffee is now on our can't-go-to/through-Memphis-without-stopping! list.

My husband and I like dark roast coffee, brewed strong in the European style. Most of the coffee we encounter is too weak unless a shot of espresso is added to regular brew. We lucked into two tasty cups of java and delicious healthy muffins (morning glory), stuffed with raisins and nuts. We enjoyed our treat while watching the people along S. Main Street. The two young women who served us were friendly and served us promptly. Thank you!
