An Eastern Orthodox Priest runs this unassuming restaurant. It is often difficult to find a table, but worth the wait. Try the huge, fluffy homemade rolls, both wheat and white. The omelets can be ordered with a variety of toppings including spinach, mushrooms and feta cheese. On the side, try the sauteed potatoes, which can be topped with black beans, Swiss cheese, green onions or salsa. The decor is simple with red and white checkered tablecloths and few pictures. There are two dining rooms or you may eat at the bar. Classical music makes this a pleasant place to start the day.
The Majestic Grille has a long history in Memphis. A century ago, it was known as the Majestic No. 1, a theater that played silent films. It has since been renovated and turned into a restaurant, but it still plays old movies on a projection screen so you can enjoy a show while you dine. The restaurant is involved in the arts, and inside, you'll find local artists' work featured. With a full bar, this restaurant is the complete package. Come for brunch and enjoy mimosas and bloody Mary's. On the menu, you'll find flatbread pizzas, burgers, steaks, and pasta dishes.
What began as a small neighborhood coffee-shop in 2008 has now expanded to multiple locations in Memphis. The original Midtown location of Cafe Eclectic exudes warm vibes as you enter it, and you are instantly allured with their splendid fare. The bakery section of the cafe serves freshly-baked pies, muffins and scones while their excellent list of coffees keep you company. Hearty breakfasts and brunch feature on the menu as well, continuing into leisurely meals for lunch. A classic soda fountain makes a charming appearance and you can re-live days of yore by splitting an ice-cream sundae with your sweetheart. Cafe Eclectic has something for everyone, so discover the delights they have to offer and you won't be disappointed.
Best-known for its hearty breakfasts, this is also a good bet for a sandwich, catfish plate, or a meat-and-three plate lunch served with cornbread. It's the kind of place that when it says steak, it's chopped sirloin smothered with onions or plain. And don't pass up the homemade desserts here. Choose from Chocolate Meringue, Vanilla Chess, or Southern Pecan. If you do come for breakfast, you'll find yourself eating country ham and some of the best biscuits in town with a group of regulars - some of who eat breakfast here every day.
