    The environment is very casual and cozy. Gets busy quickly since it opens at 6:30 a.m. Parking's available along the front or across the street in the open lot. Good food, good coffee(s), good prices.

    Love that they have a Vegan option. Had their Veggie Sausage w/ Scrambled Tofu and it was really good. Nice staff and cool atmosphere. Sucks that they didn't offer dairy-free coffee creamer, though.

    The breakfast place if you live on, near, or far from campus. They have a long wait on the weekends, but they have a great drink bar in the waiting area. Get the hot chocolate!

    Delicious breakfast! Nice, strong coffee that they'll keep refilling for you. Try the spanikopita omelet. So amazing. :-) Friendly staff. One of my fav places in Memphis!

    Best breakfast/brunch in Memphis! Be prepared to wait a ridiculous amount of time unless you get there around 8/9am. Make sure to try something new, it is worth it.

    Best Breakfast in Memphis! On weekends, get there before 9:30 or after 11:30 for quick seating. Open-face omelets and homefries are out of this world! Coffee is killer!
  • Mckinley J.
    Great breakfast place! Worth a visit if you're new to Memphis or lived here a while. Very busy on weekends so be prepared for a wait, but the food is worth it.

    Don't go for the Rachel Ray hype, go for the food! Their home fries are superb and go well with any dish! Best breakfast in Memphis. Now if only they offered Eggs Benedict...
  • Yela P.
    Seriously one of my favorite breakfast places! The gyro is amazing! Make sure to check in via their waiting list app to save your place in line!

    Lives up to its reputation. I had 2 country ham biscuits, 2 scrambled eggs and grits. It was excellent! Nice country atmosphere too.

    Open faced omelets and biscuits are a staple here. I consider it a little piece of home to bring visitors to from out of town after a long night out.

    If here for breakfast/brunch: "Monte Cristo on French Toast" is a MUST. Great balance of sweet & savory; served w/pure maple syrup, of course.

    Best omelettes I've found. It's a little pricy for my college student budget, but the food is definitely worth the price. Worth treating yourself to a yummy breakfast.

    The Denver Omelet is amazing: Ham, cheddar cheese, green peppers, and chives. Biscuits and coffee are among the best.
  • David R.

    They don't accept reservations, but for small parties, they do allow call-ahead. This allows you to potentially cut your wait time considerably if you come on the weekend.

    As we said on the 60's. It has the sickening sweet smell of college intellectualism. Definitely the Obama crowd here. Great food. Lol
