    Service is generally slow, but it is locally owned, green fork certified, and very popular. Try the diablo or black bean wrap, stuffed French toast, or sunshine tators. Scones and coffee are great.

    Quant little place! The latte I had was perfect, in an over-sized mug perfect for warming your hands. The Challah French Toast was delicious too. Service was slow, but friendly so it made up for it.

    This restaurant probably has the best service in all of Memphis. Everything is delicious, and they don't break my bank. Healthy food+great service=A+ for Cafe Eclectic.

    Try the Grilled Cheese - Traditional grilled cheese, but with a delicious twist: made with provolone on ciabatta! Goes nicely with the beef & mushroom soup, for dipping.

    The roast beef panini was perfect. Super juicy beef, the caramelized onions were a great touch! Waitstaff was nice and attentive but not annoying. Great place!

    Daily vegetarian specials. Patty Melt on ciabatta bread was yum with black bean veggie patty. Side salad with strawberry vinaigrette was nice but small. Wife enjoyed black bean quesadilla's.

    Eclectic dog, Greek lemon soup and Dragon Eye Oolong tea is simply the best. For a special valentine's day treat try the raspberry white chocolate brownie. Your taste buds will thank you :)

    Pretty much everything on the menu is great. They have old school sodas and coke that's hecho en mexíco. So none of that corn syrup stuff.

    One lady got a big fluffy waffle. Another got a strangely flat waffle. The difference was at least 0.5 inch thickness. We think that was due to how busy the cooks were during a crowded time. Flat.

    It has a great atmosphere and coffee. If you aren't there to eat, go somewhere else. If you are there to study or read and drink coffee for longer than 30 minutes, they will rudely ask you to leave.

    They can't cook eggs, over cooked or under cooked.The eggs are very oily, even scrambled. When they're busy a creepy eyed lady keeps yelling "runner" to help get food served. It's really annoying.
