    I visit Café Eclectic on a regular. I love their service and their food is even better! This day I had the whole nine yards. Which included bacon, eggs with American cheese, grits and biscuits. Everything was delicious. My one and only complaint was that the orange juice was not unlimited and it came in a very small size glass compared to the water. Me and my friend selected to dine outside on their patio. (Side walk needs some work) All in all I still give it a 5/5. None of those negatives would stop me from visiting.

    A nice, hip and cool brunch place. We sat in the patio, although the chilly fall morning didn’t treat us good 😂. The coffee was good. I had a cup of cappuccino where as my partner got a cup of Mayan coffee. It was with a hint of chili pepper, which I feel weird in the coffee. But he said that he liked that. I ate some platter with scrambled eggs, house made sausage Pattie, biscuits and grits. The sausage was spicy and good, however a little hard. The eggs and the grit were usual. The biscuits were good. I got some pancake as a side as well. I couldn’t eat that, so took it home. It was a pretty basic pancake. My bf ate some omelette with sausage and other stuff inside. It came with a English muffin. Overall the food was nothing over the top fancy, but pretty decent. I loved it.

    Beautiful Cafe 6 minutes outside from the city. Fantastic service and enthusiastic owner with a passion to put forth great a great product. I ordered the Cafe Burger: Two all-beef patties, yellow cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato,pickles,red onion, mustard & mayo on a whole wheat bun. The burger was cooked to perfection, the mustard and mayo with the pickles gives the burger a good complement of flavors. They do not carry french fries anymore. All deserts are made in house, and the red velvet cake was absolutely delicious. I recommend to order one for two, big portion.

    Phenomenal!!! Best Caramel Mocha Latte I’ve ever had! Pumpkin Pancakes were delicious & Amber was a wonderful server!! I highly recommend this café and will be coming back next time I visit Memphis.

    New favorite cafe!! Everyone was so nice, we were seated very quick and only had to wait about 10 minutes for our food! I got a caramel latte and a sunny tater hash. Both were amazing 🙂 My mom got quesadillas and absolutely loved them. Definitely recommend visiting here!

    A chic, and hip coffee place to spend time. I took out my morning coffee and bagel. But next time I’m gonna chill here with my laptop. They have plenty of seats both inside and outside. They have a cute hippie themed gift shop as well. Their menu looks good. The coffee was great. Mocha is not good everywhere, but here they get it right. They took a little long time to toast a bagel. However, the jalapeño cheddar bagel was fine. Overall, I can’t wait to go back.

    Google map says, that they are open until 8 pm, which is not true. They close at 3 pm.

    Made it here today and I was not disappointed. The coffee was grand and the food was delicious. We took a break from our travels across the US. If you are ever searching for a great place to have food and beverage you will not go wrong with this establishment. The shop itself is very inviting. Enjoy!

    The spot is eclectic and great place for conversation or working remote. I ordered the salmon plate..smokiness flavor on point but had fishy aftertaste and bagel was near burnt. The vanilla latte had about 2 inches froth on top so purchased a home brew cup of coffee with steamed half..again the froth was super thick. Barista was annoyed with my request for light frothiness and bad attitude…ended up just getting a plain coffee …spent about $30 bucks and not super satisfied. Would only go back for cup of coffee since it’s local

    This place had the best environment. it gave off such a friendly,hippie welcoming coffee shop and the coffee itself was great! the workers are super nice and we got our coffee quickly and overall it was a great experience.

    Great spot! I love cortados. Unfortunately, it’s hard to find a well-made one. But Otherlands here it right. We were on a schedule, so we picked up croissants to go with our coffees. (Meh.) However, the cooked food that walked by looked tasty, definitely worth trying.

    We had our pup with us, so we sat in the backyard/deck area. Super relaxing.

    I really want to like UM: it’s local, it’s kitschy, it’s very close to my house. However, the coffee is typically too weak and the only vegan item on the menu is a pack of Kirkland hummus and prepackaged baby carrots. It’s good as far as it goes, but it’s not hard to do a little more and have a few great products. Also, I was surprised at the amount of old, dusty appliances on the ceiling, often just above food & drink prep areas.

    A tiny, cool cafe in Memphis area. I was the last person ordered a large mocha through driveway, before they closed for the day. Being a very late hour, there were nothing left to eat, sadly! The coffee was good. I am going back soon.
    ✭✭✭✭ By Debisree Ray (8 months ago)
    Pretty good little coffee shop. Decided to try the snickerdoodle coffee. I liked it and appreciate that I can get soy milk as an alternative. I also had the hummus with carrots (not pictured.) I only wish there were slightly better snack options. Other than that, I see myself returning here.

    This place is so cute! It has patio seating as well as a drive thru. The service was amazing ! And it was so cool in the inside! I had a snicker doodle latte which was amazing

    We wanted a good coffee were it was made right. This was the place. Me and my wife got the Caramel Macchito. We both on wanted one pump of vanilla a extra shot and whip on top. We got that. Thank you for a wonderful first experience.

    Coffee is good, and the food is bad. Period. The coffee is actually good. I tried a cup of hot mocha latte and it was great. However, I ordered an avocado toast too ( with fried eggs and bacons on top). That was terrible. To my surprise they served two pieces of breads. However, the avocado spread was not good, I doubt if that’s made fresh! The fried eggs and bacons were greasy. As a whole it was not good. However, the coffee was great. The cafe looks cool, with many tables and couches. There’s a paid parking just beside the cafe. So you don’t have to worry about the parking. The have beers too on tap, however, I haven’t tasted. I will probably go back to drink more coffee at this place.
    ✭✭✭✭ By Debisree Ray (a year ago)
    Good find in Memphis for coffee early in the day. The coffee is good but I have to say I would skip the avocado toast with eggs and bacon next time. It tasted fine but was not worth the price I paid for it
    ✭✭✭✭ By Mark Betteridge (a year ago)
    I came into this location as I was passing through the area and I’m not sure what the issue must have been with the baristo that I approached to ask questions. He was extremely rude and condescending toward me as I attempted to ask about the vegan options and alternatives, to which he knew nothing about. He shrugged when I asked him about the vegan options and ignored my attempt to decipher their menu on my own by walking way from the counter. I refused to purchase coffee because I knew he’d be the one tampering with it. Although the vegan breakfast burrito I sampled was absolutely delicious I couldn’t not offer this location any more than 2 stars due to the ill-mannered service I received. I do hope they replace the man I spoke to with someone more genuine, cheerful and attentively knowledgeable. I was facetiously condescending while accosting him and as I finalized my purchase I expressed how unprofessional it was for him not to know the items or foods sold at a location where he worked. You’d think the menu and options would be common barista knowledge, at least that’s what I would presume since I’ve worked in the service industry myself, in the past.

    Tried the tennessean, tasted good but it was way too sweet for me. They have a fun gaming area in the shop with old Nintendo classics which was cool to see.
    ✭✭✭✭ By Parwinder Taank (6 months ago)
    Im not a coffee drinker so maybe thats the problem but my friend and I came here expecting decent breakfast and it was, simply put, pretty horrible and overpriced. I ordered avocado toast with eggs and it was immediately clear that not only was everything on the plate pre frozen (including the avocado!) but it was bland and the texture tough. My friend had a similar experience. All the baked good are frozen and shipped in also, I asked.

    Great spot! Quiet and not long to wait for food, great options for treats and coffee. Good breakfast sandwiches! Very yummy cookies and pop tarts. Had the Egg white and Turkey sausage sandwich and loved it. Had a great chat with my colleague here while everywhere else was crazy crowded during Saturday brunch. Wish there were more seating options though.

    Beautiful little spot for a quick bite or a coffee. Both food and coffee were outstanding and there were also baked goods that looked incredible! Located very close to the National Civil Rights Museum. Would definitely recommend here to anyone that appreciates good coffee.

    We stopped here for breakfast and coffee while on vacation. The Haley’s Comet was absolutely delicious! We had bacon egg and cheese croissants. I think the croissants were cooked amazingly well with a perfect flakey texture, but they were on the oily side. Flavor was absolutely there, as was the customer services. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommend you stop in and try it!

    The cafe looks fancy and cool, right on the Main Street. We stopped by for a quick breakfast on Saturday. It was a lazy day, not much packed. We took a chicken biscuit, a sausage biscuit, a muffin and a slice of key lime cake along with coffee. The mocha was not very good, the macchiato was fine. The sausage biscuit was great, but the chicken biscuit was not good. The biscuits were house baked I assume, and those were terrific. The chicken patty in the chicken biscuit was not very impressive. It was soggy and very bland and basic ( like a frozen one). The sausage patty was rather tastier. The muffin ( or duffin as it was written) was dry and not much interesting. The key lime cake was rather moist and good, for those who can out-stand the strong flavor of key lime. We sat on the patio outside. It was a nice experience altogether.

    Excellent espresso drinks, great breakfast sandwiches. The homemade poptarts are especially good – try the fruit ones (raspberry is my favorite). The bagels are fluffy and still have the bite on the exterior that I expect from a good bagel.
