Hard to choose but I got the inside out patti melt, while it was really good, I got a taste of a friends Salmon Eggs Benedict ... which I went with that. $5 mimosa ...

Really fun place, cool vibe, good music. Mimosa tower was too novel not to try! Chicken & Waffles was very good, Chicken fried steak was as well. Our server was good, friendly. The hostess was less than welcoming, no smile, seemed disinterested. I'd go again.

Bloody Mary's and Mimosas were a hit. 2 meals arrived cold; sent back and quickly came back with new plates hot options. The inside out sandwich was a disappointment either the bread was stale initially or it was overprepared. Steak was over cooked but accepted. Music is really loud for Sunday brunch. Difficult to hear each other.

Strictly based on the food and atmosphere, this was one of the best meals we had in Memphis. Went for Sunday brunch and the chef's special--a Montecristo--was amazing. The wife's banana/peanut butter pancakes were a little light on the bananas, but she asked for extra bananas and eventually received them. We loved the mid/late 90s rock soundtrack. The menu was...

$2.50 bloody Mary's and mimosas need I say more?? But I will...red velvet pancakes, s'mores waffles, cheddar grits and that's just brushing the menu. Worth the wait!!

This was my first time eating dinner here. I have only been for brunch but oh was dinner a treat. I had the steak sandwich with loaded macaroni and cheese and it was delicious. It was also $5 martini night. They had a vast array of martinis to choose from so you can't go wrong.

We were staying in a nearby hotel and walked to this restaurant. The look is very hip/had a great vibe. The food was just OK- not bad but not great. Service was just OK as well- had to track our server down to get drink refills. Our server also smelled strongly of cigarette smoke (I think I know where he... More

I enjoyed a Sunday brunch with friends. I recommend the mimosa bong...tasty and plenty to share. The grits were to die for, the breakfast potatoes were delicious. Not a fan of the sausage. Service was great! I'll go back for sure!

Service was not friendly, but it was fast. The brisket with truffle mac and cheese ($16) was really delicious, even though I couldn't find the truffle. The iceberg wedge salad ($10) was also pretty good. Desert menu offers only 2 options and they were out of one. Ambience was nice and cool, good music on the radio.

Great atmosphere- hipster, for sure. Personally, the mimosa was my favorite flavor of the day. My friends enjoyed their meals for the most part. I had the gourmet patty melt, but it just wasn't my taste. I loved their home-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth potato chips. Everyone else got breakfast foods- like Oreo waffles. The portions are were just right. Tip: The mimosa... More
