This is s busy French influenced Cafe in midtown Memphis. The service was great even though they were one down. The food was light, well flavoured, and was not reliant on burgers and fried food. We can highly recommend their mussels in white wine and...More

On my previous visit, food was very bland, and I didn't want to go again. But my friends insisted, and boy, were they ever wrong about this idea. Mussels were small but pretty tasty. House salad comes with a vinaigrette dressing, which I asked to...More

I have often heard from my mid-town friends how good Café 1912 is but had never had the chance to go there. It is well worth the trip from East Memphis! The service is exceptional. The prices are perfect. And then there is the food!...More
