Memories were better than the food this trip. Still love their vegies, but miss the old location and my memories of great breakfasts and plate lunches.

We were meeting our daughter in Memphis to have a birthday lunch with her. She had listed 8 places near the area where we would be doing some other activities that day. One was the Cottage. I chose it as I love vegetables and had remembered that many years ago I liked this place. She had not been there in... More

Have not been to the Cottage in years but thought we would have a family meal with daughter and her boyfriend. They have moved to 4085 Summer Ave in 2014.The good part is meals are inexpensive and waitress was very nice and attentive. The bad is food was not good. Fries were overdone, burgers were underdone. Wife ordered a vegetable... More

The vegetables here are super, especially the greens, squash, yams, and black eyed peas. My mom always came for the greens when she felt a cold coming on...usually turned the cold off!!! I order toast instead of rolls too.

Mom wanted to go there for lunch and try it in their new location. She got Salmon Patties and Sweet Potatoes and enjoyed them. I got Chicken and Dressing with Squash and could hardly choke it down. She will want to go again, but I will not. For the money, there are many other places to have a better tasting... More

We have gone to The Cottage before, but not since they moved down the street to the new location. Well, the food is still good because it tastes fresh made. I had the Chicken & Dressing which was almost as good as my Yams and Turnip Greens. All that to say, the food is still good. If you haven't tried... More

About 20 tables in a wood paneling open floor plan with an assortment of decorative items on the walls. The waitresses are always friendly. In my experience they are friendly, smiling and attentive. Even on the rare time when they apologize for being short staffed, they're still bringing the coffee by for a refill. The all day breakfast special is... More

We were originally recommended to a better known restaurant down the street but, thankfully, their parking lot was full. We drove another mile or so down the road and found The Cottage. It's not fancy and parking is limited but if you want a good home cooked breakfast, this is the place I would recommend. The eggs were cooked perfectly... More
