Really great coffee/sandwich joint downtown. The coffee is great, the food is legit good, and the staff is friendly. Good place to work (I even conducted an interview here) but also just to escape and enjoy a cold brew in Memphis in the summer.

Went here two days in a row for breakfast, choosing the Bagel & Lox both times as it was amazing. Lovely little place to sit and relax over breakfast and a coffee. Definitely recommend it if you are in the area.

Large space with high ceilings, it is quite inviting for a coffee and/or snack. It's definitely more appropriate in the downtown area than say the more commercial and boisterous Beale Street. I'd given up on Beale Street and just walked down S Main looking for...More

Two visits during our three days, this proved to be a good place for breakfast, although the service could have been snappier the second time around. Quite inexpensive and with a range of good options for breakfast.

Coffee is good, breakfast Croissant's are good but service is really slow. Chap who serves you is a nice guy but the guy in the woolly hat who brings food out is so miserable he is clearly in the wrong job, or is just generally...More
