I can only comment on breakfast, which was fine, though the eggs 'sunny side' came very loose, so would opt for 'over easy' unless this is what you want. Service was very obliging though and we weren't charged for the two eggs which we requested...More

We read that this is one of the oldest restaurants in downtown Memphis so we decided to give it a try for breakfast. It's a typical 50's style diner with standard fare. Breakfast was good and prices reasonable.

My coffee cup had lipstick on the rim. I smudged it with my finger, clearly not washed. Fork had dried cheese on it. The food was very bland, had no taste at all. I would recommend finding somewhere else to eat.

As I recall the prices were on the moderate side. Probably under $10 each for a breakfast.
Is breakfast served all day or does it end at a particular time?
