Had to wait a little while for our table to be cleaned & to get service but the sweet potato pancakes were well worth the wait. I took one bite of the Elvis peanut butter sandwich and couldn't stand it but my daughter loved it.

If you are visiting you need to stop in. I really enjoy their hamburgers, but you also have to give the Peanut Butter and Banana sandwich a try, just for a salute to Elvis. Another of my favorites is the Fried Chicken Salad.

We only had one morning to have breakfast in Memphis and this restaurant was recommended by the front desk at our hotel. Nice artsy neighborhood and unique inside. Unfortunately we had terrible service. Seemed very unorganized. Wait staff was also cashier, bussing tables and seating customers. Took forever for someone to acknowledge us when we came in and then also... More

I liked the vibe and that it is one of the oldest restaurants in Memphis. Elvis used to have a booth at the back. The staff was friendly too. That said, the breakfast itself was just ok. Eggs. over cooked ham and somewhat soggy hashbrowns. I would not likely return. Perhaps I was so impressed with the brunch at the... More

We ate brunch at the Arcade last week. I ordered a Mimosa and the Redneck Eggs. Ha. I liked the name but the meal was fantastic. I loved the spicy sausage. It was enough that we could have shared it but we didn't know that so we had take home boxes for both of our meals. The staff was very... More

My sister and I visited the Arcade on a Sunday morning. We must have hit it just before the crowds got there because we sat ourselves immediately. I hope our waitress was just having a bad morning because a smile or welcoming attitude was not present at our table. The food, sweet potato pancakes with a scrambled egg, was ok,... More

I must say I am a little partial as I know the family that owns this joint and I LOVE them! The staff is amazing and you get the kind of service that can be hard to come by and dates back to the old Woolworth diners! Good old fashioned service through and through! The breakfast is awesome.

I found this place on Groupon and had actually seen it on Trip Advisor, so decided we'd try it. I'm so glad we did! I was feeling adventurous and wanted to try something different, so I got the Mystery Train sandwich. It is truly a meatless wonder! It was absolutely delicious! My husband had the chicken fried steak with eggs... More

We usually can't get into this place because of the crowds but we hit it at the right time and got a table. The pancakes, sausage, omelets, and hash browns are wonderful. Service is fast and very affordable.

Food was excellent, service was good. Inexpensive and convenient as it is on the trolley route. There was a woman faking a heart condition again, (apparently this is an every couple of months thing) and though it was obvious what she was doing and the staff knew her, they still gave her the to go food she had ordered after...
