Cafe Eclectic

We’ve eaten at Café Eclectic many times for lunch and dinner but this past Sunday got a chance to try their brunch menu. They had plenty of special dishes such as The French Omelet with fresh spinach, white cheddar, and crème fraiche, but we ventured down the path of just plain comforting. The waffle which Atticus devoured is described on the menu as “The traditional waffle, why change what works?”


Comfort is what they aim for, from the cozy couch seating and live music to the extensive menu including coffees, pastries and breads made from fresh ingredients. Situated on the corner of a midtown residential neighborhood, Café Eclectic has achieved owner Cathy Boulden’s vision of giving the community a second home to socialize and enjoy just a simple cup of coffee.


We are so thankful that they just recently opened for Sunday brunch. A laidback Sunday morning was the best time to enjoy the atmosphere of live music provided by talented guitarists Chip Henderson and John Bass, music professors at nearby University of Memphis and Rhodes College respectively. They plan to play every Sunday at the café. Definitely check them out next week.


What they offer
Classic Soda Fountain
Homemade doughnuts and desserts
Fresh bread
Coffees and Teas
Soups / Sandwiches / Salads
You can read more about the café and see their menu at http://www.cafeeclectic.net/



What we recommend {so far}
The Hamburger ~ Locally raised Black Angus Beef and non-traditional bun makes it the best around.
The Brie and Fresh Pear Sandwich ~ The honey coating on the toasted bread adds the little extra wow.
The BLT&A ~ The classic BLT with the A for Avocado and Awesome.
And of course, The Traditional Waffle
