Tasted ~ Cheffie's Cafe


Cheffie's Cafe is an appropriate restaurant to review on Earth Day for many reasons. {1} The new Cheffie's location is convenient to the Memphis Greenline. {2} It shares its entrance and space with Cruiser's bike shop. {3} The menu offers healthy sandwiches and salads with locally sourced ingredients. {4} Cheffie's is in the process of getting Project Green Fork certified.  Unfortunately though, we don't own bikes {yet} and had to drive over last Sunday for lunch. Every table on the large deck patio was taken but we were happy to have a seat in the rustic modern interior dining space.  The warmth of the wood and the large picture box windows made the indoor experience feel much more outdoor. I know I've used that "rustic modern" style description before in the Pielab review with Atticus even wearing the same shirt in those photos, but it's a welcoming comparison.  The communal tables they also had gave a very positive vibe of bringing the community together. Below is a list of what we tasted with favorites marked with an asterick.*

SOPHORN
Crunchy roast beef sandwich with French's crispy fried onions / Corn & bean salad / Pomegranate sweet tea / Tiramisu gelato*

ATTICUS
PB & J* / bottle of mango smoothie / Raspberry gelato*

CHRISTOPHER
Custom built salad with house made bleu cheese dressing* / Dulce de Leche gelato*









We of course had to order a serving of gelato which we did get to enjoy on the deck's tree bench. I didn't want to share my tiramisu gelato whatsoever. Already a tiramisu dessert fan through and through, I now consider Cheffie's gelato version an official "to crave" item.

Celebrate their grand opening tomorrow April 23 from 11:30pm to 6pm with live music on the patio. More details here.
