Why historic? This very nice fine dinning eclectic restaurant on Evergreen has served generations of mid town Memphians with great service and food. Always good and always ready to make for a great evening.

Here is our menu, Caesar salad, bisque, salmon,duck, cho.bonbon. The place is quaint, clean,the staff truly southern. A bit slow, but better than being rushed.
The food was high quality, the cooking was to perfection, all could have used a bit more seasoning, it all wanted to taste good but just left you waiting for that boy i cant wait for the next bite.It was srill a wonderful evening and I would say go try and enjoy.

I agree with other reviewers that this cafe is a bit loud. Some nice choices among appetizers combined with salads for light supper before a concert or play.Love the desserts! A friend of mine's car was broken into in the parking lot here on a separate visit, so take care not to leave anything valuable in your vehicle.

Have eaten here several times with groups and also as a couple. They have wonderful food and the service is always friendly. Ambiance is just average, but we go for the food!

We enjoyed the atmosphere when the chatter from the kitchen/back didn't drown out our conversation, and we were seated as far from the kitchen as you can get and still be inside. My husband's selections all had wonderful flavor - creamy mushroom soup, crab cakes, and duck breast. My selections left a bit to be desired. The BLT salad was so coated with dressing it looked as if they were trying to hide old lettuce. Bacon wrapped shrimp had tough, over cooked shrimp and undercooked bacon. The veal picatta had a very loose, bland sauce that had apparently been applied too soon as the breading on the veal was soggy and falling off. The veal was served over pappardelle which due to the loose, bland sauce was dry and without much flavor. Service was great but only one other couple in the entire place. Very disappointed in the food for the price.
