Memphis Cafe Review


Memphis Cafe
Pointe Viven - Jesse Bluma. All rights reserved.


If a restaurant does not serve good food, then it is not worth much despite its location, music, or name.  Memphis Cafe gets it right and serves up a menu of good late night happy hour.  That is key to its success along with being offbeat, eclectic, and Southern.  The vibe is jazzy, retro bachelor-pad, and soulful.  If you are in the bad habit of only dining in the over-saturated market of chain restaurants, this is your chance to venture out of your comfort zone.  

My order

zuni flatbread
sage pesto, corn salsa, pepper jack cheese (you may add smoked chicken for $1, I didn't though)


memphis mint julep
evan williams bourbon, sugar, fresh mint served over ice

The flatbread was hearty, although if you are very hungry you may want to oder a bowl of their gumbo too.

The mint julep was nicely strong, nothing like the Disneyland version.
