Cafe Keough


The Daughter and I went downtown earlier this summer and spent the afternoon. We had lunch at Cafe Keough, which is a relatively new spot, and sat outside. The chairs are actually comfortable! I had the spinach and feta quiche and side salad, and she had the ham and cheese quiche and the fruit salad:


I had espresso, and she had Earl Grey tea. Doesn't this look yummy? It tasted good, too. You can check out the menu here. I paid about $7, I think, for my meal.

The I Love Memphis blog says it feels like a neighborhood cafe. Choose 901 has a positive review. Urban Spoon gives it a score of 96%. Yelp gives Cafe Keough 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. They have a Facebook page.

The cafe is located on Main Street just a block or so north of Union, so we parked at Parking Can Be Fun's garage:


and walked up to the cafe from there. After we ate we walked up north a ways, then turned around and headed back south. We stopped for a treat at The Peanut Shoppe:


It's a Memphis institution since 1949. They have a wide variety of peanuts, popcorn and sweet treats. The staff is delightful. They have a Facebook page. The Urban Spoon gives it a rating of 92%. Yelp gives it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. It's as cute as can be, and it's fun to take The Daughter to a place I went when I was little.

We kept heading south. I dropped a get well card in the mail at the main post office, and we went down to Beale Street and turned east. Walking down Beale Street, we looked over our options for where to eat the next time we're downtown. As we were walking, we took a picture of Elvis:


I just love this town!

  1. AHHH! The OTHER Peanut Shoppe. This one looks like it has more atmosphere.

    Your quiche and salad look yummy. I would eat that. And it looked reasonably priced, too. I'll have to check out their menu, even though I'm nowhere near Memphis (grin). Nothing like good publicity, is there?

    I enjoyed your walk around town, too. Memphis has SO much to offer. You should be their designated tour guide.

    Thanks for sharing Memphis and lunch for T this week. Now I need an espresso!

    1. I need to start getting interior shots of these places. I keep forgetting that part.

      Espresso is always what's needed! :)

  4. Lunch looks great. I enjoy tours of towns I will probably never see in person. I've learned a lot about Memphis from your posts. I think you live in a great town that has lots to offer. Keep going out and showing us new places please.

    My daughter just showed me her Memphis album--she loved it there, said it was like being back in the day. I'm an Elvis fan and I think she is now for sure :)

      I haven't made quiche in years, but I need to get my recipe out. Happy T-Day :)
