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!
