When downtown, Memphians looking for a good breakfast or meat-and-two lunch go straight to the Arcade, the landmark restaurant located in the heart of the South Main Historic Arts District.
The city's oldest cafe has been serving quality food since 1919. Hollywood is on to the historic cafe; it's been featured in a number of Memphis-filmed movies, including The Firm.
The restaurant does open during the evenings from time to time, but it's best experienced at lunch for one of the daily specials. It's especially good when the banana pudding is served for dessert.
