My sister’s restaurant in Memphis, Cafe Eclectic, has opened a second branch. They are getting all kinds of great kudos and attention. I did a c/p of the photo of my niece, Rachel and sister, Cathy Boulden. (FYI – neither one of them can help it if they were hyped into doing the liberal ‘sustainable’ thing. Don’t hold it against them. They can’t help it).
“…A different kind of brew is percolating in Harbor Town. Café Eclectic has opened its second location in the downtown neighborhood.
Like the Vollintine-Evergreen location, the new Café Eclectic has illy brand coffee brewing all day and offers freshly baked treats made from scratch (delivered each day from the Midtown location). Plus, the free Wi-Fi and comfy seats are begging for students and walk-in traffic.
Rachel Boulden, daughter of Café Eclectic’s owner Cathy Boulden, is currently the manager of the Harbor Town location. According to Rachel, “We’re more of a coffee bar than a coffee shop.”
Which is to say the café doesn’t have a full kitchen, and you won’t find the extensive lunch and dinner menu of the Midtown location. But the baked goods are a strong pull — homemade donuts, cookies, pies, fresh breads, bagels, and paninis. The sign reads “More Coming Soon,” but considering the café opened only recently, the spread is impressive. Plus, they’ve already extended their hours. The café is open 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday….”
