“Memphis' Oldest Cafe, Since 1919”

Third generation owners Harry and Karan Zepatos can now be found running the day to day operations of the Arcade. There have been many changes over the years, but great care has been taken to preserve the old-time charm. So while the glowing neon signs and the 1920's architecture may transport you to the past, the pesto, feta, and walnut pizza will bring your taste buds to the present.The South Main Historic District, the whistle of the trolley, and the Arcade Restaurant... it doesn't get any more Memphis than this!

Great service and good food in an interesting atmosphere. Good place to stop after a tour of the Civil Rights Museum 2 blocks away... You will feel like you stepped back in time.

Food was great and great service. Cool place to visit with it sending you back in time. Oldest restaurant in Memphis with different movies being filmed there such as Walk the Line.

Step back in time and enjoy some Great food and fun atmosphere, the benches and tables are the same ones Elvis eat at, but that's what makes it fun. Staff was friendly, but busy. The food was great. We had the sweet potatoes pancakes and French toast, unique and fantastic.

Slow service, bad service, average food. Neat to see something old & maintained/restored. Something different here, just old and run down. Place felt dirty. Could be cool with some work, but basically just old. Defiantly not worth a special trip.

My wife ordered the sweet potato pancakes and I got traditional pancakes with blueberries. Both came with bacon and eggs. We both thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast. The staff was also very helpful in directing us to a good spot to check out the Mighty Mississippi right after we ate.
