Just around the corner from the National Civil Rights Museum. This is quite a nice little place. We had lattes which were excellent. We were charged $8.50 for 2 small ones to drink in, which I thought was a bit expensive. Free wifi.

We made a quick stop into Bluff City for coffee and road snacks as we traveled through Menphis, choosing this based on others recommendations. We're adding our own recommendation now! The espresso was made very well and our pastries were excellent! Worth your stop!
