“Memphis' Oldest Cafe, Since 1919”

Memphis's oldest cafe was opened in 1919, but it wasn't until the '50s when The Arcade really came into its own as a classic diner. With a menu of staples like biscuits and gravy, sweet potato pancakes, grits, cheeseburgers, catfish, and more, you'll probably leave stuffed. Plus, their menu features Elvis Presley's famous favorite sandwich: a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich with bacon.

Tip: If it's open, ask to be seated in Elvis' regular corner booth!
