Catering can be fun.

Here at Cheffie’s Cafe, we pride ourselves on the fact that we have healthy food options for anyone and everyone regardless of dietary restrictions. Wouldn’t you like to take that kind of culinary freedom to your office or to your next event? We would love for you to, and we are more than happy to  give you options that suit your needs.

If you want to make an impression at your next event or gathering, consult our catering menu to see the multitude of options we have available. We can do something as simple as put together convenient box lunches with our signature sandwiches or we could go big with our build-your-own salad bar. The choice is up to you and we are able to individualize your order to make everything simple for you.

The thing that sets our catering apart is the care in which we take to prepare your order specifically for you. Chains can’t and won’t take the time to make you feel special, so we make a point to do just that.

Our specialty trays are also a wonderful option because they are handcrafted into sandwiches or pinwheels to give your guests opportunity to decide what suits their needs best. We are happy to help you customize your trays or box lunches in any way you think works for your event or gathering.

Take our catering options with you to  Live at the Garden shows, free concerts at the Levitt Shell, and numerous outdoor sporting events. Our food goes where you go.

Let us know how we can help you!

Spring is HERE!

Spring is easily one of our favorite times of year at Cheffie’s Cafe. The flowers in High Point Terrace are vibrant and the families we enjoy serving are riding their bikes or walking everywhere on foot to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Other than the scenery that our neighborhood provides, we are also very proud to say that your neighborhood cafe is a block north of the Shelby Farms Greenline.

The Greenline is a place for sun-starved Memphians to enjoy the sunshine and to get some exercise during their hectic days. Here at Cheffie’s Cafe, we know how important this staple of the community is and we like to encourage all of our guests to take advantage of it.

After you get done enjoying your free time out on the trail, drop by your neighborhood cafe on the corner of High Point Terrace and Philwood Avenue to fuel your body for more fun in the outdoors. We would love to offer you refreshing pomegranate tea or one of our signature menu items packed with fresh, hearty ingredients to undoubtedly soothe your body after all the activities.

Now go outside and enjoy yourself! We’ll see you later :)

Wine Down on Wednesdays with your Neighborhood Manager!

We are pleased to introduce our new manager at Cheffie’s Cafe!

Michael Pittman, a longstanding employee of the Swanky’s Taco Shop & Cheffie’s Cafe family, wants nothing more than to empower his staff, as well as make every single guest feel welcome in his restaurant.

Not only is Michael an avid Tigers fan, he’s a firm believer in the importance of locally owned establishments.

“I take pride in the fact that I get to work for a locally owned company,” says Michael. “I feel challenged and motivated every day and I can’t wait to see what I am able to accomplish with my staff for this awesome neighborhood. Excited is an understatement!”

Michael wants to get to know you and the neighborhood a little bit better. We’re asking you to join us for Wine Down Wednesdays at Cheffie’s, for $2 off all wines every week. Get a glass (or bottle) of wine and chat with your neighborhood manager about his plans for the restaurant, as well as his thoughts about the community.

5 reasons to eat local

Cheffie’s Cafe has been locally owned and operated in the High Point Terrace neighborhood since March 2011.

Being local definitely has its perks: we get to be in the center of a lively neighborhood with some awesome people and pets, we’re a block North of the Greenline, and we get to spend our days preparing unique meals for our community. We provide tons of fresh ingredients and a family-friendly environment that the big chains just can’t compete with.

These all sound like appealing reasons to eat local, but why should YOU eat local?

1. Local shops value you more. We value every single person who walks in the door, which is why we provide the most unique dining experience possible for each guest. We encourage everyone to “Be the Chef” so that they can customize their meals exactly the way they want to.

2. It’s convenient. It is SO much easier and cost efficient for your family to walk or ride bikes to our convenient location located on the corner of High Point Terrace and Philwood Avenue.  You’re going to get fresh, hearty ingredients that will more than fill you up for the ride back to the house.

3. Customer service is better. Cheffie’s CARES about you and your experience at our restaurant. We are here to help you build your dream meal every time you walk in the door: and we do it with a smile.

memphis-cafe-best-salad-sandwich-high-point-terrace-cheffies-cafe-summer-patio-2

4. Local gives back to YOUR community. We use your patronage to help give back to our community. Cheffie’s actively participates in local charitable events every year, such as Cirque du CMOM and the MS Brew Movement (shown below), as well as community initiatives in High Point Terrace. 

ms-brew-movement-cheffies-cafe-charitable-giving-memphis-restaurants

5. Shopping local creates jobs. By being locally owned, Cheffie’s gets to work one on one with our local staff to create the best working environment available.

Are there any other reasons that you choose to eat local? Let us know! We are always looking to find out why our guests enjoy us and what we can do better to make Cheffie’s your first stop.

Memphis Salads & Patios

Last week, we talked about letting Cheffie’s Café be your new go-to lunch destination in Memphis. If you missed that post, you can view it by clicking here.

From Cheffie’s long list of signature sandwiches and salads, we highlighted the tuscan chicken sandwich last week. This week, we would like to introduce you to two things. Our signature house salad and our amazing Memphis patio.

First up today: Cheffie’s house salad.

02-memphis-lunch-restaurant-cheffie's-cafe-large-house-salad-healthy-eating-option-memphis

Starting with a foundation of fresh mixed greens, we add in dried cranberries, red onion, candied Mississippi pecans and feta cheese before topping it off with our delicious, homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing.

01-memphis-lunch-restaurant-cheffie's-cafe-large-house-salad-healthy-eating-option-memphis

The house salad serves as both a vegetarian and gluten-limited menu option. It’s also one of our most basic—yet tastiest—salads, with the dried cranberries adding in the perfect summertime flavor.

You know what else is great for summertime? How about a little al fresco dining?

01-best-memphis-restaurant-with-patio-cheffie's-cafe-drink-on-patio

Cheffie’s is proud to be the home of one of the best outdoor patios in East Memphis. The expansive wood deck with plenty of seating even boasts three large, flat screen TV’s—so you won’t miss a minute of that game while out enjoying some beautiful weather.

02-best-memphis-restaurant-with-patio-cheffie's-cafe-drink-on-patio

Instead of bulldozing the beautiful trees lining the side of the restaurant, we used them to our advantage by building our patio and seating around them. Now they provide some much needed natural shade to the patio seating area. It’s a great place in Memphis to either sit and watch a game, catch up with friends or enjoy a cup of gelato.
