This cute coffee bar in midtown is the perfect place to spend time over the summer. Otherlands usually features live music on Friday and Saturday nights, and it is an excellent way to meet artists, musicians and writers. It is also great place to visit for a cup of tasty coffee, and something off the food menu, such as one of their delectable bagel sandwiches.


Summer would not be complete without pizza, and Memphis Pizza Cafe offers delicious food at a reasonable price.There are five different locations with a large variety of pizzas, salads and sandwiches available. The restaurant has won the “Best Pizza” competition in both the Memphis Magazine’s Subscriber’s Poll and the Memphis Flyer’s Reader’s poll annually since 1994. The pizza dough is made fresh daily, and Memphis Pizza Cafe ensures that only the freshest ingredients are used as toppings.


To satisfy a craving for Mexican Food, Las Tortugas is the place to go. The restaurant boasts a refusal to Americanize the process and presentation of cooking traditional Mexican cuisine. Las Tortugas imitates the taquerias of Mexico City and serves high quality authentic Mexican food. The salsa is a delicious Pico de Gallo, and the chips are handmade.


The Muddy’s staff begins each day baking their pastries from scratch. The menu constantly changes as new cupcakes are tried out, but it is first come first serve, so if they run out of a certain flavor, customers are out of luck. There is a wide range of interesting pastries to try, and there are even a few vegan options. The staff does not charge for coffee refills or accept tips, and the shop tries to give back to the community through monthly donations to local non-profit organizations.
