The Best Lunch in Memphis
Cafe Palladio is one of Memphis’ favorite spots for lunch. You’ll know you’re somewhere special from the moment you walk in the door, surrounded by the antiques and artwork of Palladio’s boutique shops. The dining space features hardwood floors, ample natural light, and a welcoming home-like feel, with beautiful art on the walls.
When you sit down you won’t be disappointed. Our lunch menu includes 14 homemade sandwiches daily, plus rotating specials, scratch made soup, and some of the best salads you’ll find in Memphis. All of our menu has a distinct porkSouthern flair, with classics like sweet potato chips, locally sourced smoked & pulled pork and house made peach tea. And, when seasonal ingredients permit, you can always try our famous Fried Green Tomato BLT.
We also offer a wide selection of vegetarian options, plus a kids’ menu for the little ones.
Monday – Saturday: 11:00am – 3:00pm
House-Made Chunky Chicken Salad
Cafe Palladio has always been known for our succulent smoked chicken salad. We start with chicken and slow-smoke it ourselves, using a process we’ve perfected to seal in the moisture and natural flavor of the meat. We then prepare the chicken using our house chicken salad recipe, with grapes, pecans & red onion. The result is a perfectly balanced dish that is at once creamy, earthy and just the right amount of smoky.
Try it on our classic Chunky Chicken Salad sandwich, served on a buttery croissant, or if you prefer, add a hearty serving as a topping to any of our signature salads.
Lunch the Way You Like It
Some of our guests stop in for a quick lunch in the middle of a busy work day. Others bring friends and family for a leisurely get-together. We’ll never rush you. We offer fast, attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere, so you can be in and out fast or stay as long as you like.
