Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: Germantown's Petra Cafe, plus scores

(WMC TV) - THIS WEEK'S BIG TIP:  Petra Cafe, 9155 Poplar Ave., The Shops of Forest Hill, Germantown, TN, 901-755-5440, Petra Cafe on Facebook

Petra Cafe Germantown customer, come on down!

You're the next contestant in "Which Server is Petra Cafe's Owner?"

"She will come out to the table, introduce herself -- in fact, some people don't know she's the owner of the restaurant because she just acts like one of the servers, which is a really nice touch," said regular Cresley Weatherford.

Tasha Leach is a nice change of pace for a restaurant owner.

In a former life, she was a practice administrator for Methodist Hospital. That experience shaped her penchant for cleanliness, customer service and her "table-side" manner.

"Share with people. Invite them in," she said. "Just make them feel like it is a home environment."

You can't get food like Leach's at home, though.

We're talking Mediterranean flavor where the dishes are healthy and so are the portions.

"She puts in, often times, new little treats or she'll say, 'Here's a little something extra I want you to try out and give me feedback on,'" said customer Patty Schoelkopf.

The best feedback Leach receives is about her enthusiasm and genuine interest in the lives of her customers. Shoe soles have never worn so fast on floor tiles as Leach pinballs from table to table.

"I really don't feel (like) an owner. I feel like I'm a partner with everybody here, just sharing in the experience," she gushed.

Sharing and serving heaping portions of Petra Cafe health and happiness!
