Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: Cheffie's Cafe, plus scores

(WMC TV) - THIS WEEK'S BIG TIP:  Cheffie's Cafe, 483 High Point Terrace, East Memphis, 901-343-0488.

Located two-tenths of a mile north of where the Shelby Farms Greenline crosses High Point Terrace, Cheffie's Cafe has catered (quite literally) to healthy lifestyles and local food producers since its March opening.

"We get a lot of local produce. We slice everything fresh every day," said Cheffie's General Manager Drew Ward. "Healthy eating, healthy living. There's lots of exercise enthusiasts who come through. Lots of bikers. Lots of runners."

They carb up on sandwiches, paninis and salads (with homemade dressings!). Customers can select straight from Cheffie's signature menu or "Be The Chef."

"You can build your own salad, build your own sandwich," Ward said. "We try to host a custom dining experience with fresh food. We got about 50 ingredients."

"I make my own sandwich," said Midtown's Susan Schwartz, sweaty from a go on the Greenline. "Just chicken and cheese and banana peppers."

Cheffie's is a great place to watch the ball game, too. Craft beers -- including Ghost River's local lineup -- a gelato bar and flat-screen TV's get you pumped for your next athletic event.

Maybe even one that's taking place two-tenths of a mile to the south...
