Pick-up Instructions: Welcome to the Waffle Shop Drive-Thru!

Enter the alley behind Calvary from Jefferson Ave.  As you pull up under the awning, a volunteer will take your name and deliver the food to you in your car.

If you are walking to Calvary, please approach the door under the red awning behind the church and a volunteer will deliver your order to you.


It’s been 93 years since plates were piled up with waffles, chicken hash, and fish pudding at Calvary’s first Waffle Shop in Lent of 1928. For all that’s changed in our world since then, Memphians still stream to Calvary each year for these three dishes, as well as more “recent” additions such as shrimp mousse, tomato aspic, and Tennessee bourbon pie. Why some of these might not have been on the menu even as long as you’ve been alive! But Waffle Shop has become the ultimate annual comfort food for many, so we are pleased to let you know that it will be up and running again in 2021, a year in which we’ll take all the familiar comforts we can safely get. How it gets to you will change, in keeping with the times, but the essence of Waffle Shop will remain very much alive. And our prayer is that it might be for you a living source of connection not only with the memory of Lents gone by, but with fellow Memphians today, and a small, enduring celebration of the nourishment we depend on one another, for now, more than ever.

Please note that all orders must be placed at least 24 hours in advance.
