Crowded but great food

If you have to wait, it's definitely worth it. You can't get a breakfast like this anywhere else in Memphis. Delicious!

We went for breakfast one Saturday morning. The waitress was nice but not too friendly. The sitting area was small. The open face omelets were very good and large portions. The old house and traditional entree choices gives this restaurant an "old-time" feeling.

Walkers and Wheelchairs could have a little problem. The restaurant can get really crowded. It is located in an old house and the tables are fairly close together. Having said that the folks that served us were very nice and seemed like they would do anything to make a person comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic! The prices were very reasonable... More

One of the few things I miss about not living in the city, is being so far away from Brother Juniper's. My wife and I go as often as we can. That "Best Breakfast in Memphis" on the sign is more than just advertising. Everything in the menu is spectacular. The Eggs Benedict is tops, the omelettes are great, and... More

Whenever my husband and I are in Memphis, this is a must stop for breakfast. The previous stops at this restaurant were always on Sundays and the wait was usually an hour or so. We ate breakfast there today, on a Tuesdat, and the wait was just 15 or 20 minutes. Whatever the wait time, it is worth waiting. My... More

Brother Juniper's has a fantastic breakfast, and you could make an argument that it's the best in Memphis, but the wait on the weekend can be absolutely brutal. It's not THAT much better than other places to justify waiting an hour+ IMO. Go during the week (closed on Monday!) or go somewhere else.

Western Ham & Cheese Omelet with Skillet potatoes was succulent. The Salmon Benedict on flaky, melt-in-your-mouth buiscuts was heavenly! I would DEFINITELY return to this little cafe near the University of Memphis. The coffee is also notable!

I love a good weekend breakfast place and Brother Juniper's ranks among the top ones I have been to. We were in Memphis to take our son to the airport and ate there for a nice send-off. Warning--be prepared to wait! It was a rainy, cool Memphis morning and waiting is all outside under a covered porch, but this did... More

I guess the reviews were so good I expected something more. Had the omelet with grits. It was a good omelet. Nothing terribly special. The grits were great. Grits as a side was very small portions, so upgrade to the bowl if you are a grit fanatic.
