To put it simply... I love this place... I was directed to Brother Juniper's by some college students and their recommendation was absolutely on point. The food is outstanding. While it is a bit of a hole in the wall the atmosphere is good and the service does not disappoint. The coffee, differnt breeads and jellies (made in house) are... More

On a family vacation we had to stop here because of reviews. We got there about 8:30 am on a Tuesday. I'm glad we got seated right away. As we were eating the waiting area filled up quickly. We had the French toast, chocolate chip pancakes, eggs, home fries and bacon. Everything was great. The French toast had hints of... More

Oh my! What a great breakfast experience! The food and the atmosphere is worth the wait. This is one you don't want to miss. We went on a Saturday and Sunday Morning. We waited about 45 minutes. I am looking forward to returning again when in Memphis and bringing family so they can have this pleasurable experience. It is definitely... More

It's been a few years since I reviewed Brother Juniper's. My wife and I stop in several times a year and the quality has never faltered. Management of the place has slowly shifted to the children, but if anything, the food and service is better than my last review a few years back. There always seems to be a wait... More

Had a wonderful breakfast here. The menu has some unusual choices. There were three of us and we all had something different and all were great. The service was excellent. The meals were large and quite filling. Didn't need another meal until dinner. I would highly recommend this place.

This is a great place to have breakfast. It is close to the U of M but worth the drive. We all ordered an open face omelet. They were excellant. Great flavor & presentation. We also had fantastic service. Go early or expect a wait

Had lunch there. Meal was great and was at a great value. They have a lot on the menu so if I'm in the area again, I could go there every day of the trip.

I had heard about this place from some friends whose opinion I trust and had to go. I was not disappointed. Sometimes the lines are long, but is is worth the wait. One of the best breakfasts in Memphis. Can't wait to take the rest of the family.

So, this place has been in Memphis forever and is a regular haunt for locals. The breakfasts have nothing here that you could not particularly make at home as easy, but it is all very good. Great cheese grits and biscuits in particular. Tends to be packed on Saturday mornings.

Ate here with my wife and 2 best friends on the recommendation of the young front desk gal at our hotel. The food was incredible, the staff was highly attentive and we never felt ignored!! Just wish this were closer to our home!!!
