Great breakfast.

The wait time can be lengthy but the food is excellent. People rave over everything but I can't seem to order anything but biscuits and gravy. I love that.

Quaint older breakfast place that also sells pies to go. Great service, good food, and a bottomless cup of coffee. Park across the street. You may have to wait for a table. Memphis Tiger book store right next door.

Their tee's say Best Breakfast in Memphis...and this is certainly the best we've found so far. It surely seems like everything is made fresh, and while maybe not the healthiest...how can you consider cinnamon-roll pancakes healthy?... it surely is a great way to start the day. Actually, when we have gone (4 out of the last 5 Sundays!) there is... More

After seeing the reviews on trip advisor we decided to have breakfast here, and it was quite possibly the best decision we made in Memphis. The experience starts as soon as you walk in the restaurant. You are welcomed by a very nice host that will take you to your table were you are presented with the menu. This is... More

My husband and I went one Saturday when we couldn't get parking for some other diners. I am so glad we couldn't! When we got here there were a lot of people waiting but the great thing is there is a waiting area where you can get a coffee or tea, read a magazine or a paper and sort of... More

And they have the awards to prove it! Went there with my family and got there 10 minutes before opening on Saturday morning to find a line already formed outside. The opened at 8 on the dot and we 9 were seated right away. Service was excellent with a very interesting and varied menu. I ordered the #4 ham and... More

That's what the t-shirts say, and I can't disagree. Very good omelettes, biscuits. Loved the mismatched coffee mugs. No reservations, but if you download their app, you can put your name on the waiting list. Fills up fast. Expect a wait, but the service is friendly and fast once you're seated. NY Times recommended it, and so do I.

Located near University of Memphis, we decided to try this out based upon others reviews. My husband remembered eating here back in the days when he was a student at Memphis. Our breakfast was fantastic! Great omelets, good coffee, and great biscuits. We will be back the next time we are in town! Luckily we didn't have much of a... More

This place is voted the best breakfast in Memphis, and I have to agree! Great place, fantastic food (no chance you'll leave that place still hungry). Try an omelette, it's fresh and really a good portion! The place is pretty crowded, so be prepared to wait a little, but again, it's totally worth the wait! It's not a fancy restaurant... More

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
