Breakfast Beckons Brother Juniper gets great reviews and has won lots of awards for their breakfasts. I can see why. The French toast was delicious and the omelet was large and flavorful. All the breads and biscuits are home-made and really good. The grits were even pretty good. The country ham was even saltier and tougher than normal and I... More

This is one of the good ones! We waited an hour but I'm on vacation! The staff was nice and very fast! The food was good and hot! We had an 11 month with us and they were very accommodating! The Blueberry pancakes were some to write home about fluffy and light and the berries were fresh!

Their biscuits are everything to me. I haven't had a biscuit in forever (healthy eating lifestyle) and this was a special treat. As a matter of fact, the entire meal was a treat. Please make sure that you get a biscuit. The wait was about 45 minutes (I'm from Chicago, I'm used to it. The was a short wait for... More

If you are not paying attention, you just might miss this spot. It's filled to the brim on a Saturday morning with college students, hipsters and massive amounts of family members. I personally loved the Monte Cristo but my wife thought it was just ok. I would recommend it!

Forget about that free breakfast at your hotel-go to Brother Junipers instead. This was the best meal we had in three weeks of traveling. I had an Off the Border Omelette and a sister had a muffin that was so delicious she ordered three more to go.

Great breakfast but wife's was not hot. Breakfast burrito is huge - enough potatoes for an army. Could be split between two people. Sweet waitress named Nikki. Right next to the Tiger Bookstore of University of Memphis. Lucked out with no line but there was one when we left - got there before 9 AM. Recommended.

Brother Juniper's is a small little establishment that is big on variety and taste. The menu has all sorts of unique dishes that sounded great. I had the monte cristo - ham and swiss cheese between slices of French toast. It was great with just a little maple syrup on it, which came on the side. I also had the... More

Best biscuits I've ever tasted. Same with the sausage patties. Hash browns were sublime. Incredibly rich cheese grits. And that's all I remember before slipping into the food coma. Worth the 20-minute drive from our Beale Street hotel. Worth the 40-minute wait in line. So, sooooooo worth it. So glad I don't live in Memphis. I'd gain 100 pounds.

I love this place! We try to go about once a month. We love the casual atmosphere, and the food is just delicious. You can tell it is made by people who take pride in their cooking skill. Nothing is done half-way. Yesterday I had a Monte Cristo on cinnamon French toast and my husband had the Garden and the... More

Try it once, and you'll become a true believer. Brother Juniper's is the answer to your prayers for breakfast 'til noon. The line out the door on any Saturday is long as hell, but what happens in the kitchen is divine. Fresh ingredients; staff that enjoys being there; always something unique. Once you've experienced Brother Juniper's, the Second Coming is... More
