We came here twice in one weekend! It was that good! The coffee was amazing! My wife said it was too strong. I had the gyro omelet & wife had French toast. We did not go away hungry.

I had been told to check out this place by a friend in Memphis. We visit Memphis every summer and are always looking to try something new. We had a short wait, as this establishment is very popular. The food was really good, we all had something different. Rachel Ray is even on the menu with the San Diegan open... More

We went to Brother Juniper's just after they opened today and were delighted with the experience. We only very rarely eat breakfast in Memphis, so I can't really comment too much on whether they live up to the "Best Breakfast in Memphis" title, but I can certainly see how they could be a contender. My wife and I both had... More

We visited Memphis for a long weekend and went for breakfast at Brother Juniper's because of the rave reviews on Trip Adviser. The accolades were well deserved. The omelets were fantastic and the potato dishes were the best we have ever had. All of the staff were friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. But the most amazing part was the owner. There... More

The food is good, however the people working here have very bad attitudes. And it's all the time. Makes me not want to spend my $$ there.

I have lived here forever and this is my first time to eat here. I have never had a better breakfast anywhere! The Greek omelet was solo good and the potatoes were perfect. Do NOT miss this place.

So maybe this isn’t a fair title since I haven’t actually tried every breakfast spot in Memphis, but so far Brother Juniper’s is our absolute favorite! My husband got the “Garden Omelet” which is stuffed with gyro meat, feta, mozzarella, spinach, tomatoes, and green onions. It came with a biscuit on the side and cheesy grits. My husband really enjoyed... More

Went for a late breakfast on a weekday. Seated without a wait. Ordered unsweet tea and was served sweet. My omelet was brought to me with grits instead of the potatoes I ordered. Had to wait to get the servers attention to point it out. Pretty sure it was the wrong plate overall. Plate was replaced with correct omelet and... More

My daughter and I went to Father Junipers this past Friday. We had a small wait, but it was not a problem. We were at table 2. The biggest problem was the service. I believe the server forgot us. It took 10 minutes to get drinks and another 10 minutes to order. The saving grace was that the food was... More

It's a must do. A Memphis breakfast tradition. It's a popular place so be prepared to wait. Send someone ahead of your group or family to put your name on the list! It close to the U of M and popular with students so it's packed packed packed on the weekends! It's the best breakfast in my opinion. Great coffee... More
