A grand old Omelette, a biscuit and cheese grits, what better way to start the day? We arrived late so there was no wait for us and this awesome food provided a great foundation for a torirsty day out in the city... Lovely service on top. Really I can't fault it....

I Google'd "Best Breakfast in Memphis" & one of the choices was Brother Junipers. Hands down the best breakfast ever!! I had the Greek Omelet both visits & it was delicious! The biscuits melt in your mouth & the cinnamon rolls tasted like my Granny's!! I highly recommend, well worth the wait!

My husband remarked that this was great food & service in an experienced building as he ate at the restaurant in a prior life ( when it was Frenches College Inn & he was in college in the late 1960's & back again in the 1980's). We got omelets that were STUFFED full of goodies! The grits were melt in... More

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
