Good Breakfast

This place had the best Bologna of anywhere we ate. The grits were also good as were the biscuits. The place is busy though and gets crowded. Worth a visit.

By far one of the worst breakfast meals we have ever had. Eggs were over cooked, meat was extremely overcooked, grits were watery and the gravy tasted more like flour than gravy. The only good thing was the biscuits. Won't be going back.

We "accidently" happened upon Bryant's for breakfast and I am sooooo glad that we did! It was yummy, and the little restaurant has a down-home feel to it and it was perfect! Be mindful that it is PACKED but the service and the line went by so fast you didn't even realize the wait. The line was wrapped around the... More

I arrived here with a friend on Saturday morning at 8am. I feared the line would be outside the door, but it was just winding around inside. I waited in line about 10 mins, and the food arrived about another 10 minutes after ordering. There was a steady line the entire time we were there. My friend ordered the breakfast... More

Perfect start to the day. Nice home-cooked style meals at affordable prices. Interesting decor and friendly staff. Heard the staff greeting the local customers by name. It opens early and fills up quickly.

This is my 3rd or 4th time here. Always a line. Always noisy and pushy and always delish. I ordered my daughter a country ham biscuit and I tried a pork tenderloin and egg sandwich. I think the biscuit was $3-$4 and the sandwich $5.39. OMG. The biscuit had 3 biscuit sized, 1/4" pieces of ham. The sandwich had 2... More

I LOVE biscuit breakfast sandwiches and had my first grilled bologna and egg biscuit sandwich. A real treat. The pancakes are also light and fluffy. Grits and gravy. Don't miss the potato cakes. All terrific. Order at the counter, then find a seat and they will bring your breakfast.

Okay. I realize it is "Bryant's " and it is a Memphis institution. I have stopped for a biscuit to go occasionally in the morning and it is good. I recently had breakfast with my 17 year old and it was very crowded and the wait was crazy considering the quality of the food at the end. The grits, gravy... More
