We we're a little Leary as we walked in to Brother Junipers but we also realize that the best food places are always the ones that surprise you. This was the best breakfast I have EVER had. Amongst the 3 of us we tried the San Diegan, the Denver omelette and the granola with yogurt and blueberries. We were all... More

We enjoy going to Brother Juniper's for breakfast on Sunday mornings. There is a nice mix of families and couples, the food is great and it is local. My wife and I enjoy the omelettes (there is a wide variety of combinations) and the large fluffy biscuits. It can be a little loud at times but frankly that is what... More

It's always great to get down to Brother Juniper's for Breakfast in Memphis. If you've not tried it... you need to make you way over to Walker Avenue (Close to the University of Memphis) and try this out. Everything I've ever ordered there has been great... but I'm partial to those incredible biscuits they make. Yummy!

Been going here for 30 years. Best breakfast in the city. Go early on the weekend because there's usually a line.

Really enjoyed our breakfast with family at Brother Juniper's. We were visiting Memphis and looking for a place to have breakfast on a Sunday day morning. Brother Junipers was exactly what we were looking for.

What can I say?? There isn't anything I don't love about this place. The food the coffee the waitresses and the fact they all were skirts (which btw is freaking adorable) I always get the garden and the lamb or the num 2 and a raspberry mocha. Never ever do they disappoint

We had omelets, waffles, grits, sausage, biscuits and home fries. The biscuits were solid. The omelets had way too much cheese and green onions. I was expecting spectacular grits in Memphis and these were very bland. Sausage was way overdone. Waffle was pretty good. Food was served super fast. I might go back here and try something else but it... More

This restaurant has been a staple for me since college days. It's practically on the u of Mem campus. I've tried almost everything on the menu. I always leave there feeling nourishes. The strawn bread is homemade and available by the loaf to take with you. If there's any left. Yummy.
