Raise your hand if BRUNCH is your favorite meal of the week! There’s nothing better than eggs, bacon, sausage, and potatoes all combined in different ways to make a delicious start to your day. The Nashville restaurant scene is evolving quickly, so we wanted to compile a list of our favorite spots. Click on each restaurant’s name to view their websites & menu.

1)The Buttermilk Ranch

This is a Wil Shults favorite right here, y’all. Think: fresh made pastries, croissant sandwiches, and so much more. Located in 12th South, it can get busy- but you can put your name on a wait list on your way via their website! Breakfast/brunch are available daily.

2) Lou

One of our close friends described this as the best brunch she’d ever had. It’s a bit more upscale with fresh made ricotta & berry tartines, buckwheat pancakes, & Japanese pumpkin and potato hash as some of their standout dishes. It’s located in East Nashville & reservations are recommended! *Weekend brunch only.*

3) Crieve Hall Bagel Co.

Get ready for the best bagel of your life. These sourdough bagels are baked fresh daily & will leave you wanting more. It was started by a couple in their home during quarantine & has grown way beyond what they could have imagined! This gem of a spot is open DAILY (with the exception of Tuesday!)

4) Snooze

Ok, this restaurant is a chain- but it is GOOOOOOD, so we are adding to the list. It just joined the lineup of amazing restaurants in Hunter’s Station, in East Nashville. They are known for their pancakes, but don’t sleep on their other options. Their sweet potato bacon smash up is life changing. Open for breakfast/brunch daily!

5) Stay Golden

Not sure if we like their coffee or biscuit sandwiches better… good thing we don’t have to choose! And for any gluten free friends, they have an amazing GF biscuit! Located in the Berry Hill design district, this restaurant serves up breakfast daily. It also has a designated area in the back for working if you need to be productive as well.

5) Roze Pony

Love seeing some new development in the Belle Meade area! The owners of beloved East Nashville Cafe Roze opened Roze Pony as a sister restaurant and it is incredible. From overnight oats to souffle pancakes, you won’t be disappointed with their offerings. Their menu is a bit smaller than some other restaurants on our guide, but each item is a knock out and we promise you won’t be disappointed.
