Nashville's brunch game is strong, with so many choices and not nearly enough weekend hours to eat your way through town. Some brunch eateries are more well known than others, so we pulled together a list of restaurants you likely didn't know serve up the best meal of the day. You can thank us later for adding new options to your roster!
Beginning at 10a on Saturday & Sunday, feast on fare like 'damn good', shrimp & grits and biscuits n’ gravy. Note—brunch is only served on the first floor.
Two words—banana crepes. That dish alone is reason to check out Barcelona's brunch. If you are seeking something heartier, the pork belly benedict is a great option for your protein fix. Keep in mind that brunch doesn't start until 11:30a on both Saturday & Sunday
Though the brunch menu is on the small side, you can fuel up with Sunday Chicken Sliders and Maple & Cinnamon Sweet Tots from 10a–3p on Saturday & Sunday.
Not surprisingly, Chauhan's brunch menu has an Indian flair to it, with Tandoori Skirt Steak & Eggs, Naan French Toast and Vindoaloo Chiliquillies.
With a menu section titled 'Homemade Big-Ass Biscuits', it's clear that you should order a biscuit-centric dish. Choose from options like Alabama BBQ Biscuits or Fried Chicken Biscuits. Don't forget a Bloody Mary to wash it down!
Coco's serves up an Italian brunch at its best beginning at 9a on Saturday & Sunday. Try everything from the Linguini Fritatta and Mateo’s Breakfast Lasagna to a sweeter selection like Crespelle con Nutella.
From protein-heavy bites like the Nashville Nasty and Breakfast Burrito to Baked French Toast, the smaller brunch menu still packs a punch.
Lowcountry Shrimp & Grits, Corned Beef Hash and a la carte offerings like eggs and bacon make Fat Bottom an unexpectedly great spot for brunch. The adult breakfast beverages with clever names like Smoke on the Water and Corpse Reviver only add to the appeal.
Hattie B's doesn't stray from its roots with its Sunday brunch menu, with chicken & waffles (at varying degrees of heat) taking center stage. They also offer bacon cheese grits as a side.
Henrietta Red's brunch offerings are nothing short of extensive, with everything from sweets like a cinnamon roll and monkey bread to heartier eats like a breakfast sandwich and Huevos Rancheros to cure that hangover.
Le Sel serves up brunch three days a week, making it one of the only spots in the city where you can feast on Peach Jam Stuffed Beignets and Croque Madame on a Friday.
Why settle for typical adult brunch beverages when you can sip on Man-Mosas and Bloody Nolas? You can also chow down on five different breakfast burritos and sweets like cinnamon sugar donut holes.
If you have an incredibly voracious appetite (or plan to share), be sure to tackle the Brunch For Two, which is comprised of a 55oz Bloody Mary topped with two whole fried Cornish game hens, two whole scotch eggs, eight fried okra and 1/2 avocado. Otherwise, opt for items like the Smoked Chicken Frittata.
Brunch is offered on Sunday from 11a–3p and the menu changes daily, which means you may find anything from the Coffee Tenderloin Breakfast to their to-die for Shrimp & Grits. Added bonus—oysters are served at brunch, too!
Tánsuo's Sunday brunch just launched earlier this summer and features eats like Char Sui Roast Pork Bao, Sticky Rice Jung and bottomless boozy cocktails like The Rising Phoenix.
Challenge your friends to Giant Jenga on the patio or step inside for a Pac-Man battle as you stuff your face with Buddy's Doughnuts, Breakfast Cheese Steak or Buttermilk Pancakes.
