Updated: Where to Eat Brunch in Nashville

View as Map

"Where should we go for brunch?" What hungry, very likely hungover human being has not uttered that six-word phrase on a recent weekend? And who really wants to have to think at a time like that? Well help is here, as we now present you with an updated guide to the best places to eat brunch. Now, before you raise your pitchforks in anger, a few notes. This is a guide to those places that serve BRUNCH, meaning that most hallowed of weekend meals. There are most certainly some spots around town that serve a great breakfast every day of the week, but that's for another time, another map. It's been a while since the last update, so for this edition we say farewell to Silo, Monell's and Cafe Fundamental and welcome Josephine, Pinewood Social and Lucky Bamboo.

Josephine

Copy Link
After opening with dinner service in early December, Josephine jumped into the brunch game early last month. Head on in Saturday or Sunday for chef Andy Little's pistachio and dried cherry sticky buns, or one of a number of hearty sandwiches (think braised pork and grilled beef heart) and larger plates.

Pinewood Social

Copy Link
The latest venture from Strategic Hospitality keeps 'em packed in day and night, with brunch service as a standout. Order the 'Egg in a Jar' or the fried chicken and biscuits with gravy. And if coffee is on the agenda, grab the Fernet-fueled 'Easy Like Sunday Morning.'

Lucky Bamboo

Copy Link
Three words: dim sum cart. Served only on the weekends, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Brunch at this outpost of chef Sean Brock's Charleston classic strays away from the usual fare and into more savory territory. The menu changes every weekend, but constants are the shrimp and grits (not your mama's) and the famous double patty HUSK cheeseburger.

Hattie B's Hot Chicken

Copy Link
Yes, other places around town serve chicken and waffles, but here, every Sunday, they serve Nashville HOT chicken and waffles, and it's the best in town.
Variations on breakfast such as the red velvet waffle with cream cheese and pretzel pancakes with dulce de leche make this one stand out from the crowd. The Singapore stir fry is also a highlight. And while you're there, indulge in some of the best sangria in the city.

Marché Artisan Food

Copy Link
Wait times of close to an hour on weekends are not uncommon at chef Margot McCormack's East Nashville hot spot, but don't let that deter you. Musts are the breads and pastries, along with the crepe du jour.

Mad Donna's

Copy Link
This quirky eatery is always busy on the weekends, and with good reason. Belly up to the bar and build your own Bloody Mary, then order the Captain's French Toast: local Provence Tuscan bread coated with Cap'n Crunch cereal.

blvd Nashville

Copy Link
Arnold Myint's French bistro on Belmont gets it right, with Sunday brunch offerings such as the croque madame and more playful dishes like Greens, Eggs & Lamb (get it?). Plus what's not to like about half-price bottles of wine all day long?

The Stone Fox

Copy Link
Located in the gentrifying Urbandale Nations community, this neighborhood gathering spot offers a little bit of everything, including a breakfast banh mi, chicken and waffles, huevos con chorizo and some of the best biscuits (seriously) in town.
