View as Map

HM.jpg"Where should we go for brunch?" What hungry, very likely hungover human being has not uttered that six-word phrase on a recent weekend?

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.

The classics are given a little extra attention as chef Larry Carlisle's kitchen turns out brioche French toast, their take on chicken and waffles and a deconstructed shrimp and grits.

Monell's Dining & Catering

Copy Link
Head to this Germantown stalwart on the weekends for one of the best traditional Southern breakfasts/brunches in town. Served family-style, sitting next to strangers isn't for everyone, but those that don't mind are rewarded with an onslaught of staples, including their famous skillet fried chicken.
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 some of the best around.
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.

Cafe Fundamental

Copy Link
Tucked away in an East Nashville neighborhood, chef Jamie Watson knows how to do all the French bistro classics right. But what you want to order here is the duck confit hash. Just do it.

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.
