Going out to eat isn't always about cravings. Often enough, mealtimes dictate our choices, limiting restaurant possibilities. When circumstances narrow the options, let 10Best help. Direct from our taste buds are our recommendations for the best Breakfast/Brunch restaurants in Memphis. Try Paulette's for its to-die for popovers, served with soft butter (and that's just the starter for every breakfast order), or the Trolley Stop for a locally-sourced platter of eggs and bacon. It's hard to beat Brother Juniper's, the University of Memphis-area eatery that's a morning stop for students and the city's power brokers alike - try one of their huge omelets if you're super-hungry.
For all-out decadence, the historic Peabody Hotel offers a lovely Sunday brunch that includes a 22-foot long dessert table and a meat-packed carving station, and Owen Brennan's is the destination for a New Orleans / Cajun / seafood brunch that will jazz up any weekend.
Few of the restaurants listed take reservations for brunch, with the exception of Paulette's, Peabody's Capriccio Grill and Owen Brennan's. Most are child-friendly, and most offer coffee and other beverages while you wait for your table. If you're worried about getting a table on Sunday mornings, simply go early; Memphis is a church-going town, but most folks don't leave church until late morning.
