Get a Boost From Nashville's Best Breakfast/Brunch Restaurants

Is there ever a meal more meant for leisurely enjoyment than brunch? In Nashville we are blessed beyond belief with some of the tastiest, freshest and filling midday meals that can be had. At Marche Artisan Foods people have no problems waiting for one of the tables as long as they have their friends and a strong cup of their coffee. And why not? With a rotating menu of quiches, crepes and eggs over polenta, there is nothing that won't taste good with one of their blood orange mimosas. For flavors that are totally different, you can't go wrong at The Stone Fox thanks to their vegetarian breakfast Banh Mi, a buttered baguette topped with two sunny side up eggs, onions, pickled carrots, soy sauce and cilantro. And just about everyone can agree that a morning spent eating at Tavern is a morning well spent. Start with a Bellini Sparkle with cava, peach nectar and orange juice, then move right into a plate of White trash hash and the "nooner" - an omelet with bacon, fried oysters and spicy sour cream. As breakfast and brunch offerings are becoming more and more abundant, diners are lucking out with the pick of the brunch bunch.
