Rise and Shine with Nashville's Top 10 Breakfast Spots

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not sure if that is true or not, but with the options around town it can certainly be one of the most delicious. Biscuits, a Nashville AM staple, can be found many ways, but hardly any as good as you can find at The Loveless Cafe. A true Tennessee tradition, the only thing that competes with unforgettable biscuits is the quaint country charm. If sweet is more your speed early in the morning, head over to another iconic restaurant, Hillsboro Village's Pancake Pantry. You can take your stack and drizzle it with all kinds of delicious options, including old-fashioned maple syrup, cinnamon-cream, or even raspberry cream. And if you don't mind a little hustle and bustle with your morning meal, Fido is the spot to be, especially if you are craving their signature Village Scramble with eggs, spinach, tomatoes, portobellos, roasted onions, feta, salsa, sour cream, hash browns and tortillas. The best thing about finding breakfast in Nashville may be the fact you can get it at any time. Morning, noon or night, the perfect omelet and cup of coffee is closer than you think.
