365 Things to Do in Memphis #187: Have Breakfast at Bryant’s
Get up early – assignment #187 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to have breakfast at Bryant’s:
You don’t go to Bryant’s for fancy breakfast – there’s not a single frittata or organic spinach omelette on the menu board – you go there for thick, filling Southern breakfasts served with deadly efficiency and mind-numbing speed.
And when you go, you’d better know what you want before you get in line – everyone else does, and the ladies behind the counter don’t play.
Whatever you order, you definitely want a biscuit. They’re legendary – thick and fluffy with a nice crusty top. They’re good plain, but they’re even better with sausage, eggs and cheese or ham. Their gravy is an absolute must as well.

Bryant’s opens for breakfast at 5 a.m. They don’t take cards, so go to an ATM on the way.
