Posted by Holly Whitfield | April 22nd 2020 2999 0

Here’s a running list of places offering breakfast in Memphis and the Mid-South during the coronavirus pandemic. They’re offering breakfast for takeout, curbside pickup, and delivery.

Got somewhere to add? Leave me a note in the comments.

Some tips for takeout and delivery:

  • Tip 25 to 30 percent. Always, always tip. Yes, you tip on takeout. Yes, you tip on delivery.
  • You might have to call a couple of times or wait longer. Restaurants are working with a limited staff.
  • Wear a mask or a scarf when going to pick up orders.
  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, with lots of soap, after handling takeout containers.
  • When I say “the apps” I mean to check BiteSquad, UberEats, DoorDash, GrubHub, Postmates, etc.

This list is sorted by neighborhood. Right now we have Downtown, South Memphis + Whitehaven, Midtown, East Memphis, and Suburbs. We are delighted to add additional neighborhoods and more restaurants, just leave a comment.

Hours are subject to frequent changes. Please check social media or call for the latest info.
