80+ Places To Eat Brunch In Memphis

80+ Places To Eat Brunch In Memphis

Memphis Brunch! We’re obsessed with it! Here is a big list of where to get brunch in Memphis, Germantown, and more in the Mid-South.

UPDATE 2/21: Shelby Co. Health Dept.’s Directive 18 requires tables at least six feet apart, and parties limited to six people in the same household. Restaurants can stay open until midnight and allow socially-distanced bar seating. Read the directive here. Please follow all health policies and wear a mask—it's required when not actively eating or drinking.

Everything on this list is subject to last-minute and frequent changes. Call ahead or make backup plans. Any establishment may decide to close or go to takeout-only at the last minute; that’s outside of the control of I Love Memphis.

All hours, menus, and availability subject to frequent change because of coronavirus/winter weather/water problems/whatever happens next, so call ahead!

I'd love to add more restaurants in the suburbs that have a dedicated brunch menu - open to suggestions!

* - no special brunch menu, but still perhaps a good place to eat on Sat. and Sun late breakfast/midday

**** - Curry Bowl doesn't have booze or BYOB, but they do have an Indian buffet starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday and that sounds so delightful that I'm just adding it to this list. S/o to the reader who sent this suggestion!

If I "left something off", I promise I didn't do it to offend you. Just leave a comment and I'll get it added. #TheMoreTheMerrier

Spots like Blue Plate Cafe, Brother Juniper's, Bryant's Breakfast, Pancake Shop are more in the breakfast category but folks still love to eat there for brunch. Just FYI!

Is your January post about good places for brunch your latest? Thanks!
April 6, 2018 3:13pm

Holly Whitfield
Hi Mark, Do you mean this post that you just commented on (80+ places to each brunch)? If so then yes, it's the latest list of brunch places. It was originally published in January but it has been updated multiple times since then. Every time I find out about a new place or a place that's closed, I update this. Hope this helps!

You might check last year's list of Mother's Day brunches and see if anyone has that space available. https://ilovememphisblog.com/2018/05/memphis-mothers-day-brunches-and-things-to-do/ Might try Amerigo Italian or Char. Majestic has private rooms for rent, too!

South of Beale has an East location now as well in East Memphis (SOB East). We have brunch there as well on Sundays!
January 10, 2021 12:22pm

Can this brunch list get restructured? I'm more interested in pictures and the vibe when I'm going out brunching. It would also be helpful to know about bottomless mimosas or outdoor Patios etc. But pictures of the space are the most important missing feature. 
February 28, 2021 3:21pm

Holly Whitfield

Hi Jessica! This is a quick, extensive list so it's not meant to have descriptions and photos for every one, as that would be impossibly long. That's why we linked to every restaurant's website, IG, or another blog post, so you could get a feel for the vibe. I know clicking on things stinks, but it's the best way we have right now. There are plans for other brunch guides that will have more photos in the future, but I'm one person doing the best I can. As for outdoor patios, they are literally listed for every brunch place, not sure how to make that more clear. Only two or three places in the whole city have bottomless mimosas, but I'll add that.
