Brunch is more than a meal: it’s an event. Brunch is when the night owls and morning larks can come together and eat anything their hearts desire. Where—and when—else can you have a mimosa, a Bloody Mary, coffee, bacon, ham, steak, waffles, pancakes, sandwiches, pasta, salad, and cake on offer at once?

Nowhere. Only at brunch.

In Middle Tennessee, our brunch options are seemingly endless. Delicious aromas waft through the air, inviting you to pull up a chair and spend hours lingering over picturesque, mouth-watering meals. How can you begin to choose where to settle in for your weekend brunch?

We’ve got you covered with our list of our Top Ten Best Brunch Spots in Middle TN! Our team members have gone out for brunch hundreds of times between us, and we are delighted to share our favorite spots with you today.
