Nashville has no shortage of food, drinks, and restaurants. I feel like every time I turn around a new restaurant has popped up. One of the most common questions I see in my Instagram DM’s is where to take your girlfriends for weekend brunch. All a girl wants on a Saturday or Sunday is french toast, avocado toast, country ham and some eggs! Luckily, this was a post I had in my working drafts before all the questions. So I have the 5 best brunch spots in Nashville for you!
The 5 Best Brunch Spots in Nashville
One of my go-to’s lately has been Milk & Honey. They have a filling brunch consisting of grains, toasts, sandwiches, bagels, baked goods, salads as well as favorites like Fried Chicken Biscuits and Short Rib Grilled Cheese.
Just to warn you, there’s normally a wait so you can always put your name in, grab coffee-to-go at the counter and wander around the Gulch until your table is ready. You can take a photo at the Angel Wings mural, shop at Kittenish, or get some new makeup at Winky Lux. The Gulch is also down the road from 12th Avenue South so you can head there after for shopping and mural hunting. Milk & Honey is open daily from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. for breakfast and lunch.
A trendy spot in East Nashville that is so Instagrammable. At Café Rose you’ll find fancier dishes like an Avocado Shake, Green Goddess Salad, or Chicken Pita. Don’t be mistaken though, everything is absolutely amazing. You won’t regret it, I promise. I recommend making reservations early on their website, they fill up quickly!
Mockingbird is one of my favorite city spots for dinner but they have a stellar brunch. They have southern comfort food items with an exotic twist as well as items like pastries, and fun cocktails. The interior and china is also so eclectic and fun and needs to be seen for yourself.
Anzie Blue used to just be a coffee shop but in their new space in Hillsboro Village, they have the most amazing brunch! You can get coffee, cocktails, delicious food, and have CBD put in almost anything. Their entire space is very on-brand and everything is blue! It’s the perfect spot to stop and work for a few hours or meet your girlfriend for brunch. It also has a cute view of the Hillsboro Neighborhood which has tons of good shopping and people-watching.
Want a fancy brunch with a phenomenal atmosphere? Go to Sinema. The decor is art deco and they often have old black and white movies playing on a projector. The upstairs is more bar/lounge while the downstairs is fine dining. They offer bottomless mimosas, bottomless bloody marys, and a brunch menu at flat rates. I’d definitely get a reservation here!
Some other great brunch restaurants and brunch options: Liberty Common, Biscuit Love, Henrietta Red, and Big Bad Breakfast.
