Ahh brunch. It might not be the most important meal of the day, but it is a sport all its own in Nashville. Here are 10 solid spots to sip mimosas and bloody marys and fill up on fluffy biscuits, pillowy pancakes and eggs done any way your heart desires.

Buttermilk Ranch

This boutique bakery with pristine pastries from Alyssa Gangeri and a stellar savory brunch lineup is a true sugar-sprinkled oasis in 12 South. Get there early to secure a table or a pastry, as there’s typically a wait on weekends. 2407 12th Ave. S,


East Nashville’s standout new neighborhood wood-fired Asian spot provides a refreshing alternative to basic Nashville brunch options. All of the options are good ones here, from Japenese chicken and waffles to a Noko “all-star breakfast” with Filipino sausage, Caesar salad with kimchi dressing, steak and eggs, Noko moco fries, or a wood-fired avocado toast with wasabi, tomato, avocado, and egg. 701 Porter Road,

Drusie & Darr

The historic Hermitage Hotel is a vibe all its own, but the recent refresh of the hotel’s restaurant and the addition of celebrated chef Jean-George to the lineup make it a brunch destination that is sure to impress. Try signature savory items like crispy sushi or an asparagus and bacon pizza or indulge in sweeter daytime treats like buttermilk pancakes, French toast, freshly baked croissants or pain au chocolat. 231 6th Ave. N,

Roze Pony

With a breakfast and brunch menu available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, Roze Pony is a stunning spot in Belle Meade to feast on beet-cured salmon, smoked trout toast and fluffy souffle pancakes. 5133 Harding Pike,

Marsh House

Marsh House is a lovely seafood-centric brunch option, a chic dining space on the ground floor of the Gulch’s Thompson boutique hotel. With a brunch served daily until 2 p.m., it’s easy to sip mimosas and feast on fried oyster Benedict or shrimp and grits while people-watching on the patio. 401 11th Ave. S,


The charming cottage in East Nashville sets the scene for a cozy brunch with friends. Snag a seat inside or out then enjoy plates of buckwheat pancakes, fried mortadella sandwiches, caraway-rubbed bacon and pork schnitzel that all look just as fantastic as they taste. 1304 McGavock Pike,


This aesthetically pleasing daily brunch option in the Gulch has a large mirrored mockingbird (the state bird of Tennessee) watching over flocks of daily brunch diners. Find scallion cream cheese-stuffed bagel bombs on the menu alongside brioche cinnamon rolls and the spicy “flock yes” brunch biscuit dreams are made of, oozing with chorizo gravy and salsa verde. 121 12th Ave. N,


Old school theatre vibes, bottomless drinks and endless food for brunch? Plus a social media post-worthy bathroom for selfies to boot? Sinema secures a spot as a top brunch destination easily, touting multiple perks. The bottomless brunch is a family-style situation, with plates of fruit, biscuits, grits, hashbrown casserole and fried chicken with hot honey all hitting the table until you say stop. 2600 8th Ave. S, Ste. 102,


Church and brunch collide at this former West Nashville fellowship hall cranking out stellar buttermilk pancakes, brunch burgers and stone ground grits with pork belly. From the food to the cocktails and zero-proof beverages from Hayley Teague, it’s easy to become a quick believer in brunch when seated in Hathorne’s pews. 4708 Charlotte Ave.,

Henrietta Red

Germantown’s light, bright brunch darling Henrietta Red has all the ingredients for a spectacular mid-day meal. Monkey bread here meets a dulce de leche glaze, while a duo of buttermilk biscuits with cranberry orange marmalade also pleases the crowd. Then, load up on coffee milk punch, saucy oysters, Poppy’s caviar and Turkish eggs with lamb sausage and Aleppo pepper for a full brunch spread. 1200 4th Ave. N,
