How Do You Brunch?

It’s 11:00 AM on Saturday morning and we open our eyes and lift our arms up for a big stretch. We look around for a cup of water, take a sip, and think to ourselves, “what’s for brunch?” Brunch is easily the most favorite (and important) meal of the weekend. We look forward to it all week and sometimes plan it out days in advance. Whether we’re craving waffles, pancakes, eggs benedict, or even a burrito, Nashville knows how to satisfy our brunch cravings. Here’s our top 5 favorite brunch items!

 Brunch is all about friends, laughter, and great food and drinks!

1. Tavern's “White Trash Hash”: Though it’s not a dish in itself, but rather a side to select brunch items, we could eat an entire plateful of this. A delicate mix of potatoes with melted cheese, Tavern’s white trash hash is addicting, satisfying, and always elicits the response “this is amazing!!”

 We can't go to  Tavern  brunch without getting an extra side order of the White Trash Hash!

2. The Flipside's "The Big Fix" Bloody Mary: A bloody mary for brunch is always a good idea. But The Flipside’s “The Big Fix” bloody mary is an incredible idea! Poured in a 22 ounce frosted mug, this drink has traditional bloody mary ingredients with an exciting addition of bacon, pickle, tater tots, chicken, and a crab claw sticking out from the glass. The bloody mary is both delicious and thrilling, and will sure to turn a few heads.

3. Saint Añejo's Dark Chocolate Waffles: Who says we can’t eat chocolate for breakfast? Saint Añejo’s chocolate waffles are irresistibly delicious. These waffles come out warm, topped with a perfectly sweet cinnamon whipped cream and finished with a strawberry crema drizzle.

 Chocolate, berries, and whipped cream goodness.

4. Frothy Monkey's Julie Bagel: Nothing says a relaxing Saturday morning quite like brunch at Frothy Monkey. Curl up with a warm latte and one of their amazing bagel sandwiches with fresh ingredients. Our personal favorite is the Julie on an everything bagel. The feta and basil compliment the fluffy farm eggs. Don’t forget to add bacon for a next-level flavor!

5. Marché's Croissant French Toast: Whenever we find ourselves on the East side, we never forget to stop by Marché, a café reminiscent of a European style bistro. Though their fresh cuisine changes seasonally, we always find ourselves ordering their croissant French toast topped with powdered sugar and maple syrup. Sitting in the rustic yet elegant café, taking the first bite of our French toast, we can’t help but smile.
