There are many things you have to keep in mind while planning your vacation. This includes travel fares, hotel stays, transportation and lets not forget the most important part…BRUNCH!

Planning your meals shouldn’t be stressful so we took the liberty of putting together the best brunches you can have during your visit! This list has everything you need from inexpensive plates to big party accommodations. Let us take the stress away and make sure you put some good food in your belly!

Nashville Biscuit House

If you’re looking for an inexpensive breakfast, more than reasonable portions and a family-fun atmosphere, head over to the Nashville Biscuit House in East Nashville. When you walk in the front door, you’re greeted with smiles and the comfortable sense of home, or your grandma’s kitchen. The menu is straight forward and has many options to fill you up. The wait staff will keep your coffee hot and full and you’ll feel like family by the time you leave. With plates like the ‘’Lumberjack’’ and the ‘’Ultimate Platter’’, you wont need another meal for the rest of the day! You can also build your own omelette, which are some of the best in town. Our personal favorite is the “Nashvillian”, which allows you to customize your breakfast to your liking; eggs, choice of meat, choice of side and choice of bread, all starting at $6.50! (Hint: you can ask for tater tots as a side substitution!) You can’t beat their prices! They also have a drive thru window (cash only) for quicker service. They are known to be quite busy, especially on the weekend, and are first come, first served. So get in and get on the wait list, because we guarantee it will be worth the wait!

THE MOCKINGBIRD

This new and modern restaurant, opened in 2017, has been such a hit that we had to add to our guide. The cuisine is a mixture of Mexican, Italian, American, French, Korean and Japanese, just to name a few. The owners wanted to provide an experience themed around multicultural global fare, showing diversity through their dishes. They also have a sense of humor. All of the dishes have “punny” names and they boast that no two dishes are alike. Some of the dishes you’ll find on their creative menu include “Kiss My Grits”, with roasted mushroom and spin, and “El Eggo”, which is a Belgian style waffle (churros style) with whipped honey mascarpone. But it doesn’t stop there. They’ve also put a lot of energy into their cocktail menu that pairs extremely well with the food menu. This beautiful, modern restaurant will have you writing home. It’s that good!
