    The environment is very casual and cozy. Gets busy quickly since it opens at 6:30 a.m. Parking's available along the front or across the street in the open lot. Good food, good coffee(s), good prices.

    Love that they have a Vegan option. Had their Veggie Sausage w/ Scrambled Tofu and it was really good. Nice staff and cool atmosphere. Sucks that they didn't offer dairy-free coffee creamer, though.

    Best breakfast/brunch in Memphis! Be prepared to wait a ridiculous amount of time unless you get there around 8/9am. Make sure to try something new, it is worth it.

    The breakfast place if you live on, near, or far from campus. They have a long wait on the weekends, but they have a great drink bar in the waiting area. Get the hot chocolate!

    Delicious breakfast! Nice, strong coffee that they'll keep refilling for you. Try the spanikopita omelet. So amazing. :-) Friendly staff. One of my fav places in Memphis!

    Best Breakfast in Memphis! On weekends, get there before 9:30 or after 11:30 for quick seating. Open-face omelets and homefries are out of this world! Coffee is killer!

    Don't go for the Rachel Ray hype, go for the food! Their home fries are superb and go well with any dish! Best breakfast in Memphis. Now if only they offered Eggs Benedict...

    This place has the best breakfast and they are really fast. There is usually always a wait but it's never too bad so I highly recommend trying it.

    Great food. Some of the waits can be a bit rough but it's a great place to have a meal. Not just college students either.

    Open faced omelets and biscuits are a staple here. I consider it a little piece of home to bring visitors to from out of town after a long night out.

    Lives up to its reputation. I had 2 country ham biscuits, 2 scrambled eggs and grits. It was excellent! Nice country atmosphere too.

    Try the open omelet! Walking distance from campus and really good breakfast food when you're tired of BK and Dunkin Donuts

    Best omelettes I've found. It's a little pricy for my college student budget, but the food is definitely worth the price. Worth treating yourself to a yummy breakfast.

    It's been 6 years since I've been here! A good "welcome home" gift. The place has changed a LOT...I like the use of space and the updated technology.

    Food is really good. On the weekends they get very busy and the waiting time is around 45 minutes. Tried calling a couple of times with no luck.

    If here for breakfast/brunch: "Monte Cristo on French Toast" is a MUST. Great balance of sweet & savory; served w/pure maple syrup, of course.

    The Greek omelet and the home fries/hash browns are really good. Plus, their biscuits are very fresh and homemade as well.

    Brother Juniper's is a perennial favorite for Best Breakfast in Memphis. You'll probably have to wait for a table, but the biscuits and omelets are worth it. Read more

    The Denver Omelet is amazing: Ham, cheddar cheese, green peppers, and chives. Biscuits and coffee are among the best.

    Don't sit at the counter, very crowded and uncomfortable stools! Good food! Love the cheese grits!

    They don't accept reservations, but for small parties, they do allow call-ahead. This allows you to potentially cut your wait time considerably if you come on the weekend.

    These were the best breakfast potatoes I've ever had. Try them with the special blend hot sauce.

    As we said on the 60's. It has the sickening sweet smell of college intellectualism. Definitely the Obama crowd here. Great food. Lol
