Brother Juniper's College Inn
An Eastern Orthodox Priest runs this unassuming restaurant. It is often difficult to find a table, but worth the wait. Try the huge, fluffy homemade rolls, both wheat and white. The omelets can be ordered with a variety of toppings including spinach, mushrooms and feta cheese. On the side, try the sauteed potatoes, which can be topped with black beans, Swiss cheese, green onions or salsa. The decor is simple with red and white checkered tablecloths and few pictures. There are two dining rooms or you may eat at the bar. Classical music, makes this a pleasant place to start the day.
The best breakfast in town. Friendly atmosphere. Please allow time to eat breakfast and be patient. The place is small and wait can be long depending to the day. The San Diegan opened faced omelets rocks. The coffee is great. Near University of Memphis.
The only slight problems I've had are that 1) you sometimes have to wait to be seated, and 2) it sometimes takes a while for your food to arrive.
So, make sure and allow yourself enough time.
I heard so much about this restaurant that I was skeptical. Since I was going to Memphis for several days with my family, I had to try it. Just how different or delicious could you make a breakfast? I not only ate my words, but almost everything they had to offer on the menu. I wished I could have eaten more, but it was getting hard to zip my jeans. I especially liked the fact that everything arrived at the table piping hot. The family that runs Brother Juniper's serves high quality food with friendly service, and has built a beautiful community restaurant. I live in a city with great restaurants, but Brother Juniper's is something special. Don't Miss it. Yummy!!
The food here is really good, The portions are amble for the price you pay. It is very cloase to The University of Memphis Campus and prices are reasonable. I have eaten several items on the breakfast and lunch menus and have never been dissappointed.
My family was here to visit Memphis for a week. We had a chance to eat breakfast everyday here. We practically tried every dish on the menu and all was sooooo yummy. If I lived here, I would get fat from eating all the time. I can't wait to come back.
Quite simply one of the best places to have breakfast in the city. Located in a row of stores, next to a coffee shop and laundry mat, Br.Juniper's has been an early morning spot for years, with good reason: the best baked goods, biscuits & rolls teamed with eggs served as omelettes with a choice of ingredients, like spinach, feta chesse (or any way you like) and strong coffee. Try the potatoes or 'home fries', you won't regret it. The earlier you arrive, the better your rchance of getting a table. During the spring and summer months, they serve outside in their 'garden area'. Be sure to pick-up some jellies & jams while you're there.
