Posted: Dec 31, 2005 6:36 pm
Brother Juniper?
Barksdale's (i had a triple patty melt w/egg and it ruled the wasteland).
CK's (steak and eggs jr rules the fucking world-pile EVERYTHING on the toast)

This whole forum makes me hungry!!!

Ryan's future cafe

I hope to eat there sometime. Until then, Blue Plate cafe is darn good.

Bryant's on summer. Really really cheap. Really really good.

Bryants is by far the best redneck breakfast.All of the above mentioned ones I have been to were almost inedible.

Ryan's future cafe

What are you waiting for! I'm hungry now!
Posted: Jan 1, 2006 3:25 am
God only knows--Ryan just said, 'I got more to learn--but I am learnin' the ropes everyday.'

Hang in there--we will be making you all very happy soon enough.

Awesome, Fiery. I'll be having a double order of hashbrowns with ham and mushrooms and two, runny fried eggs tomorrow when y'all get set up. My wife is looking for something new to put the bedroom TV on. We'll be in around 10:00.

is there anywhere to get a good bagel and lox in memphis (without having to guy buy everything at the grocery)?
Posted: Jan 1, 2006 10:49 pm
Bryants!! I love the sun shaped fried bologna!! yum.
Posted: Jan 1, 2006 11:05 pm
The Horeshoe Casino has a grrrrreat breakfast buffet!
Posted: Jan 1, 2006 11:16 pm | Edited by: alix
yes! all you can eat bacon and fried pork chops!!
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 12:17 am
I think you can get bagels and lox at that San Francisco type eatery in the Pinch. Yeah...Cafe Franscisco. I think they're still open?
I've been there for late breakfast on Sunday mornings. Not typical eggs and stuff...but lotsa meat!
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 1:13 am
yeah cafe francisco is still open. i haven't been in a while though. good stuff.

i like brother juniper's quite a bit. i'm hardly ever up at normal breakfast hours though so i don't get to venture there a lot.

my favorite breakfast? my own. mmmmmm.

did someone already say Pancake Shop? it's over on summer ave. near mendenhall. their 'everyday special' will do the trick. make sure to add gravy to the biscuits. it's one of those old memphis places that used to have a "No Ni****s, Jews, or Dogs" sign.
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 4:45 am
ooooh the pancake shop!!!!!!! i haven't eaten there in a while. must go again soon!
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 4:48 am
CK's is my favorite. I've never been to Ellen's early enough to have their breakfast, but I bet it's the best.
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 5:02 am
Cozy Corner.
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 6:00 am
Of course Mikey picks the worst place and says it's the best.

And hashed browns with the mushmoons.

The fried bologna, egg, & cheese sandwich at Bryant's, specifically, is the best breakfast is Memphis.
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 11:42 am
that place where it has pics of Jack White by the cash register,, neat place.. i guess its famous for some movie..right down town.
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 4:36 pm
Is there a legit Jewish deli anywhere in Memphis anymore? I ask cos our future breakfast cafe needs a good bagel maker; we can't be doin' it ALL.

Also, we will be having our benedicts on crumpets.

Any tortellerias in town or do the good Mexican restaurants have to have them shipped in?

Thanks in advance for the menu help.
Posted: Jan 2, 2006 4:46 pm
Tops. Tops. Tops.

brother junipers is so fucking expensive. they basically make you promise your first born and a healthy kidney for an egg and a cup of coffee. and if that's not enough, they're all creepy menenites who churn their own butter and wear burlap underwear. "best breakfast" my ass.
Posted: Jan 7, 2006 4:54 pm
there are dozens of tortilla-making joints in town
ask Eric about the time we went to one and he bought a package of tortillas and i thought they were, like, made up with chicken or beef or whatever
I couldn't understand why they were so cheap or why we didn't get any silverware.
to save face, I ate one plain, which the girl working the cash register thought was hilarious.
I am a stupid gringo!

Not to mention...THEY SUCK! They burn all their food; it is just complete and utter slop.
Posted: Jan 7, 2006 11:36 pm
i would suggest that if you like your life you should NEVER EAT ANYTHING FROM THE PANCAKE SHOP, but then again this is coming from the same guy that would put brother junipers up against any breakfast joint in the tri-state area. its not a greasy spoon, but i'd gladly pay an extra $2 and read scriptures off the wall for the biscuits alone, not to mention the eggs florentine plate. with cheese grits...priceless!
Posted: Jan 8, 2006 12:21 am
I suppose it is just sad to me that Brother Juniper's holds that high of a rank with anyone in Memphis. I was absolutely embarrassed for that place...until I had to pay and then I was just pissed.
Posted: Jan 8, 2006 6:43 am
cozy corner.

pancake shop on summer
Posted: Jan 28, 2006 6:44 pm
i can't remember if its still there or not but there was a place by goldsmiths (macys?) and oak court and all that called dutch pancake house that my aunt used to take us to when i was a kid...that shit was good
Posted: Jan 28, 2006 6:58 pm
my girl's kitchen
Posted: Jan 29, 2006 9:19 pm
dutch pancake house that my aunt used to take us to when i was a kid

it is no longer there. they razed the building, built a fuckin johnny rockets, which promptly went out of bizness and it is now a ck's.

i still dream about the blueberry blintzes
Posted: Jan 30, 2006 1:31 pm
I still rate the Pancake Shop on Summer, also ...

Brother Juniper's is good, apart from the biscuits, which are like dough pillows, and rite orrible ...
Posted: Jan 30, 2006 5:02 pm
Yeah I like Bro Junipers in general (it ain't that expensive for chrissake - what are you people ordering?) - but those biscuits taste like cardboard. Crowd's usually a pain too but I've always been happy with the breakfast.

Bryant's is my favorite though. Now that's a BISCUIT!

I do miss Mike's downtown - food wasn't so good - but it was a great greasy bacon runny egg joint. perfect for hangover. The old waitress always looked like she was in worse shape than you were. That was nice.
Posted: Jan 30, 2006 6:20 pm
Zac, next time at Juniper's, get the toast instead of the biscuit. The toast is decent. Problem solved.
Posted: Jan 30, 2006 6:34 pm
yeah the strauhn toast at bj's is very good. I think there are a few really good things on that menu, but i agree that some things are really really not good as well. have discovered what i like, and it suits me just fine. the new grilled cheese on the strauhn is good for a queasy stomach. everything else is too heavy after a night of serious drinking. My new favorite breakfast. . .eggs with fish sauce over rice at pho saigon. i've got a problem, i can't seem to stop.

p.s. bosco's also has bagel and lox and it's pretty good. and not as expensive as the rest of brunch there. only brunch though i think.

when I was a gf2 I went to Brown's 2x for the 3 scrambles eggs, grits and sausage with toast, brought my own coffee.
Posted: Apr 10, 2006 6:09 pm
K's country kitchen on summer. just down from bryants. its cheaper and almost as good as bryants. used to be a taco bell.
Posted: Apr 11, 2006 6:34 am
The two ladies that own buns on the run (one waits tables and the other cooks) are real nice folks. Everything is fresh and if you order the egg combo without meat you can get out of there for $5 (including coffee)

Not far from the house at all! Almost katy-corner, if it's the spot I'm thinking.

buns on the run

Posted: Apr 11, 2006 8:57 am
danvers has a pretty decent cheap breakfast as well and the sevice is friendly.
