Grabbing Breakfast in Nashville? Check Out These Top SpotsBreakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that's certainly the motto in Nashville. Whether it's because the Music City lends itself to late nights and lingering mornings, or because Southerners simply appreciate a deliciously nutritious breakfast, it seems that Nashville has a special spot in its heart for this morning meal.

These are some of the top spots to enjoy breakfast in Nashville:

Biscuit Love

While it now boasts two Nashville locations and a thriving base of hungry fans, Biscuit Love was originally a humble food truck that traveled around the city in search of people looking for a playful version of brunch. Now, the restaurant serves up breakfast meals—both with and without a biscuit—from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day. Popular items include the Lily biscuit, named after the original food truck, and the bananas foster oatmeal. This family-friendly restaurant also has a special menu for the youngest diners as well.

The Nashville Biscuit House

Anyone who is looking for a famed home cooked breakfast in Nashville should look no further than the Nashville Biscuit House. This casual and welcoming restaurant has been hailed as the "Best Breakfast in Nashville" by the city's residents, and diners appreciate the fact that they can get their favorite meal all day long. The menu is filled with country-style meals, such as platters that feature biscuits and gravy and homefry bowls that include homefries topped with cheese and eggs. Some people love their breakfast so much, they leave with a T-shirt bearing the restaurant's name and logo!

Proper Bagel

While a Southern breakfast certainly has its appeal, sometimes even those in Nashville need a quick, yet hearty, breakfast. Enter Proper Bagel, which brings with it the homemade bagels that became famous in New York City. While the basis of this restaurant is the beloved bagel, the menu offers a variety that can't be found at many other bagel joints in the city. From bagels topped with homemade jam and custom cream cheese to delectable bagel breakfast sandwiches and bagel salad sandwiches, there is something for every palate.


Monell's has been a Nashville staple since the late 19th century, when it was established in Germantown. Now, there are three locations in the city, and all diners will enjoy an authentic Southern breakfast wherever they choose to eat. Breakfast meals are served during the morning hours, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. At Monell's, no matter what you get, you can rest assured that a plate of crispy homemade fried chicken will arrive at your table as well.

Tourists who are looking for a quick bite to eat before they head out to see the sights and residents who want to begin their day with a flavorful, fulfilling meal will discover there's no shortage of delicious breakfast options in Nashville. In this city, old fashioned Southern cooking will always reign supreme.
