best brunches in Nashville
Nelson’s Greenbrier

Nelson’s Greenbrier Distillery

At the top of my list is this restaurant with a whiskey distillery (j/k, but the restaurant is so good, it feels that way!). Nelson’s offers delicious cocktails and an elevated, classic brunch menu (try the monkey bread!) Plus, it has a great vibe, can accommodate groups, and offers parking. Take a tour while you’re there for the full experience.

Park Cafe

There’s a reason this restaurant has been a long standing staple of Sylvan Park – it’s just good. Brunch service is new, though, and delicious. And with a beautiful interior and a covered patio with live music (and bottomless mimosas!), you just can’t go wrong.

Southside Kitchen and Pub

For a more casual vibe, Southside Kitchen is a go-to. Catch the game while indulging in their heavenly cinnamon roll and bottomless mimosas.

Xiao Bao

Combining traditional American brunch ingredients with their Asian comfort food menu, Xiao Bao is one of the most unique brunches around and one of my favorite restaurants in general.


A Nashville classic, Sinema offers a bottomless brunch where they bring the dishes out to you. So, the food isn’t sitting around and you can order more of whatever you like best. Plus, their bathrooms are the best in Nashville for selfies.

Buttermilk Ranch

The crowds at this 12 South hotspot can be prohibitive, but there is a reason everyone loves it so much! Pro tip – get on their wait list online before heading out. Or, even better, go during the week, since they’re open 7 days. They offer at least 3 different coffee-based boozy drinks, as well as several mocktails.


Okay, I know this is a chain and we love to support local around here. But…it’s also really good. The old school diner vibes, paired with an impressive brunch cocktail menu and a menu that features spins on all the breakfast classics, it’s worth a visit.

Honorable Mention:


While I typically prefer a more traditional brunch menu and would rather Noko for dinner than brunch, it is one of the best restaurants in town and everything they do is excellent. So, no list of “bests” is complete without them.

Those are my favorites right now. What would you add to the list? Leave a comment below with your tip!
