    If you’ve got a little time to sit down for a nice breakfast in the morning, this European-style eatery located right in 5 Points should be your go-to. It's tough to go wrong with the simple American Breakfast of scrambled eggs, cheddar grits, and smoked bacon (or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, they amazingly make Croissant French Toast).

    Wanna see your breakfast cooked right in front of you? Pfunky Griddle is the spot. Each table is equipped with a griddle in the middle where you can watch ingredients turn into food. And for just $5.99 (!) you can eat ALL of the fresh pancakes you want. And we highly encourage you to go a little crazy with the pancake toppings, considering that there are over 25 to choose from.

    This Nashville original bakery is famous for its breads and pastries, but it makes a mean breakfast Croissant Sandwich, too. If you've never had one, you're missing out.

    Avocado is the hot breakfast food right now (not literally... unless you add Sriracha, which, let's face it, you probably will) and Frothy Monkey has got you covered. The California satisfies all of your avo needs by adding two pieces of sourdough, fried eggs, salsa, and sprouts. And if you go to the Downtown location, you can even order a Bloody to wash it all down.

    Sure, you knew the Southern was good for lunch and dinner, but the early bird gets way more than a worm here. You didn’t think we were going to give you a Nashville breakfast round-up and forget the chicken and waffles, did you?

    Crêpes for breakfast? Um, yes. The Sunrise crêpe is its most popular breakfast crêpe as it’s a classic morning meal: eggs, cheese, and your choice of meat served inside a deliciously light and fluffy pancake. But don’t limit yourself. Its menu features a nice variety of both sweet and savory crêpes and even the option to "design your own."

    If you want a cup of coffee crafted with the same delicate care that you might expect to get from a heart surgeon, look no further. These guys take coffee & baked goods very, very seriously. Neighborhood locals will evangelize about their sausage biscuits, but you can’t go wrong with their fruit Pop's Tarts, either. And, as a cherry on top, you simply can’t beat the laid-back, comfortable atmosphere here either.

    Sometimes all you need in the morning is a fresh, warm bagel sandwich loaded with egg, cheese, and sausage (or a bunch of stuff from a really varied menu) handed to you by the friendliest bagel staff you ever did meet. This is precisely what Bagel Face provides.

    What started out as a grocery store in the '50s is now one of Downtown Nashville’s best spots for a great morning meal. Puckett’s has some of the best pulled pork in all of Tennessee, so it’s just natural (natural to a Tennessean, at least) to pile it on top of sweet potato pancakes and fried apples. For breakfast.

    Biscuit Love is a delicious combination of 100% homemade biscuits and classic Southern food. And the Princess is a prime example: a good ol' piece of hot chicken sandwiched between a warm and buttery biscuit and drizzled with sweet honey. Another Biscuit Love must-try is its "Bonuts," which are part biscuit, part donut, and completely incredible.
