This restaurant has been a staple for me since college days. It's practically on the u of Mem campus. I've tried almost everything on the menu. I always leave there feeling nourishes. The strawn bread is homemade and available by the loaf to take with you. If there's any left. Yummy.

Almost always a waiting line, but it is worth it, and they give you coffee while you wait. Great food, and good portions

Always a great place for home cooked breakfast. Their biscuits are the best and can't be missed. Fun place to meet friends for breakfast.

We finally made it to Brother Junipers today. Great menu!- so many traditional favorites and unique creations. Lots of different omelet choices- even vegetarian ones. They even serve specialty espressos. Since we went on a weekday, later in the morning, we were able to be seated right away. Within minutes our breakfast was served up hot and delicious. They take...

The open faced omelette was great. There was a 40-minute wait and I've heard there's always a wait. The breakfast was good but maybe not worth waiting 40 mins.

My children and I had never been here and decided to try it out. We arrived at 11 am on a Wednesday and it was a 45 minute wait. Fine. We got our table but then had to wait another hour for our food. Not having had breakfast yet we were all pretty famished by 1 pm. The food was... More

30 minute wait, appears normal. Small inside, cozy. Great raspberry mocha and juniper latte. Normal coffee was subpar. If you like grits the cheesy grits were good and peppery. The breakfast potato fries were great. The garden and gyro omelette was very good, especially adding the house mango scotch pepper sauce. The monte Cristo was different, my wife loved it.... More
