About 10 of us are visiting Memphis and staying at a hotel on Beale Street:

Looking for suggestions for Breakfast and Brunch in that area...

Thanks for your help

    For lunch or dinner, try Big Foot Lodge. It's right across the street from the Peabody on 2nd street. Pretty yummy.

      Brother Juniper's is good, but I think you'd be disappointed if you took a cab all the way out there - it would probably be a 20 minute cab ride from downtown and would make for a pretty expensive breakfast for 10 people once you took several cabs round-trip. Peabody brunch is good but expensive. I'd vote for the Arcade. Just ride the trolley.

        I second the rec for the Arcade. They have good biscuts and great atmosphere.

        Bon-Ton Cafe & The Arcade are good - Arcade is an old diner in the artsy area of S Main St, Bon-Ton is a classic in downtown. The Peabody brunch is a must-do. If you're able to get away - Brother Juniper's in the U of M area has the best breakfast in town.

          Thanks if we're staying close to the Peabody it seems that both Bon Ton and The Arcade are close, how hard is it to get a cab back and forth from Brother Junipers

            It's not hard. There are always cabs waiting at the Peabody. Just get the concierge to write down a cab number for the trip back, or arrange for the driver to come pick you back up.
