NASHVILLE - BEST BRUNCH NEAR HERMITAGE ?
Hey Southern Hounders
Am staying in Nashville over 4 July weekend - leaving 5 July , so looking for great brunch for last morning before long drive to Atlanta and then flight back to UK. Staying at the Hermitage - so what are the best places to go whether in terms of quality, atmosphere or ideally both ? !
Looking for a last day unforgettable experience to remember holiday by, and more than likely a good hangover cure too.
If you could specify whether places are in stumbling distance from the Hermitage and whether there is a need to book, that would be a real help.
Germantown Cafe has a great Sunday brunch and is just a quick (5 minutes or so) car/cab ride from the Hermitage. It is in the Germantown area and has great shrimp & grits, different benedicts, etc. with a great view of downtown http://www.germantowncafe.com/ Just across the street there is a great coffee shop called Drink Haus http://www.drinkhaus.com/ that opens at 9am on Sunday so you could start working on your hangover there prior to brunch. It's a nice neighborhood for a walk.
Hillsboro Village has several places for brunch as well and it's also just a 5-10 minute ride away. Fido is a coffee shop (also serves beer and wine) with great food (breakfast burritos, wonderful oatmeal, etc.) http://www.bongojava.com/fido.php and just next door is Jackson's which has a great brunch with a full bar for bloody mary's, etc. Pancake Pantry is next door which gets lots of press and folks either love it or think it's overrated. I fall into the second category -- no pancake is worth standing in line when I'm hot, hungry, and potentially hungover!
Hope this helps; enjoy your visit!
