There is just something so satisfying about a big breakfast. My normal breakfast routine is fairly simple, an English muffin, cereal or yogurt, but every now and then, all I want on a Saturday morning is a biscuit, grits, sausage, eggs over easy, the works. Brother Juniper’s in Memphis, Tennessee serves this ideal breakfast. Voted “Best Breakfast” in Memphis and in the nation, this family owned restaurant provides delicious and homemade breads, pastries and all the fixins’ you need to start the morning in Memphis.
The Koplin family, owners, moved to Memphis in 2000 to take over the Brother Juniper’s College Inn and quickly became a community contributor.
Ginger and I travelled to Memphis last fall, stayed with her in-laws and they insisted upon eating at Brother Juniper’s on Sunday morning before church. To say the least, we were not disappointed. The Koplin family is doing something right because Rachael Ray featured this local spot on her $40 a day Food Network television show.
Truth be told, everyone loves a good breakfast. Even more than good breakfast, the Koplin family began an apprentice program, Baking Bread, Raising Hope to provide artisanal bread making skills to at risk youth.
Who doesn’t love eating and eating for a good cause? Me, I do, I do!!! Go and see the Koplin family in action at Brother Juniper’s.
