When you live in a city known for its fabulous culinary reputation of stellar restaurant options, the weekends are perfect to meet up with friends for brunch! Whether you fancy a celebration of all things Benedict or some boozy delights to accommodate your meal, here’s a list of where you can find the best brunch in Chattanooga, TN, near your luxury apartment.
Tupelo Honey is a brunch favorite for all the right reasons — fluffy and mouth-watering biscuits topped with an impressive selection of divine flavors. For something really hearty to indulge in, order the fried chicken and biscuits, which features buttermilk fried chicken, smoked ham, milk gravy, and basil. For something on the lighter side, you can’t go wrong with the classic smashed avocado toast topped with fried eggs, goat cheese, paprika, pickled onion, and a sriracha honey drizzle served on health-nut bread with a side of salt-roasted beets and greens. And the Banana Pudding Dream brioche French toast or sweet potato pancakes? Amazing! Enjoy tasty creamy banana pudding and crumbled vanilla wafer served with whipped cream and powdered sugar.
If you’ve lived in Chattanooga long, you know City Café Diner is a wonder! If you haven’t tried it yet, then prepare to add it to your dining to-do list. The Irish Benedict is a fantastic medley of poached eggs and corned beef hash on an English muffin covered with hollandaise sauce, or opt for the German-style potato pancakes with apple sauce and sour cream. Their specialty omelets are impressive — from the classic Western omelet with ham, onions, and green peppers to the Farmer’s omelet with sautéed mushrooms, onions, sausage, and cheddar cheese served over home fries with white gravy. For some brunch fun, you can always build your own with your choice of more than 30 ingredients!
Have you ever experienced a breakfast sandwich on honey white bread with ham, Swiss cheese, and strawberry jam dipped in egg and grilled? Order the Monkey Cristo for an out-of-this-world brunch extravaganza! Pair that with a bloody mary, mimosa, or Irish coffee, and you’ll be in foodie heaven! The Jolene is dynamic, as well — cornbread topped with Broadbent country ham, two fried eggs over medium, and pepper gravy. For something a little healthier, try the chilled Mediterranean quinoa with herbed tofu, basil pesto marinated chickpeas, sprouts, red onions, cucumbers, sun-dried tomato pesto.
If your palate leans more toward the sweeter side of things for brunch, Adelle’s Creperie will not disappoint with their fantastic 16-inch crepes made in house every day. Try The Royale with Nutella, strawberries, and chocolate drizzle; The Bee’s Knees with Nutella, bananas, cinnamon maple sprinkle, and honey drizzle; or London’s Calling with fresh squeezed lemon and organic sugar. If savory is what you’re craving, you’re in luck! Try The Crowd Pleaser with ham, egg, Swiss cheese, and paprika hollandaise; The Roma with turkey, roasted red tomato, pesto, havarti cheese, and Adelle’s Dijon sauce; or The Great Caper with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, capers, spinach, and hollandaise.
