Have you ever experienced a red velvet waffle with a cream cheese drizzle or a blueberry cornmeal waffle with cinnamon molasses and whipped mascarpone? Pair one of those with a Bellini sparkle or a blood orange mimosa and you’ll be in brunch heaven! The Tavern prides itself with a menu designed around a cool-casual, gastro-pub concept that is a favorite among Nashville foodies.
The menu at Henley is all about fusing Southern soul with French technique — a one-of-a-kind brunch experience that tastes divine. If you want something savory, order the five cheese quiche filled with buttermilk cheddar, sharp cheddar, Gouda, raclette, goat cheese, sweet onion, local kale, and a mushroom side salad. If you’re leaning more toward the sweet end, try the Dutch baby with sorghum soaked dried cherries, whipped cream, and toasted pecans.
If mimosas are a must-have staple at your brunch table, Von Elrod’s will not disappoint with their signature “big a** mimosas” served in a one-liter stein! Start off with a cinnamon pretzel with cream cheese icing or their iconic sausage balls. Other menu favorites also include smoked brisket hash with grilled corn, potatoes, a sunny side egg, and smoked jalapeño hollandaise, and the chicken fried chicken and biscuit served with Tabasco butter, local honey, and sausage gravy. And as it’s only a short drive from your upscale Nashville apartment home, it will be a weekend hot spot for sure!
How does pizza with a brunch twist sound? Whiskey Kitchen’s Hot & Sunny Pizza is fantastic — red-eye gravy, cheddar, egg yolk, hot sauce, Gifford’s bacon, chive, and home fries on a thin crust.

Pair those selections with their “wicked” bloody mary or blackberry sangria and you’ll be celebrating your new favorite weekend hot spot in Southern hospitality style!
The Southern is a brunch favorite for all the right reasons — shrimp and grits, crab cake hash, lamb sausage and hash, Southern fried egg sandwich, etc. For something a little different with out-of-this-world flavor, order My Way, a special dish of brown butter linguini topped with pine nuts, goat cheese, bacon lardons, and two sunny side up Willow Farm eggs. If you’re a Benedict fan, the steak and biscuit Benedict is a must try — grilled beef tenderloin, poached Willow Farm eggs, a bleu cheese biscuit, and hollandaise served with mixed greens and grilled potatoes.
