Brunch (noun): a crossover between breakfast and lunch; may be enjoyed as a celebration or simply because you didn’t make it out in time for chick-n-minis at Chick-Fil-A; best served with a mimosa, smoothie or fresh cold-pressed juice
Whether you are wanting to fuel up for a long day of adventures, hosting a bridal shower or really just need something greasy and loaded with carbs, we’ve got you covered with this brunch guide full of Instagram-worthy local places.
Strawberry Alley Ale Works
They have a complimentary brunch bar, y’all! Find something for everyone at this downtown spot with a menu boasting classics such as breakfast tacos, shrimp & grits and chicken & waffles. The mimosa mason jars are perfect to share, and they serve a mean Bloody Mary for anyone needing a little pick‑me‑up. Their brunch bar has some of the best brownies we’ve ever tasted, and the patio views of the river are superior.
Be sure to check out Upstairs at Strawberry Alley, too!
The Mad Herbalist
Nestled in the woods right off Madison Street, this charming little spot serves up unique brunch items like a brisket grit bowl, herbalist hash and roasted beet hummus. Build your own tier with the three menu items that pique your interest the most that day and be sure to try a flight of their signature ‘teamosas’ to get your morning started.
Grab your girls for a mimosa and a Blueberry & Basil Grilled Cheese at this downtown gathering place. If you’re going big, try the Hungover & Scrambled. If you’re going simple, order the Avocado Toast. There’s really something for everyone here no matter what you’re feeling.
Three words: pallet of biscuits. This really is a filling station with menu items like Benedict Burger Sliders, the Eggs Over Hammy Melt, the Boot Scootin’ Burger and the Smokey & the Brisket Omelet. Located behind Miss Lucille’s Marketplace, Dock 17 truly is one of our favorite hidden gems.
The Vine on Franklin
Champagne AND a brunch board? We think this is what dreams are made of! This downtown wine bar has recently joined the Clarksville brunch scene and we sure do love them for it.
The Sol Press Co.
Calling all health fanatics! This new Clarksville hotspot is a go-to for all your smoothie bowl and overnight oats needs. Stay awhile and recharge in this fun spot before grabbing a fresh cold-pressed juice and a vegan chocolate chip protein cookie to go. Avocado toast with microgreens, anyone?
Blackhorse Pub & Brewery
Be sure to try out the brunch menu at this Clarksville classic. They serve up all the favorites including Eggs Benedict, omelets, and classic pancakes. If you can’t decide, try the Brewmaster’s Breakfast to get a bit of everything.
Silke’s Old World Breads
Feeling up for a quick trip to Europe? Check out Silke’s for authentic German baked goods and brunch options like the Leberkase with Egg Plate or Bratwurst Brotchen. Don’t worry if that’s not your vibe for the day. Silke’s also serves up yummy sandwiches like Melted Brie and Apple and offers a large selection of specialty coffees.
Yada on Franklin
Locals know Yada for its cichetti-style dining. This Italian style of dining is much different than what you will find at most American restaurants. Rather than everyone at the table getting their own large portion of whatever they choose, cichetti-style dining promotes sharing small plates with the table and ordering throughout the meal until everyone is full. Their "brunchetti" menu boasts unique dishes such as burrata & strawberry toast, blue polenta and shrimp, and challah french toast bites. Don't worry, they also have classics like eggs benedict and biscuits & gravy. Be sure to try an order of the yada donuts!
Wild Flour Bake Shop
If you love bread as much as we do, this is the place for you! Wild Flour turns their made-from-scratch biscuits and bread into delicious brunch options such as Cinnamon Roll French Toast, the Ridicu-Biscuit, and classic avocado toast with a twist. They even have a Create Your Own biscuit option with additions like honey butter, bacon, pimento cheese and the jam of the day.
This Sango spot is sure to satisfy all your açaí bowl cravings. If you’re needing something a bit heartier, try one of their gourmet breakfast burritos and freshly‑made juices.
Miss Lucille’s Café
While the menu is more on the lunch side of brunch, this Clarksville staple is a great place to start your day. The coffee shop right outside serves up yummy artisan coffees and smoothies, and for those who aren’t feeling a full-on lunch moment, take a look at the pastry display. Grab the one (or four!) that looks the best and enjoy brunch with the gals before perusing the aisles of Miss Lucille’s Marketplace.
