FAQs

1. What is considered brunch? For this list, the restaurant must have a Saturday and/or Sunday brunch menu different from their usual breakfast/lunch menu, and they should serve alcohol.  Cafe Ecelctic is midtown's exception: BYOB with no corkage fee also counts.

2. Just a friendly reminder that prices and menus are always subject to change, and so is this guide.  

3. Why just Midtown? Oh, did you miss our Downtown Brunch Guide? You can find it right here. And East Memphis' is here.
