Uptown Cafe

I returned home for a quick 24-hour visit a couple weekends ago, and Uptown Cafe was on the menu.  Even though they serve other meals, the only time I've ever eaten here has been for brunch.  Because brunch is basically my favorite meal on earth.

I ordered bacon and a scrambled egg as a side to my brunch dish, because protein makes me feel fuller.  I probably didn't need it, but isn't it pretty?  The bacon was perfectly crispy, the way I like it.

For my main dish, the pièce de résistance, I ordered the beautiful Creme Brûlée French Toast.  It was as delicious as it sounds, almost like a dessert for breakfast.  It tasted more like a bread pudding than a French toast, super thick and a huge slice.  The fresh fruit and powdered sugar were perfect, no syrup or anything extra needed.  I highly recommend it if you're visiting the restaurant for brunch!  Very heavy, though, so be forewarned.  It was a true indulgence.

Service at the Uptown is consistently good, and while there is often a wait I believe it's worth it.  Call ahead for a reservation like we did with our party of eight.  It's also clean and friendly, and conveniently located just off the town square downtown.  Try it sometime!

I also visited Oliver Winery Downtown and Korea Restaurant; click the links for my Yelp reviews!


  1. If I could, I would start a food/travel show where I just try out all the brunch spots. It would be a dream.

  2. Ugh. Uptown has the best biscuit and gravy, which is hard to even find on menus out here. Also? They have the best bathroom hand dryer I've ever encountered. I know that's a weird thing to comment on, but I stand by it.

  3. And the bathrooms are a good size, which I like. LOL

    You need to come to Nashville; there are biscuits and gravy on every corner. I even had them at my birthday party!
