In an attempt to cover the Memphis must-tries, I created a Memphis City Guide earlier in the year of my favorite finds around town.

A flaky almond croissant at Cafe Keough. Baked eggs in Brioche at Tart. A ginger scone and latté at Muddy's. Sweet potato pancakes in Elvis' booth at Arcade. Grapefruit brulée at Porcellino's.

So, where to brunch first? Let me know where you choose during this gorgeous autumn weekend!
