What's your idea of an "American breakfast?"

For a SOUTHERN breakfast, head to Puckett's at 5th & Church. If that's not what you're looking for ... explain what you ARE looking for.

"browns"? If you mean hash browns, those ARE potatoes.

Puckett's will be fine for your purposes.

Keep in mind that traditionally in the south, grits were served instead of potatoes. (And biscuits [a sort of plain soft scone] instead of toast.) Many places these days do both, but if you want an authentic southern breakfast, skip the hash browns and get grits! Even then, hash browns come in many styles, it's interesting to see what different restaurants do with them. Some are shredded, some are cubed, some have onions and peppers and seasoning, others are just plain, some are crusty, some are soft ...

I second Puckett's. Sezvala's is just around the corner. Both will take good care of you.

Loveless Cafe is a looooooong walk from your downtown hotel.

Monell's in Germantown (walkable, a little long) does a great weekend breakfast served family style. Delicious and lots of fun meeting new people.

Speak for yourself, Holgater. Grits are essentially the same thing as polenta, just made with white corn instead of yellow, and usually not cooked as stiff.

I will say that plenty of restaurants make bad grits, and instant grits are an abomination. But properly made, real grits, are the ultimate in comfort food.

when I first saw them I was in New Orleans and I thought they looked like a bowl of porridge, so I thought, yeah, I,ll have some of them, they were horrible, really bitter, I think they might have been instant though...
