Brunch Run :: Our Favorite Carbs in Knoxville

It's the most important meal of the day, and we've got plenty of options in East Tennessee to help you choose! Get your carb on at one of these awesome breakfast spots in and around Knoxville!


…and in the morning we’re *getting* WAFFLES! Donkey from Shrek said it best! Take your favorite breakfast item up a notch with these twists! Love churros? Us too! Get a delicious cinnamon sugar waffle at the Farmacy on Northshore. Is peanut butter more your thing? Order your waffle Elvis-style at Holly’s Gourmet Market out west. How does Chicken on your waffles sound to you? Get your southern staple on at Balter Beerworks or keep it classic with a cinnamon swirl drizzle at Inskip Grill.

Cinnamon Rolls

At this point, we’re on a roll! CINNAMON ROLL! If you’re feeling hungry head to Scrambled Jakes for their giant Sin-O-Man. It’s big enough for you and a friend, but we won’t judge if you want it all to yourself! Looking for something outside of the box? Check out Cinnaholics for crazy toppings and vegan options! Warning: you might become addicted!


Donuts are the perfect sweet treat to get your morning going! Pick up a dozen cinnamon twists at Beaver’s Dough Joe in Karnes. Try a classic glazed sweet at Pop’s. Swing by Status Dough out west or downtown for an artisan-style apple fritter! Just don’t forget about PastelerĂ­a RUFY on Tazewell Pike!
