Not only do Brentwood residents love Puffy Muffin, hungry folks from surrounding towns flock here for fresh baked breads and muffins. While breakfast is a busy time here, the lunch crowd keeps Lynda on her toes as well. Croissants filled with ham and cheese and the zesty chicken casserole are favorites. If you can't get enough of the fresh baked bread, don't worry, you can take a loaf or two home with you.
The Perch is the perfect addition to the Brentwood restaurant scene. This cozy little breakfast spot tempts guests with the feel of an upscale big city eatery right here in Middle Tennessee. Mouthwatering menu offerings such as Belgian waffles with nutella, omelets, and pear and brie crepes bring guests coming back morning after morning. The atmosphere and service are as delightful as the tasty breakfast treats. The location is small, but the wait is never terribly long, and the food is well worth the trip. -Lynn-nore Chittom
