Fresh and wholesome breakfast at Mimosa

Some consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day. Mimosa in Franklin honors that line of thinking by exclusively serving breakfast.


“We have taken a more wholesome and conscious approach to breakfast than other places in this area,” said owner Apostoli Everniadis. “We use only local ingredients, and we have a great relationship with farmers and local companies.”

Why Mimosa?

The name of the restaurant, which opened in February 2015, has two meanings: It is an adult beverage, and also a flowering tree native to Asia that now also grows in other parts of the world, including the Southwest United States.

“We were looking for a name that was related to breakfast but also had another meaning,” Everniadis said.

Everniadis was born in Milwaukee to parents who ran restaurants. He is continuing his family heritage in the restaurant business.

Concientious approach

The decor at Mimosa includes recycled items from barns and egg cartons. They not only serve an aesthetic purpose, but also help with acoustics. 

“The conscientious approach that we have for our kitchen and menu also applies to the decor,” Everniadis noted. 

Although Everniadis is a restaurateur, he is also a software developer who plays the drums as a hobby. He said he opened the restaurant because he missed the social aspects of the family business. He chose to focus on breakfast to allow him to continue to pursue his other interests in the evening.

“I need (the drums) to bang on after hours in the basement,” he said. “You have to do this in the restaurant business to stay focused and keep you sane.”

Menu

The menu includes everything you’d expect from a breakfast restaurant: pancakes, French toast, waffles and eggs. Mimosa goes through 5,000 to 6,000 eggs a week making omelettes, eggs Benedict and skillets. Other menu items include a morning jambalaya, chicken souvla skillet and, for dessert, a greek yogurt banana split.
