Popular Memphis breakfast pop-up Kinfolk to open a restaurant. Here’s what we know.

Kinfolk will soon have its own home.

The popular weekend breakfast pop-up at Comeback Coffee is moving to 111 Harbor Town Square this summer.

Chef and owner Cole Jeanes said he hopes to open the restaurant in mid-August.

“Think of this as version 3.0 of Kinfolk,” he said of his plans for the next step of his business.

Jeanes first launched Kinfolk in 2017 as a vendor at the now-closed Puck Food Hall. After a stint catering private events and working for chef Jimmy Gentry (where his famous herb biscuits appeared on the brunch menu of P.O. Press), Jeanes relaunched Kinfolk in February 2022 at Comeback Coffee.
