This place was recommended by our hotel, which is fortunate since it would be unlikely that we'd stumble on it ourselves. A little out of the way, but worth the short trip. This was clearly the best dinner of our four-day stay in Nashville - and we had some other good ones too. The restaurant is simple, not pretentious, but... More

While visiting Nashville, my niece introduced us to this restaurant. This was a great place! We had brunch on a Saturday after the Farmers Market which was very close by. Our food was excellent and well priced. Service was outstanding and atmosphere very comfortable and laid back. I had the shrimp and grits - it was wonderful! One of us... More

We decided to celebrate my son's birthday at the Germantown Cafe. When I made reservations on the phone, I told the person it was my son's birthday. He asked his name and so I assumed they might honor him with a piece of cake. We arrived on time, were seated, and ordered. My husband got some meatball appetizers as did... More

I don't give a whole lot of 5/5 reviews, but the Germantown Cafe truly deserves one. The menu offers typical brunch items, but with inventive twists on favorites. I had Crab Cakes Benedict; my wife had a Salmon BLT. Both were excellent. Several other menu items caught my attention, but I have only so much stomach space. Good coffee. Young,... More

The last time I went I was attending a shower and didn't realize they had a private room. The service and food were very good and the shower was great.

My husband and I went for our 5th anniversary dinner. I don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it, and I am glad. My only complaint was our waitress seemed a little distracted despite the fact that we were her only table for over half of our meal. We decided on 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. We asked... More

We were in town for homecoming and was looking for somewhere to eat. Nice place in the Germantown area, close to our alma mater, TSU. Everything everyone selected was great! Look forward to returning next year!

Eight of us looking for lunch and this cafe right down from the place we were staying. Didn't have reservations, but they managed to seat us within about 10 minutes. I and several others had the open-face chicken salad and it was scrumptious! Everything else looked pretty good too! Burgers were given very good reviews from our group too! Several... More

Very nice restaurant with a good view on Nashville skyline. Good local beers will be proposed in bottles. I particularly appreciated the fried green tomatoes as a starter. I continued with bison meat with a surprising lemon yoghurt sauce. You should try the lemon pie for dessert ! Good place in a calm atmosphere.

Looking for something good to eat reasonable priced I stumbled upon this place. Wide menu selection but since it was lunch I had the Burger Special. Vey Good. I plan to go back again and try some of their other menu items
