Let me start off by saying I'm not much of a coffee drinker, however the friends that I met with are and this was their suggestion. They do love their coffee and it is one of their favorite places ever to get coffee drinks. However, for it be a "coffee" place, the food is absolutely amazing and I probably will... More

The line can be long but if you have the time, it is worth the wait! The food equals the fun atmosphere. Very popular place with the locals because the food is always fresh and delicious. Outside dining is fun in Hillsboro Villlage during the nice weather.

We're a little old for this place, but the breakfast was wonderful. The egg scrambles were really well done (interesting combos) and the coffee was fresh and hot. No trouble getting a table in the morning, even with a line for food. Great coffee and vibe.

I ended up here because the line at the Pancake Pantry was huge, and life is too short sometimes to wait in line. Let me tell you: best decision ever. I ordered pancakes and hot cocoa here, and they were EXCELLENT. I cannot stress this enough: EXCELLENT. If you are visiting Nashville, do yourself a favor and have breakfast/brunch here.... More

egg and cheese bagel is OK as was a muffin but the SPUDS were the hit. The local latte w/ honey and cinnamon was just perfect and delicious and not too sweet. Our daughter had the Evergreen Latte which had Rosemary and some other herbs - tasted like Christmas. Parking out back says first 2 hours are free but we... More

Enjoyed Having coffee and meeting friends here or enjoying time alone when I lived in Nashville. We try to make sure it ends up on our visit list whenever we are back in town. Food good and love the vanilla lattes.

I have dined three times at Fido in the past eight months, and I was never disappointed. For a breakfast and lunch spot, this restaurant has an interesting menu and excellent service. The food is well-prepared from fresh ingredients, and it is consistently served at the appropriate temperature. I like Fido so much that I find myself wanting to return... More

We were headed for another iconic breakfast spot nearby, with a line partway down the block, since it was mentioned in several reviews. However, a native turned us on to Fido instead. We were glad she did. Funky place, great coffee, amazing breakfasts at reasonable prices. Had the Fido omelette - applewood smoked bacon, arugula, leeks, and white cheddar. Certainly... More

This place has a lot of character. The food was great too. You wait in a line to place your order. Daily specials are written on the chaulkboard. After you order, you can sit down and wait for your food to be delivered. All day breakfasts.
