Good selection of food and coffee concoctions. Laid back atmosphere despite being in a busy part of the area. Healthy options as well and accommodating to food allergies/sensitivities. Wifi available as well.

I used to live in this neighborhood and I absolutely love everything that's going on here now. I'm completely obsessed with the coffee shop vibe and am over joyed that there are so many popping up around Nashville. One of the reasons this is one of my faves is they serve wine in addition to coffee and food. That's all... More

We went here based on Trip Advisor reviews and it was a good choice. Let me say first that this isn't a sit down and order place and there are no wait staff per se. You grab a menu from the wall and stand in line to order, you are given a cute sign to place on your table and... More

Coffee was good but overpriced. Service was quick and helpful. The wait for food was too long so we went to Josephine's instead.

Stopped for a quick breakfast and so glad I did. Enjoyed probably one of the most delicious omelettes I've ever had made with bacon, cheddar, tomato & avocado- served alongside their Ginger Revive tea. I'm not a coffee drinker but if you are, this is the place to tap into your caffeine addiction.

Wonderful breakfast place. Coffee was great and the buckwheat waffles were delicious. Glad we tried it and will definitely go back.

Had breakfast here on recent visit to Nashville. Coffee was greatt! I had the whole grain pancakes with eggs and farmhouse bacon, and everything was excellent. The pancakes were rich and had great flavor (sometimes a challenge with whole grain), the eggs were done perfectly and the bacon was thick, salty and crispy deliciousness. Hubby had a great breakfast sandwich... More
