The Fig Tree was a coffee house in Helmsburg, about 5 miles from Nashville. While open, it was a quaint little joint in the country that had excellent coffees and atmosphere. Sadly, it was a lttile too far out in the country and closed several months ago.

I drove by the business for several years going back and forth to work before I even knew it was there. You park in the back. But what a unique place! African coffee and artwork, entertainment on Thursdays, the only wireless internet around, and (occasionally) live local theater too. The second floor is all about Lord of the Rings and... More

The owners, Glenn and Thomi Elmore are courteous, friendly, and work hard to provide their patrons with a wonderful experience. The gallery is exquisite... More

For a real treat ask for the Lucky Charm Latte - very unique, and the carrot cake - delicious. I found the atmosphere to be very warm and friendly and a... More

It's not an easy or obvious place to find, hidden as it is in the tiny town of Helmsburg, Indiana. Yet, for those lucky ones that experience the Fig Tree Gallery and Coffee Shop it's more than worth the trip! This is a haven of enlightenment, offering something for nearly every taste, from the extensive African Art collection to the... More
