I'm gonna be honest, this place was on my list because I saw it on the show Nashville. It's a normal hipster coffee shop. It's fine, nothing to shake a stick at. Their ordering line is weird and not conducive to casual ordering. I felt like I could only get coffee, only to discover later that I could have had... More

This place is located behind a parking lot, behind a place called "Local Honey". As you turn into the parking lot, you see this cute gated entry way to Barista Parlor with large lighted marquee letters. The set up is on point. The baristas are all in the center of the restaurant with tables all around to watch them craft... More

The Barista Parlor is in the Gulch section of Nashville. We were looking for a good cup of coffee and a muffin. There was a long line outside the place across the street so we asked the hotel front desk for a good coffee recommendation. He suggested the Barista Parlor. It was located in a shop back off of Gallatin... More

We had a nice breakfast with great coffee, waffles are light and quite flavorful. You can get several options on biscuits. In addition, they offer very expensive chocolate bars !

Working out of a refurbished transmission shop the baristas at this coffee shop create some very unique and delicious coffee creations. Make sure you try one of their specialty drinks and step away from the typical chain mocha. Donuts and breakfast sandwiches are available for those looking for more than coffee. Creative creations and a funky location make this a... More

Coming to Nashville, it was recommended that we stop in here. Atmosphere: cool. Vibe: too cool for you. Staff wasn't super friendly. For first timers, their concept and layout was confusing considering they didn't let you look at their clipboard style menu away from the register, meaning you didn't have time to soak it in before the guy behind the...

It's billed as Nashville's #1 coffee shop, which begs the question: Did they conduct the survey? It's an interesting setting and the homemade pop tart is a cute offering, and the real turntable is throwback fun, but the coffee - oh, tea, the coffee - is expensive and not worth the price. In summary: waaaaaaaaaaay too impressed with itself and... More

Had the Irish Whisker - wow - loved it. Definitely try the chocolates too. Staff were on top of their game and did a great job helping us pick out a grinder and then gave us great pointers on proper use. So refreshing. And the buildout is top notch - garage doors to open in good weather, hand crafted tables,... More

Gourmet coffee at its finest. The setting is a garage with scientific looking equipment. The flavors are smooth, rich and very interesting. Good service but not overly friendly. A little snobby but not off-putting. Definitely an experience worth having but be ready to pay for it.

The espresso they pull is less than mediocre, The cream is so thin it disappears by the time you drink it. Very disappointing for an espresso expert and is also very expensive. Location is beautiful. Good place to hang out.
