Coffee and food were tasty and reasonably priced. But if you find a long line ahead of you, I wouldn't say that it's worth the wait.

Small & adorable Renovated bungalow turned restaurant. Signage says coffee house but the food is great. Husband thought portions were small but I was pleased with the freshness & quality. Fruit could of been a bit more ripe. Overall, I'd still go back again

It must be good if there's always a crowd. The mimosas and omelettes are worth the crowded space. The seating is odd and privacy is out of the conversation but...wow...my omelette was amazing. I had the gluten free toast which was by far...the best.

This was my first visit and the food was delicious. The variety on the menu was great and our server was amazing! I tried the sangria and it was made differently than I'm used to. Thanks for a great evening!!

I bugged my husband to take me here....seriously. I was craving a perfect coffee and i was not disappointed. We walked there from downtown and it was a pleasant trip to a wonderful little slice of calm in the booming music city. LOVED it!

For $15 you get 3 "pours" of wine and snacks. The snacks include hummus, small sandwiches, cheese tray, olives, and more. The snacks pair well with the wine and the wine selections offer a variety.

I got an iced chai latte. It was delicious. They also sell it bottled. They offer coffee, tea, food, and more. There are a few areas for seating and two single restrooms. It was a great place to relax and the staff were engaging.

We visit Nashville every fews months. This was our first time dining here and we will be back! The food is great and the wait staff very friendly. It's a few blocks from broadway but worth the walk!

Wow! If you want to go to a hip and trendy place on 12th street in Nashville go no further. Great staff super friendly, coffee is amazing, breakfast was amazing. Doesn't matter when you get there it's a wait on a Sunday morning. Outside and inside seating. Great for families, friends. Love this place.

The food is great and the service is as well. Had breakfast here twice while we were in Nashville. Prices are very reasonable as well.
