Cute place

Love this place. Great menu and food and delicious coffee. I also bought a couple of delicious pastries. Setting is very neat, very urban and earthy.

Family of 6 had meal for $62. So... Budget away for good trout dish and nice toasty chicken quesadilla . Kids pasta is large rigatoni and a mild marinara. Kids chocolate milks well liked and local dairy producer. Nearby bar scene made all our kids (under 12) a little uneasy as we walked about 6:45 pm up tr streets to... More

You may not find a seat, so get your eating and drinking while standing talents brushed-up before going. Besides that, the place is super cute. The breakfast burger with arugula, egg, cream cheese and chives on a bagel had me singing. The coffee comes in a great big ol' mug and is roasted tastiness. Heads up, don't go in your... More

We went there because we wanted to visit a hometown coffee shop. We totally recommend ordering a Latte made with Rosemary Honey and Cinnamon. It was delicious and I would go back just to get it.

You can order very quickly but it takes a while to get your food for Saturday brunch so allow yourself some extra time. Waffles, Pancakes, and California were all great options and the bacon was spot on! Pretty much all of the choices were less than $10. I'll definitely be back!

Great coffee, specialty lattes, but what is surprising is great FOOD! Not only great bacon, grain pancakes, but great sandwiches and the best chips and homemade salsa! Come on a sunny day and sit outside! Must visit this place on 12-south!

This is a trendy coffee shop that also has an earthy feel. The food is delicious and can cater to gluten free dining. I liked the atmosphere and went for breakfast both days I was in Nashville.

This was a busy place on a Friday morning. You order at the counter and find a table. The indoor patio was sunny and warm on a cold winter day. The eggs and bacon were perfectly done and I enjoyed the homemade jam, too. Definitely try the bacon!

Great atmosphere, nice people, amazing coffee. Never had a Monkey mocha before but I liked it! The food was great too. I can't remember which sandwich I had but the woman taking my order suggested it. Take their advice, they know what's good. I loved the little touches. The table numbers for receiving the food were so cute, they had... More
