Here’s the thing: Nashville has an INSANE coffee culture. It’s boomed in the last couple of years, and we really can’t get over how caffeinated the whole city seems to be. From the east side to the west, from student-saturated Hillsboro Village to self-employed hipster hangs at Barista Parlor, we have a vibe that’s sure to fit what you love. Take a look at these unique coffee shops in Nashville!
11. Eighth & Roast
Exposed brick and Belmont students give this little spot a bit of life. The coffee is solid, and the pastries are divine - there are even options for your vegan folk!
Teensy tiny and full of character, Headquarters is the answer to your storybook coffee shop with all the baristas that know you.
Located right outside Sylvan Park, Dose. is a clean cut hot spot that's perfect for the self-employed and those looking for a solid space without the kids.
8. Red Bicycle
Crepes are the famous bit to Red Bicycle, but they also serve coffee at their Germantown and Berry Hill locations.
7. Bongo Java
Hello, Belmont! Located on a strip right outside the college, you'll find lots of young ones with big dreams and absolutely lovely coffee drinks.
6. Ugly Mugs
Hey there, East Nashville! Boasting fantastic treats and espresso drinks, Ugly Mugs is great for working as well as the spare free show they throw in during the year.
5. Hot & Cold
An offshoot of Fido, this is where you go if you're looking to side-step the restaurant queue. It's great for a quick treat or a paleta, if you're feeling fancy.
4. Portland Brew
Two locations, one winning company. We're partial to the East Nashville spot (the upstairs! LOVE), but 12 South ain't doin' too bad either.
3. Barista Parlor X Golden Sound
There may be three locations for Barista Parlor, but Golden Sound is our favorite. Located in the Gulch, the outer space + bright vibe is solid.
A dream for those who seek Instagram fame, Steadfast is stunning minimalist space with some solid joe - AND they serve alcohol. What even.
Crema is killer for the hipster in all of us - the perfect blend (ha) of southern hospitality and fantastic coffee. They're our absolute favorite!
