This past Summer, I had the amazing opportunity to spend three weeks in Nashville and while I was there I went on a coffee extravaganza adventure were I visited many different local coffee shops! Here are my top seven recommendations, enjoy!
1. Frothy Monkey
If you enjoy going on coffee dates with friends, relaxed environments, and delicious coffee and pastries then Frothy Monkey is the place for you. With multiple locations in and around Downtown Nashville, the Frothy Monkey is home to locals and tourists alike. Frothy Monkey offers the most delicious locally roasted coffee that you must try if you are in the area. If you ever got a chance to swing by, ‘the hummingbird’ is my number one recommendation!
2. Sump Coffee
Located in the fun and trendy ONEcity area of West-end Nashville, Sump is THE best place for flavorful artisan brews. Personally, Sump is my favorite place for a good basic cup of black drip coffee. There is an amazing seating area outside where you could easily meet with a large group of friends for a meeting, book club, or just a plain get together.
3. Milk and Honey
Talk about a cup of coffee! Milk and Honey definitely has one of the most “instagram-able” coffees you will find in Nashville. Not only does the coffee at Milk and Honey deliver, but the brunch is also amazing! It is located right in the center of The Gulch and is in a really fun area with tons of murals and photo opportunities (such as the famous Nashville wings).
4. Blue Stripes Coffee
Right down the block from Milk and Honey is the deliciously chocolatey Blue Stripes! Using Cacao in most everything they make, Blue stripes has great coffee and SO MANY TREATS! Just to name a few menu items: the Nutella latte, Sugar Crystal Waffles, Chocolate Kreamz, Lemony donuts fondue, and even Chocolate Pizza!
5. White Bison
I cannot tell you how many late night visits I made to White Bison while in Nashville. White Bison is chain restaurant with various locations in and around the Nashville area. It is definitely my go to afternoon cup of coffee because it is so convenient and quick and the taste of the coffee is definitely top notch!
