If we were forced to choose our all time favorite coffee shop in Nashville, Crema might win the bid. Crema is located in SoBro (with a small location in Pinewood Social, as well), but their coffee can be found throughout the city in locations including the Turnip Truck and Dozen Bakery. Crema has a delightfully laid back atmosphere that’s perfect for a meeting or just a casual coffee with friends. They also have a decent-sized patio so you can enjoy your coffee outdoors in the nicer months. We recommend their Cuban latte with a side of avocado toast.
This little shop is located directly next to Jackalope Brewery. It’s can be easily overlooked but if you’ve never been there, you need to take a coffee break ASAP and get moving. They have a great selection of drip and pour over coffees, iced coffees, and a nice menu of pastries and breakfast paninis.
