Caffeinated and Cool
Before you begin sightseeing, start your day with Nashville’s best coffee. Located in West Nashville, Headquarters is a slim space with a sweet history: they’ve kept the 1800s signage on their brick wall, giving the nine-foot-wide shop a vintage feel. If you want local beans, gluten-free pastries, or a matcha latte, they’ve got you covered. Situated in a hip industrial building, CREMA prides themselves on their DIY approach—the owners carved their own bar and roast their own beans. Finally, the cozy 8th & Roast serves up sandwiches alongside a variety of coffees. If you’re a real connoisseur, try the slow bar. If you’re all about the mocha, they make their syrups in house.
