This is basically me inviting you out to coffee.Coffee

I used to kind of have a thing against coffee dates. It’s probably because at the time, I didn’t really like coffee. Maybe it was the fact that it was the standard way to get to know someone here in Nashville. I don’t know. Regardless, I’ve become a coffee date convert. There’s nothing I love better than walking into a coffee shop, trying a new drink, and sitting down for a good long conversation with someone.

Time is abundant. Refills are necessary. It’s a marvelous thing.

I realized that I’ve visited most of the coffee shops within a 5 mile radius of Belmont. But, since I’ve got to have this whole Nashville thing going on, I figured I’d expand my search. In all honesty, I am supposed to be working on a paper, and in the process of deciding which coffee shop to visit I ended up writing this post.

I’m not sorry. I’m also totally down to get coffee with you…just sayin’.

Ugly Mugs. I don’t tend to venture into East Nashville often, but I did just start going to church there, so I may need to make my visits more frequent. This coffee shop features a bunch of local bakeries and I think the name’s adorable.

The Post East. I love the look of this coffee shop. Definitely think I could spend an afternoon working on something big and important here.

Garage Coffee Company. I’m actually surprised that I’ve never visited here before, considering how obsessed I am with Marathon Village. The decor looks fabulous, and they roast their own coffee, so it’s got to be good.

Flatrock Coffee. I’m intrigued by the list of drinks this shop offers…what exactly is The Sock Hop? What about The Hermitage? Either way, this place warrants a visit because it’s also got live music!

Thistle Stop Café. I’ve heard lots about the incredible work of Thistle Farms, but never had the chance to visit their café! Coffee for a cause…that’s something I can get behind.

The Good Cup. This one’s technically in Franklin, but I work there so I also count it as home. This looks like a great place to cozy up and stay awhile.

Headquarters. Another East Nashville destination. I’m really digging the old-school vibe of this one. Plus, they have croissants, and in my opinion, caffeine + croissants = perfect day.

Okay, that’s my list so far. Feel free to comment any of your favorites that I may have missed!

Here’s to good friends, long conversations, and coffee. Always coffee.
