The Best Coffee Shops In Nashville

 In Nashville

In the US and many countries worldwide, a cup of coffee is the perfect addition or start to your day. The majority of the adult population in the US drinks at least one cup of coffee, varying in what version of the drink it is. 

Coffee comes in various options ranging from regular caffeinated coffee to cappuccino, espresso, mocha, and latte, to name a few. Whether with or without milk, sugarless or added sugar, there is something for all age groups and tastes.

If you’re considering visiting Nashville for the first time or you’re a native and want to experience the best the city offers, we’ve put together a list of the best Nashville coffee shops where you can get your fix.

Here are a few of our favorite local coffee shops:


This well-known Hillsboro Village coffee shop opened in 1996 as a coffee-roasting cafe emphasizing totally on coffee. Years later, coffee roasting moved to East Nashville, and food slowly became the focus. With a full coffee bar offering organic beans from its sister company, Bongo Java, Fido has since been named the Best Place for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner by the Nashville Scene due to its all-day menu, which, aside from coffee, features local produce, cheese, dairy, and meats.

Ugly Mugs

A family owned and run coffee roaster, they have perfected their craft over three generations and serve only the finest flavored coffee. They are dedicated to coffee and use only the perfect beans sourced from local farms. The beans are carefully crafted to extract delicate and rare flavors, making every sip an experience.

Frothy Monkey

The Frothy Monkey has been around since 2004 and is an all-day cafe, specialty coffee roaster, coffee shop and wholesale bakery. Aside from their specialty coffee and professional coffee service, all their food is prepared from scratch using original recipes and made with the finest ingredients from local Nashville farms. With a kid’s menu to boot, Frothy Monkey is the place to go if you’re looking for an all-rounded coffee shop.

The Well Coffeehouse

The Well coffeehouse does more than just serve great coffee and meals. Staffed by volunteers and as a way of giving back, proceeds from every cup of coffee aides in the creation of sustainable water solutions for the countries where they source their coffee beans. So with every cup, you’re not just drinking some of the best coffee in Nashville but giving back to communities in need.


Art is all around us, and at Dose, they are all about the art of preparation. They serve a lightly roasted coffee, methodically prepared and treated with care to release its unique flavor notes and nuances for extraction. Their coffee tells a story from farm to roaster to the barista and finally to a cup with the highest customer service. But that’s not all; choose from a variety of their made-from-scratch, baked treats freshly made every morning at their bakery. Offering gluten-free and vegan baked goods as well as your regular pastries, everyone will feel welcome.


While known for being one of the best coffee shops in Nashville, the coffee served at Crema is made with the utmost consideration for the environment and its carbon footprint. As a carbon-neutral, zero-waste roaster, you get to choose from a select variety of curated blends of coffee to suit your tastes.
