Demonbreun Street. The street’s pronunciation is a conversation for another day, but one thing is for certain: There’s no shortage of coffee along this 1.2-mile stretch between Music Row and the Cumberland River.

Without further a-brew, let’s get to know six coffee shops located on the well-traveled route.

Just Love Music Row, 1528 Demonbreun St.

  • Just Love has been brewing in the neighborhood since 2015. The coffee shop’s exposed brick interior offers cozy vibes and serves as the backdrop for occasional live music. Try This: The signature Cha-Cha drink (dark chocolate, hazelnut, and amaretto).

Tin Cup Coffee Co., 1201 Demonbreun St. Ste. 100

  • Located around the corner from E+Rose, this spot goes beyond coffee with a variety of breakfast and lunch offerings like frittatas, egg and cheddar biscuits, and sandwiches.

Stompin’ Grounds Market, 201 8th Ave. S.

  • Bypass the hotel lobby and opt for the entrance off Demonbreun Street, where you can order a hot cup of joe, cold brew, and a variety of breakfast pastries from the Stompin’ Grounds counter.
