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, 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.
Neighbors Café, 710 Demonbreun St. (inside 1 Hotel Nashville)
  • Level up your coffee run by ordering a blueberry or s’mores muffin, quiche made with Gifford’s Bacon, or the vegan breakfast sandwich. Try This: Hive Latte made with pistachio milk, sea salt, cinnamon, and honey.
