The Gulch & Downtown

  1. Crema Coffee – Downtown 

Order: Iced latte

Average Price: $

Perks: The outdoor patio that overlooks downtown is perfect on warm, sunny afternoons. I maintain that they have the best iced latte in Nashville.

Caught My Eye: Coffee roasting done in back. Also features Dozen Bakery goods. Wreath on the door and vases of flowers on the tables.

Also Try: Chai latte – spicy, with hints of ginger and clove

  1. Biscuit Love – The Gulch 

Order:  Biscuit + Jam

Average Price: $$

Perks: Fluffy biscuits and gravy are a known Southern staple, and Biscuit Love serves them up beautifully. Transitioning from the popular Biscuit Love Truck, the restaurant now offers ample indoor and outdoor seating, and a great little bar area.

Caught My Eye: Brunch cocktail menu. Craft beers are also offered in the later afternoon.

Also Try: Fried Chicken and Biscuits

  1. Burger Republic – The Gulch 

Order: The Hawaiian Burger and tater tots

Average Price: $$

Perks:  In my opinion, the Hawaiian Burger is one of the most amazing burgers in Nashville. Pineapple on burgers is way underrated, and I have Burger Republic to thank for introducing me to Teriyaki Sauce and Pineapple in a burger – top-notch. Sometimes the line can get kind of long, especially on the weekends, but I think it’s worth the wait. Go in and put your name down, then cross over the street to have a drink at the pub while you wait.

Caught My Eye: Big-screen TV’s showing games, red and white décor, the long bar area and outdoor eating area overlooking The Gulch.

Also Try: Jack Daniel’s Ketchup on any of the burgers

  1. Hops + Crafts

Features: Over 36 beers, focusing on Tennessee local beer

  1. Yazoo Brewing Company

Features: Brewery tours on Saturdays

  1. Acme Feed + Seed

Features: Live music on the bottom floor, a cozy sitting area on the middle floor, and a rooftop bar. Order the Mule Kicker and wander between floors.
