Ah, Dunn Brothers, I think I may have spent $500 here this summer. Dunn Bros. is everything that I need in a coffee shop. It has great food, great coffee, and an easy going vibe. It’s not too corporate, but you’re also not being served out of a plastic dixie cup. They have an amazing blend called “Infinite Black,” which is like double-strength and perfect for that first (or fifth) cup in the morning.
Think local Starbucks. None of the baristas have abnormal piercings or tattoos.
Bacon. Egg. Cheese. Biscuit. Sausage. Egg. Cheese. Biscuit. Also, an awesome fruit cup that isn’t entirely made out of melon. Plus your typical assortment of pastries and yogurt.
Excellent. Unique flavor. Strong, but not overpowering. They have all of the milk varieties you could want.
If you’re looking for a solid coffee shop in downtown Nashville, look no further than Dunn Bros. None of the hippy pretentious of other local shops, but all of the delicious, craft-roasted coffee.
I drink a lot of (Iced) coffee. It’s a whole category of my budget. I’ve got Starbucks Gold Status until 2016. So, I thought I’d start writing about my experiences in coffee drinking around Nashville, Washington, DC, and the world.
The first stop on our coffee tour, only because it’s where I went to today, is Headquarters Coffee on Charlotte Ave. They can be found at:
4902 Charlotte Pike, Nashville, TN 37209 (615) 386-6757
Reminded me of Sidamo on H Street in DC (review to come). Eclectic music, jewelry for sale, reclaimed hardwood everywhere.
They had your typical selection of artisan coffee and espresso beverages available. I was happy to see iced coffee on the menu. Prices slightly higher than Starbucks, but much lower than Barista Parlour. A 20oz Iced Coffee was $4.00 on the menu, but mine was only $3.00.
Vegan cakes, cookies, and other desserts were available. They also carried an assortment of bottled kombucha and iced coffee.
Iced Coffee has a mild acidic flavor. Nothing overpowering. Maybe floral? They only had almond milk and half & half available in the cooler, so that may color my judgment of the taste.
I’ll probably go back. It’s on my way to/from work. Street Parking is available and it’s right next to one of my new breakfast favorites, Porter Road Butcher.
