A few months back we went on a six day visit to Nashville, Tennessee for a girl’s trip! We had always wanted to go to Nashville to eat amazing food, try out their cool coffee shops, and of course… hear some live music! When we discovered that we had a Greyhound Road Reward to take a free bus ANYWHERE, we wanted to get the best value and chose Music City! With all the public transportation and crazy long commutes we’ve done in the past, we knew we could handle the 24 hour bus ride. After several transfers, sitting in bus terminals, and long naps — we arrived!
We started our Nashville visit with caffeine and food of course! Straight from the bus terminal we walked to CREMA, a really cool cafe and artisanal coffee roaster that we heard amazing reviews of! We each got an iced chai latte, and they were amazing! They were pretty spicy which I really enjoyed, and unlike the normal chais I’ve had in the past. Since being home, I’ve found myself craving one of these again but can’t find a place that makes them the same!
We also got some toasts! I got an Avo Toast with goat cheese and an arugula mix and Tara got their Winter Fruit Tartine which had spiced apples and pears, yogurt, and was sprinkled with pistachios! We ended up basically splitting them to get the perfect sweet and salty combo! We loved all of the seating they had, and chose to sit outside on their front porch for the perfect breakfast al fresco!
After breakfast and meeting up with the rest of the girls, we headed to our Airbnb and got ready to explore East Nashville for the rest of the day! We’ll be talking about all the fun stuff (AND GREAT FOOD) that makes up East Nashville in our next post, so make sure to keep checking back to hear more about our trip!
