Crema - A Coffee Brewtique

Crema - A Coffee Brewtique

This coffee Brewtique located close to downtown Nashville in the Rutledge Hill neighborhood was once a little diesel engine repair shop but, has since become a go-to place for coffee lovers in Nashville. 

 Crema is owner-operated and prides itself on employing who they call "ninja-like barista's" who know everything there is to know about brewing and coffee, espresso, mocha's and anything else you can imagine being served in a coffee "brewtique".

Enjoy these pics from my recent visit!

Olive & Sinclair Chocolate is available for sale

These cute flowers in the mason jar adds such flair to this ambiance

Sacks of coffee

Vanilla Almond Granola

Crema also offers monthly classes to learn more about new coffee perspectives

You can visit Crema on Twitter, Facebook and at their website at www.crema-coffee.com

Saturday afternoon Prescription for Relaxation @ Dose Coffee & Tea

A Saturday Afternoon Prescription for Relaxation @ Dose Coffee & Tea

I experienced a Dose of Relaxation a couple of Saturday's ago at Dose Coffee & Tea in Nashville. Dose specializes in coffee, tea and chocolate. The interior decor is inviting and quaint with hardwood tables and desk lamps that line the tables near the windows.

If you want a dose of goodness to take home with you, you can purchase coffee and tea from this coffee house as well.

A Variety of Tea for sale...

Coffee for sale too......

My latte was sweet - just as I like it! It was fit for Autumn with the leaf design fashioned in the foam

The Turkey & Brie Sandwich was awesome! Turkey, Brie, Caramelized onions and a spicy remoulade sauce on a brioche bun.

Dose Coffee & Tea is now on my rotating list of favorite coffee shops in Nashville!

Night Market @ The Nashville Farmers Market

Night Market @ The Nashville Farmers Market

During the warmer Summer and Fall months, The Nashville Farmers Market has a monthly "Night Market". The market stays open past the regular hours and there is plenty of food and fun! They have a couple of bands come in to entertain the crowds. There are also a few Food Trucks lined up in addition to the everyday Farmer's Market Restaurants. Check out pics from my night at the Nashville Farmer's Market below.......
