1. Frothy Monkey: this place has my heart.
*my favorites: the golden milk latte (hot or iced) w/ a shot of espresso and an iced oatmilk latte with Tennessee honey
*they have a full menu as well, and while I have heard it is amazing, i normally sneak over to Two Daughters Bakery for a maple 100-layer donut w/ my coffee if I am @ the 12 South location (:
2. Three Brothers Coffee: the best study spot.
*a cozy little corner that is best for studying on a rainy afternoon or a sunny day when they pull open the garage doors at the front
*my usual: iced oatmilk latte w/ honey
3. Poindexter Coffee: the dreamiest coffee-shop-meets-hotel-lobby
*my jaw touches the floor every time I walk in the Graduate Hotel lobby even though I already know what to expect
*the drink that I dream about: almond milk cuban (a bit lighter on sugar is my preference)
*this place gets a bit crowded on the weekends with photoshoots galore of everyone trying to capture all the prettiness but still one of my favorite places in the week to crank out some work
4. White Bison Coffee: sunshine patio goodness
*not a “coffee shop” in the sense that there is no indoor seating at the location in 12 south but has two sunny, covered patios that make it the best place to spend a morning or afternoon
*ordered a delicious oatmilk vanilla latte
5. Starbucks: a convenient classic
*I could not do a little guide to coffee without including Starbucks
*I used to avoid it, but it has recently won my heart back w/ its convenience and closeness to campus
*recs: iced vanilla sweet cream cold brew w/ light cream and add vanilla cream cold foam,
healthy-ish pumpkin spice latte w/ almond instead of whole milk and 1/2 the amount of syrup, grande pike w/ one splenda and half-n-half

5. Walking: the best way to enjoy Nashville’s weather

*i dream about the RH store in Nashville and would move in if I thought I could get away with it
*the best eye candy for an afternoon of walking through 4 floors of beauty with a coffee in hand from their cafe or a full belly from a yummy lunch @ the restaurant on the main floor
*go here; you will NOT regret it (+ it is right outside GreenHills mall if you are not shopped out afterwards)
8. Grand Ole Opry + all things Live Music: Nashville’s best !
*I could not give a guide on Nashville must-do’s without talking about live music !
*the Grand Ole Opry might be the most well known, but it is not the only place to discover the heart of country
*my personal favorite place to listen to music is the Listening Room where you have to reserve tickets online, but Broadway is always an option for 24/7 music without pre-planning !
