“Ugly Mugs offers full-service coffee selections and a breakfast/lunch menu. It may be difficult to accommodate a large group (8+) for seating as it is the local favorite for remote workers but it is a perfect destination to get coffees/teas to go. Located in the Eastland Neighbors section of East Nashville, close to Jeni's Ice Cream, Five Daughters Bakery, RosePepper Mexican Cantina, and Two Ten Jack Izakaya and Ramen House.”

“Skip dessert at the restaurant and head here for a delicious finish. The owners source the beans from their own Costa Rican estate. All organic. All handmade on site. Fab! ”

“If you drive through Hillsboro Village on the weekends (and sometimes on the weekdays) you’ll see a line of people wrapped around the building on the corner of 21st Ave S and Blakemore. This is the line for pancake pantry. There’s a reason people stand in line for this place. The sweet potato pancakes are my favorite (so so good) but all the pancakes are perfection. If you want to try it out, I suggest a late arrival (They close at 3:00, so maybe around 1:30) or a weekday visit to minimize wait times. Their only downfall is that the coffee sucks. You’ve been warned.”
