FIVE DAUGHTER'S BAKERY - Officially my favorite Nashville stop. I've been following them on IG for a long time, just waiting for the day to come that I could try their 100 layer doughnuts, and they did not disappoint. They have a location in the 12 South neighborhood, as well as one in an adorable old factory in Franklin, TN!
BARISTA PARLOR - One of those super-hyped coffee spots that I wondered whether it was just a good Instagram spot, or whether they were really worth it. I'm glad to say they are totally worth the stop. They have a couple locations around the city and I spent the morning catching up with a friend at the Golden Sound one. Not only is it beautiful, but the coffee and food are fantastic.
FROTHY MONKEY - A great spot to stop and grab a salad and more coffee after a couple hours wandering Twelve South!
BRADLEY'S CURBSIDE CREAMERY - We were lucky enough to try out this awesome little ice cream truck while they were parked downtown for the 4th. I don't think they have any definite locations, but if you can hunt them down while you're in the city they are definitely worth it!
THE STILLERY - A great place if you're looking for a spot to eat downtown and aren't feeling the honky-tonk bars. We happened to wander in here when looking for somewhere to eat on the 4th and ended up absolutely loving it! Definitely get the baked cheese if you go!
