Once you've eaten one of my scrumptious breakfasts, you will of course be expecting only the best here in Nashville for lunch and dinner. Below are some of my favorites.

Sky Blue Coffee Shop
A neighborhood favorite just a few doors down from mine, this is a great place for lunch, or an afternoon snack and coffee/tea.

Sambuca Restaurant
This is one of my all time favorites. Downtown in "the Gulch" area, featuring terrific food, great atmosphere and great dinner music. You can stay all night, or walk across the street to The Station Inn for amazing bluegrass or Texas swing music.

Not a coffee house - it's the coffee I serve here at the B&B - the best I've found anywhere and Drew is a local guy.

Andy Allen
If you are thinking about a move to Nashville, of course while you house hunt, you'll want to stay at the best B&B (remember extended stay rates are available), but you should be working with the top Realtor in town, Andy Allen. With close to 30 years experience, he has found homes for many of my guests who were looking (and some who were not!).

Right down the street from The Big Bungalow on Fatherland St., Kali Yuga Yoga has classes all day for all levels, led by incredible teachers. This is my favorite yoga studio.
