Yeast Nashville can cure any hangover. Isn’t that the key to a killer breakfast and brunch place? Bready, cheesey, savory, and sweet – if you need it, they have it! But we will say, the early bird get’s the worm: their specialty, kolaches, sell out fast! What’s a kolache? Heaven. Think of a danish but made with a sweet, yeasty bread instead of pastry dough. Kolaches can be filled with anything your heart desires. Yeast Nashville makes a wide variety – from blueberry and cream cheese to sausage links with cheese.
Noshville has been one of our go-tos since our college days. While we’re sad the Midtown location closed, we’re willing to make the drive to Green Hills for our Noshville-fix.

But, if breakfast isn’t your thing, Noshville is still a sure bet.

Inside, you’ll be greeted by a counter full of fresh fish, cream cheeses, and salads. If it’s your first visit, definitely order a bagel – whether you pair it with cream cheese, flavored butter, or an egg sandwich option, the bagels are seriously impressive.
At Tower Market and Deli, Bagel Face, DOH Nashville, and Bongo Java are just a few of the local businesses that that stock its shelves.
