10 Best Coffee Shops East of Nashville

Several years ago, it wasn’t unheard of to have to venture out to East Nashville for a handcrafted latte. Smaller communities were lucky if we had a single mom and pop coffee shop, much less locally roasted coffee or healthy companions such as organic ingredients, dairy alternatives, or naturally infused sweeteners. East Nashville may still be known for some of the best coffee in Middle Tennessee, but the suburbs have come a long way and it’s no longer necessary to fight traffic (and if you’re lucky, find parking) just to find a great coffee shop.

Here are our 10 favorite coffee shops east of the city:


1. Caliber Coffee Co., 2513 Lebanon Pike, Nashville, TN 37214

2. The Bowtie Barista, 2709 Lebanon Pike, Nashville, TN 37214

3. The Café at Nectar Urban Cantina, 206 McGavock Pike, Nashville, TN 37214


4. Sips, 4130 Lebanon Pike, Hermitage, TN 37076

Old Hickory

5. Nyumbarista1053 Donelson Avenue, Old Hickory, TN 37138

Mt. Juliet

6. Lasaters Coffee & Tea, 1400 N. Mt. Juliet Rd. #100, Mt. Juliet, TN 37122

7. Billy Goat Coffee Café, 3690 N. Mt. Juliet Rd., Mt. Juliet, TN 37122


8. Pop’s Coffee Shop, 517 West Main Street, Lebanon, TN 37087

9. Body Kneads Coffee Co., 1050 Hamilton Station Blvd., Lebanon, TN 37087

10. Split Bean Roasting Co., 110A East Main Street, Lebanon, TN 37087

Looking for a great meal and great coffee?  Nadeen’s Hermitage Haven isn’t a coffee shop, but they serve delicious Frothy Monkey coffee and excellent food!

And if you’re already in East Nashville or heading that way for perhaps, a little shopping, a few of our favorite coffee shops to visit there are Portland Brew, Post East, Barista Parlor, and Slow Hand Coffee + Bakeshop.

Our business runs on coffee and referrals.

We love catching up with old friends and new ones over coffee to talk business or just talk about life. Let us know when you’ve got some time to share some stories over coffee! There’s nothing more life-giving than a great conversation between friends.

If you know someone looking to buy or sell real estate in Middle Tennessee, we would love the opportunity to earn their business, and if you know someone looking to buy or sell outside of Middle Tennessee we are always happy to connect your friends and family with another qualified Realtor in our network.

About the Author

My wife and I live in Donelson, where we both were raised and graduated from high school (DCA Classes of 1983 and 1984).  Our current home is on the Cumberland River, very close to my childhood home and the former homes of both my McDonald and Rice grandparents.

Our daughter and son are grown now, and our daughter, Stephanie Miller, is my real estate partner.  She lives in Lebanon with her husband and their two children.  While Stephanie and I specialize in the areas of Downtown Nashville, Donelson, Hermitage, Old Hickory, Mt. Juliet and Lebanon, we have and do serve clients all over Middle Tennessee.

As a Nashville native, I’ve spent a lifetime watching our city evolve, and I am enthusiastic about showcasing it to others and serving their real estate needs.
