    The “basic” breakfast can’t be beat: $5 for eggs, hash browns, toast and a cup of joe. If you’re there during school season – beware – as it will be brimming with college students. Read more

    The pastries here are all amazing! In terms of meals the Bongo Basic is the go-to for me. Really cheap for a ton of great tasting food. For coffee, I recommend the Mocha or a Mochahontas.

    You can go there and meet some really artistic folks and get a great cup of coffee and good food. They have an upstairs theater where a lot of improv groups perform. Read more

    Fist-time visiting. Saw this place profiled on Food Network. Had the salmon plate and a "McBowl" specialty coffee. Fantastic!

    Beautiful view from porch even on a dark evening. Husband ordered a drink that hasn't been on the menu for years and they remembered!

    Can't go wrong with a bongo basic! Only $5.65 (that's including tax) for two eggs, hashbrowns, two pieces of toast, and a cup of coffee :)

    I've had some nice baristas! And the coffee is worth it anyway :) The Mochahontas is yummy. Wish everyone didn't smoke on the front porch though.

    Wi-Fi password is "bongojavaguest". Not the most reliable connection though. Can get unusably slow at times. Decent number of outlets available. Coffee refills are $1.

    Bongo's porch is one of the best in Nashville and the espresso drinks are awesome. Also if you're not into parallel parking, don't forget about the gravel lot in the back (entrance behind Circle K.) Read more

    Great environment to hang out, chill on the porch, and the hot chocolate is amazing.

    The coffee is pretty expensive, the the coffee isn't my personal preference. I've tried many coffee items but none are as good as Sam & Zoe's in my opinion

    If you are a coffee fan, it's great! If you like specialty drinks, the apple pie is AMAZING and I have heard the McBowl is good too.

    Breve is creamy, while the McBowl has great aroma and the right amount of swtness.

    You can use their free wifi for two hours--then they cut you off. Plan accordingly.

    Soooo wish they'd at least make either the top of the porch or bottom SMOKE FREE. #mercy #needtobreath

    If you hear a group of people talking about touring, just go talk to them. They are most likely in a band on tour, and could possibly be big! Robert Plant and Jack White are semi-regulars.

    Problem is, they don't open til late - around 7:30 am, I think. And the staff is nowhere near as friendly ac Starbucks.

    Past the baristas follow the steps up to the right. There's a roomy table perfect for working if no one is there.

    try the Mexican mocha, it has a touch of cayenne which amps up the chocolatey-yumminess!!
