    Best coffee shop in Nashville. Amazing staff, great atmosphere and phenomenal speciality drinks. On a hot day try the coffee soda, you won't regret it!

    My favorite coffee spot on the outskirts of the downtown strip, brewing their own delicious locally-roasted beans (the new coffee soda will knock your socks off). Grab a seat on the cozy front porch. Read more

    This is the best cup of coffee in Nashville in my opinion and right in the middle of downtown! It's located on 1st Avenue and easy to walk to. Try the Cuban with a French Macaron on the side.

    Stopped in for a quick bite and some people watching while out sight seeing. At the recommendation of others I had the Cuban. It was delicious and even came complete with cool latte art.

    By far my favorite coffee shop in Nashville. The coffee is roasted there. The drip El Salvador was amazing. Such a fun atmosphere. Good blueberry muffins.

    Mmmmm. Best coffee I had in my short stay. Great espresso drinks and drip coffees (a very wide selection of them too!). The decor was very very nice, and the baristas were very friendly

    The Cuban is my favorite drink! Crema is by far my favorite coffee shop in Nashville. The staff is awesome and the patio is perfect on a beautiful day. Also, try the coffee soda! So good!

    Great espresso blend. Solid. Great with or without milk. Their other choices for pour overs and cold brews are great too. Nice to see a zero waste bin. Very chatty staff

    This cozy coffee stop serves only ethically sourced beans which they roast in house. Honestly speaking, they had us at Bourbon Barrel Sorghum Latte. You can catch them at Pinewood Social.

    Delicious coffees and muffins. If you like a flat white and fancy something a little sweet, the Cuban is just wonderful (espresso, foamed milk, sweetened condensed milk).

    Liked the coffee and the ambiance, however it's far from the centre if you didnt rent a car. There will be a next time to try avocado spread.

    The Cuban is not to be missed. If your a traditionalist, treat yourself to an espresso. They do it right. This is one of the best coffee shops, period.

    Delicious light to medium roasted coffee. The outdoor seating is wonderful on a sunny day. Highly recommended!

    Comes pretty close to the coffee shops of Seattle. People, atmosphere, and coffee knowledge. If only now they could stay open longer / all night like Seattle. I presume the demand just isn't the same.

    Probably my favorite coffee shop I've ever been to. And that's including cities like Boston, Philly, DC and small towns across New England. Bravo to a team of true coffee professionals.

    If you love coffee, this is your spot in Nashville. Sit at the espresso bar and get the barrista's recommendations. Great espresso and pour overs.

    Can't go wrong with a coffee soda or a Cuban. Their blueberry muffins and avocado toast are heavenly.

    The breakfast quinoa is to die for! I like it warm, with a drizzle of half and half.

    The Cuban is a can't miss. Also try out their quiches. Three cheese is more traditional - try the goat cheese and Swiss chard for an adventure.

    Zenzero is amazing: ginger + maple reduction latte. I asked for half sweet with the maple since I don’t like my coffee too sweet.

    Cortado is beautifully made, muesli is sweet but not overly sweet. Everything is made with care and concern.

    Bathroom Tips: 1. The light is tied to a motion detector. If the lights die on you mid-business, DO NOT FRET. Shake a crazy leg and continue. 2. There's a secret second bathroom in the corner.

    It's the summer which means you have to try the coffee soda. Behind the iced Cuban it's the best drink here.

    First visit to Crema was unsuccessful. Place was packed to the brim and wasn't able to get a table to sit and work. Going to try again soon.

    Coffee sodas sound weird but will blow your mind. Think coffee cocktail. Get one if they're on the menu.

    Yummy quiche, coffee was just ok. Plenty of seating and a short walk from downtown to escape the tourists.
