    Coffee is an art here--- the lines are extremely long. It helps to know the menu in advance as it's only available at the front counter (not posted).

    killer macchiato

    Maybe an espresso pulled with hipsterly finesse by a barista too cool to look you in the eye, or maybe a Japanese cold brew (Try it. Seriously). The coffee’s worth the wait. The food’s worth avoiding. Read more

    Waited forever and my order was wrong. And... about $7 for a small almond milk vanilla latte 😧

    Beautiful space but expensive. My shot was pulled just ok.

    Your typical hipster coffee shop. Loved the coffee and building. My favorite coffee stop during my Nashville trip.
  • Nick M.
    Goood coffee, good interiors and some nice bikes on display.
  • Sandrene M.
    Takes great care to have the best roast and best brewing methods, but doesn't serve many of the alternative drinks popular at most other coffee shops and will tell you with a side of arrogance.
  • Ranu R.
    This space is stunning and I love the old bikes they have on display. If their Vietnamese iced coffee is a special, get it. Food menu looks really solid too. One of my fave coffee shops ever.

    My favorite afternoon coffee when visiting Nashville. Don't be afraid to experiment but don't expect it to be your typical morning coffee. Ask for recommendations if you hesitate.

    They can do most of their single origins as an iced pour over, perfect for the hot summers. The bourbon vanilla doesn't actually have alcohol, but is mellow and refreshing.

    Good but slow. In Brooklyn, where we manage to serve the same roasts with the same amount of care in a fraction of the time, Barista Parlor would be out of business before finishing a single pourover.

    Everyone talks about how hipster-y pinewood social is but THIS place is the worst. At least pinewood has many redeeming qualities. Why do people go here? Long wait, inferior product, huge cost.

    The Moto biscuit is stellar. I had sausage and my friend had the bacon and we both loved it. The biscuit itself is easily one of the top 5 biscuits I've had in my life. I'd come back here!
