    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

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

    Big Bad Hashbrowns will never let you down. Add ham to them and you'll never look back. Also, don't dwell on it if your barista is rude. No one cares.

    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.

    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.

    Staff is unfriendly and borderline ride. If it want across the street from Belmont I'd avoid at all costs.

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

    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 :)
