As we get to know each other, there’s something you must know about me… I am a huge coffee snob. Get that Starbucks crap from me; I need bougie, fair trade local coffee!
That being said, for all things Nashville coffee, I am your girl, and I want to share my wisdom with you!
Starting today, I will be sharing a new review of Nashville Coffee Shop every week to create a NASHVILLE COFFEE GUIDE! Each review will include honest opinions on the coffee shop, recommendations for your order, and any other miscellaneous info you might not find online!
So, without further ado, the first coffee shop of the Created to Create Nashville Coffee Guide is…
HUMPHREYS STREET COFFEE SHOP
424 Humphreys Street
Nashville, TN 37203
Humphreys Street Coffee Shop was born out of the Humphreys Street social enterprise, which sells soap and coffee to ultimately create jobs, provide mentorship opportunities, and teach career skills to students in the South Nashville area (learn more here). HS has been around for a while now, but this coffee shop is the newest I’ve been to in the area, having opened just five months ago in late July.
Humphreys Street has very friendly employees, some of which are students, and a killer menu. My personal favorite coffee drink they have is the Honey Graham Latte, which feels like a warm hug to me. They also have a toast bar, which is fairly pricey, that I’ve heard from friends is amazing.
Aside from the Honey Graham Latte, I love going to Humphreys Street because of how homey it feels. Every time I go, I feel so relaxed and welcome. All I’m thinking about is my warm Honey Graham Latte and my goals and dreams.
Go to Humphreys Street if…
- You want to support a local social enterprise!
- You’re looking for a place that is welcoming enough to have a chat with a friend but serious enough that you could get some work done.
- You don’t want to worry about finding a place to park. HS has tons and tons of street parking.
Don’t go to Humphreys Street if…
- Spending a little extra on your latte bothers you. This is my only complaint. The Honey Graham and other speciality lattes ring out at a hefty $6, compared to the average $4-5 of other shops in the area.
- You want some late night caffeine. Hours are 7-4 on weekdays, and 8-4 on weekends.
I hope this little review was helpful! Let me know in the comments what you think and what your favorite coffee shops are!
