Food Scene
Sweet 16th is an East Nashville treasure. Everything Ellen, Dan & the bakery crew offer is someone's favorite. Don't miss the breakfast sandwich. The cheese danish is exceptional, but usually found on the weekends. Follow your gut and order what you want, you will not be disappointed by anything on the menu. If it's peach season, order something that highlights the "Peach Truck" peaches, they are only available when perfect. Get "coffee crack" in your cup of joe instead of sugar. And don't ignore the soups.. If you come to the bakery, consider yourself a neighbor. If you are at our place, WALK 2 blocks SW. Open T-F 7am-2pm Sat 8am-1pm.

Carniceria San Luis is a butcher shop with some killer foods you can grab on the go. Inside the storefront, order the Hamburger Stilo Monterrey (huge hamburger, with ham, avocado, jalapeños on the side) or the tamales, which are massive and wrapped in banana leaf. Don't forget an horchata. Outside, the south corner of the building has a walk up window for tacos. I believe they are the best authentic Mexican tacos in town. The green sauce is a highlight, perfect mix of spice and flavor.

When near Bicentennial Mall and the Nashville Farmers' Market, here are our recommendations for some great dishes/items to sample a taste of local Nashville food: Swagruha Indian has the best Mango Lassi in town, start or end there. Bella Nashville makes a great pizza, and on Friday's they have the best crusty Italian style bread by the loaf in Nashville. B&C Market BBQ is worth a visit if Southern BBQ is on your mind. You can never go wrong with Jeni's Ice Cream (sample as many flavors as you like). Sloco offers excellent sustainably sourced sandwiches. Stuff yourself, then go for a walk in the park. If it's summer, check out the spray fountains near the train trestle.

Just around the corner from vegetarian powerhouse Wild Cow, Graze is another spin on plant based fare created by the owners of the Wild Cow.

Now you are faced with a decision, which one do you choose? You can't go wrong either way. If you are staying at our place, WALK NE (be careful crossing Eastland Ave)

John Seigenthaler was a Nashville icon. I had the pleasure to work with him occasionally and hear stories from his rich life as a journalist and civil rights activist. Fitting that the city named this beautiful pedestrian bridge in his honor. John Seigethaler was a champion for free speech, first amendment rights and an avid lover of books and reading. Walk the bridge and get the best views of downtown Nashville. Take a book and a lunch and you will be following in John's footsteps.
