I wish I could give 0 stars. The coffee is overpriced and not good at all. I get better at a Starbucks. The staff are extremely rude and slow. The older African American man that took my order today was horrible. He was inpatient and snobby. I later found out I was it’s last order before it got off of work. (He left as I got my coffee). I assume that was his issue but the poor thing didn’t even hold the door for me on my way out. Just an overall horrible experience. I don’t care to over pay for coffee if the experience is worth it. Sadly, this place was a joke. I do not see it lasting much longer in our neighborhood. Hire people with a charming attitude. Not one of arrogance while working in a coffee shop. Almost as big of a joke as your business. Pathetic.
The Whiskey Caramel Latte is my FAV. I’d also recommend the Lavender latte if you like fruity and light drinks. The poppin mint chocolate is also a must.
Most overrated and overpriced coffee/food spot in Nashville. Out of multiple items and unwilling to work with you to figure out alternatives.
Nice cafe with European decor. Lots of cool looking merch that would make for nice gifts.I went there for the CBD drinks but they ran out. Sad. Their cold brew was still pretty good though. It had a hint of sweetness to it that I haven’t tasted in other cold brews.Overall, great place for your caffeine fix and also to get a little work done.
Back in the day, Barista Parlor was infamous amongst coffee fans in Nashville for its pretentious salesmanship and poor hospitality.I’m elated to say all those issues have been worked out over the years, and they’ve really come into their own, roasting their own beans and slinging one of the top 5 espresso shots you’ll find in the country, all in thoughtfully and artfully designed spaces that are really unmatched in this region. Not to mention, their biscuits rank up high in the Nashville lexicon, which is an achievement!This location is probably my favorite out of the lot just for the interior and location, and the espresso I had ranks up there with shots I’ve had at Onyx in Arkansas and Intelligentsia in Chicago.Can’t wait to come back…or for the business to expand and come down to Texas. Whatever comes first ✌🏼
Amazing coffee. Try to get the guy David to make your drink. It's unreal how much effort gets put into top-end coffee drinks. The bagel sandwiches are great.
Wow, major let down. Hipster vibe and space is cool, staff is very nice, but omg the food is BLEH. The toasted bagel (me) with butter was completely tasteless, the breakfast biscuit (my wife) was absolutely meh, and the vegan breakfast bagel was good (my vegan daughter) but really UGH to me.Coffee was very strong, average taste. Cap was good, mocha was ok.Total bill was $43 - not cheap for breaky!!
I expect a local coffee shop to be MUCH better than ⭐💵🧜♀️ and I like to support small businesses, so I try to patronize them first.Staying in Germantown for the bowl game, Barista Parlor was a short walk away.Underwhelmed.Coffee drinks very small and good luck customizing them to your preference. (The main intent of the visit was coffee and customization or special drinks is where local shops usually shine.)Avocado toast a little different than expected, but had decent flavor.Burrito was good.The motorcycle on display, dragster logo on the counter, and monster truck merch seemed juxtaposed to the otherwise urban hipster vibe in the place. It felt like more effort was put into the atmosphere and merch than selling great coffee.
