Three Brothers Coffee

Coffee House
One of the best

As I walked through the pushing-100-degrees heat in Nashville, even the most mediocre iced coffee would have sufficed to cool me down; however, as luck would have it, I ended up at Three Brothers Coffee and much more than a cold drink to make my day. Its incorporation of outdoorsy vibes, Tennessean pride, classic college coffeehouse looks, and, not least, good coffee make it a memorable experience.

Three Brothers is adjacent to Cumberland Transit, an outdoors store, and the connection is apparent in the recycled bicycles that have become coffee house decor. An old, high-wheel bicycle hangs from the ceiling, echoing the logo at the front of the store.

The food is just as excellent as, if not better than, the interior design. Iced latte is smooth, rich, and refreshing. Espresso, currently a blend from Bongo Java in Nashville, may even be better in a hot latte given its warm undertones, but as an iced latte it it an incredible drink: the best iced coffee I’ve had in recent memory. Its flavor, milk-to-espresso ratio, and the way the iced coffee somehow conveys warmth make me a believer.

An accompanying scone is tastefully flavored, with lavender present but not overpowering. A great pairing with afternoon coffee.

As well as coffee and pastries, Three Brothers serves breakfast.

Notes: large seating area in cafe, good place to sit down with a coffee and get work done. Wifi available. Open 7 days a week.
