Nashville: Barista Parlor

Remodeled in old garage repair-shop, Barista Parlor is Nashville’s darling when it comes to coffee. The blue and orange exterior with a horizontal anchor is its signature mark, but inside customers will find a café furnished with modern and traditional trappings. Owner Andy Mumma prides himself on his democratic approach to selecting his beans – whether it’s from North Carolina’s Counter Culture, Michigan’s MadCap, or Los Angeles’s Sightglass. There is no soy or milk available for a frothy latte or cappuccino, placing Barista Parlor next to other coffee purists like Four Barrel’s Jeremy Tooker.
