My partner and I got breakfast here and it was super delicious! I got the eggs benedict (subbed vegetarian sausage for the meat), and my boyfriend got the breakfast burrito (sub vegetarian sausage for meat). We also got frappes, which were pretty decent. The food was very good and we appreciated having convenient substitutes. We also split one of their... More

Cute little place, family style seating. The eating area isn't huge, so I could see a wait being possible, but it would be worth it. Bf had the omelet, I had the egg/tomato on bread. So good. Potatoes were a hit as well!

Excellent breakfast! A bit of wait but it was worth it! We all had great meals. The potatoes were as good as I have ever had!!! Not too pricey either!

This quaint, little humble coffee/cafe is located in a residential area of East Nashville. This makes parking a little inconvenient if driving an oversized vehicle. It has a tiny dining area and picnic benches for outdoors. The wait is worth the WAIT!! The food will make one forget how long you waited and they serve complimentary coffee to the waiting... More

Rather 3.5. After seeing all the good reviews we couldn't help but thinking that's THE place to brunch! Well, even though they definitely have good stuff, it isn't as good as we expected, especially when the check comes! A bit overrated as far as I'm concerned.

We stopped by the Sky Blue Cafe for breakfast when we were in Nashville, and we're not disappointed. Hostess told us it would be 90 minutes to be seated, so we poured a cup of coffee from the Bunn set up outside, and parked it out in the sun. They got us inside in closer to 45 minutes and it...

We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning and even arriving at 9:30 I knew that our wait would be long but had no idea an hour and a half! It was well worth the wait! The food was amazing, the coffee was fresh brewed and hot and the atmosphere was inviting and cozy!!!

Came here for brunch with girlfriends, the wait was well worth it. We paid reasonable prices for great mimosas and bloody Mary's. We tried and loved Lo's bowl, Em's bowl, and a breakfast sandwich.

My husband found recommendations for the Sky Blue Cafe on line & so we programmed it into our WAZE to try it for breakfast! It sits on a corner in a little neighborhood , but does it draw customers & the food is fabulous! Because it is small, customers were waiting outside to be seated, but there are picnic tables...
