Just love the unusual coffee they serve! Food is good too but I just have to have a coffee when in town visiting my so. At Belmont. This trip I enjoyed the Wascally Wabbit. So delish! If they have a "grey skies" coffee or tea isn't a must have!!

Contrary to the coffee-centric name, Bongo Java is actually a bagel cafe and it is a VERY good one. On a recent trip to Nashville I experienced eating there several times, as it was located across the street from my air bnb place. I'm so glad I found it! The place is a order-at-the-counter shop where patrons take away their... More

Breakfast for 3 was over $30, but the portions are big. I could have easily split the special with my husband. Nice to sit outside and people watch.

I stayed at a nearby Airbnb and woke up needed some good coffee. I walked outside and backtracked from the stream of college students I saw with to go cups. Coffee was great. I really like the outdoor seating area.

Having been to Java Bongo many times in many visits to Music City, I had to return to see if it was as good as I remembered. It wasn't, it was even better. The dining area has expanded, the breakfasts were freshly made. The oatmeal was outstanding. Try Steve's bfst sandwich. You won't be disappointed. Will return anytime I am... More

This is a great place for a quick casual breakfast and great coffee. Menu is limited but enough variety to find what you want and everything I have had has been enjoyable...love the hash browns and bagels. Coffee and coffee drinks are really good. I like Starbucks but prefer Bongo as the atmosphere is what it is.....local. Artwork on the... More

We had breakfast and coffee here. Our lattes were good, food wasn't anything special. Had their daily specials omelette and French toast. Bacon in omelette was burnt. French toast was pretty good. Our bill was $30 for two lattes, 1 omelette and 1 French toast. We might go back again for coffee but not a meal.

I went to two different locations and loved each one. I'll have to go back to visit the one I didn't get to but I heard that they also own Fenwick's which I loved as well. Apparently a great place for reunions and hanging out with friends as well as to get some work done.

Great service and delicious breakfast! I couldn't set my fork down the French toast was so good, the server was very helpful. It is a very busy Sunday morning, and everyone brought their little family.
