Went on a Saturday afternoon. Seated immediately by a friendly hostess. Wait staff came almost immediately with menus and suggestions when we asked. She recommended a house cocktail on tap when one of us ordered a Manhattan. The house cocktail was excellent! Cant remember the name of it. sorry. Ordered beer cheese appetizer. It was wonderful. Fresh and hot. Loved... More

Even though their coffee maker broke, they served us some great alternative. Breakfast items were delicious, service was fast and very friendly. Definitely a plus for the East Nashville environment

We got seated right away, and our server, Jake, was most pleasant. The food, once we received it, was very good. I think our ticket got behind a large party, so it took quite a while. The manager made it all better for us, so we were quite happy with the visit.

We liked this spot but it's pricey and you don't get a big portion. We both big eaters and we left hungry still. They had an awesome Bloody Mary though. It was $50 for two drinks and two meals

If you're heading out of downtown for a day in East Nashville, make it a point to stop at the Family Wash/Garage Coffee for breakfast. Family friendly, good down home cooking.

They take brunch reservations which is one reason we went there. The food was interesting, good brunch food. Live music on Sunday afternoon was a kick. The service was below par (we had to hunt down our waitress to check out and wait too long for coffee refills) but overall it was a good experience.

We had a work, lunch meeting here and it was very good! It was my first visit and I'm sure I'll be back. I had the soup of the day, cauliflower soup, and it was amazing. The atmosphere was nice as was our server! Be prepared for parking challenges but it's worth it.

We were here for drinks only before a soccer game at the Nissan Stadium and really liked the place. The vibe is very cool and, although we didn't tried them, the sandwiches looked amazing! Will definitively come back for the food, and it's a great place for a drink or snack before any game, the stadium is only three blocks... More
