Restaurant Review: Barista Parlor East Nashville Coffee

I recently went to Barista Parlor in East Nashville with close girlfriends where we spent a good 3 1/2 hours just enjoying our Saturday morning. It has a cool, industrial vibe and was a fun and stimulating environment to catch up, hang out, and just relax. 

The décor includes lots of reclaimed wood, and the leftover lumber has been used to assemble a striking 30-by-8-foot sign in the shape of an anchor, designed by artist Bryce McCloud of Isle of Printing. Baristas work in the center of the room, and the customers, if they choose, will sit circling the bar, watching their coffee being prepared and quizzing the experts about the process.

Barista opened its doors back in May and features such a great concept. In fact, this is how they describe themselves on Facebook: 

Slayer + multiple roasters + multiple brew methods handcrafted by-the-cup = Barista Parlor

With some of the best gear in the world, Barista has a custom-made, handcrafted Slayer Espresso machine out of Seattle, one of the first in our region. My coffee was absolutely delicious and handcrafted with great care. 

I loved the heart design within the foam of my coffee. A nice handcrafted touch!

Barista Parlor also serves breakfast every morning, and the chefs from Porter Road, Chris Carter and James Peisker, provide seasonal casseroles and breakfast sandwiches. The breakfast sandwich we both had was superb and complete with Benton’s bacon! Anyone who loves bacon would be a fan!
