Pinewood SocialHey, friends! Today I’m excited to kick off a new series of MINI city guides! Almost every weekend I get messages from blog readers who are coming to Nashville for just 24 hours. I thought it would be fun to share collections of fun places to visit here and in other cities we love to travel to! 

Since you’re OUR blog readers, I’m going to assume you also care about aesthetics, and so in addition to the food being delicious, all the places I will share with you are photogenic and unique! 

Pinewood Social
One of my top favorite places in Nashville! You can eat all three meals here, but we tend to go most often for breakfast. For lunch or dinner, they have one of the best kale salads in town and really great cocktails! They also have a Crema location inside, which is one of our favorite coffee shops and my favorite for almond milk lattes (I’ve tried them all… VERY scientific testing, you guys!). 

In addition, there is a super pretty bowling alley in the back part of the restaurant as well as a dipping pool for the summer. (For poolside cocktails – how cute is that?) Highly recommend it if it’s your first trip to Nashville.

The Flipside The Flipside

This is a newer spot for us, but we love it more with every visit! The decor is absolutely adorable, and this spot is most known for their crazy Bloody Mary. 

The Flipside NashvilleIt’s totally a meal in case you couldn’t tell. 

The FlipsideI love this little spot. This time of year they leave their huge windows open, so it’s basically a giant porch. It’s on one of the cutest streets that’s fun to walk around on the weekends. 

Five Daughters BakeryFive Daughters Bakery

Five Daughters has some of the best donuts I’ve ever tried in my life… cronuts actually! They are ridiculously good. Their location is so cute too! If you don’t have time to visit the shop, they also serve them at Barista Parlor locations… it’s one of our top Saturday morning rituals. 

This is super close to The Flipside, so you can do both at the same time. LeSel NashvilleLe Sel

Le Sel is by far the prettiest restaurant in Nashville… I mean PINK VELVET BOOTHS?! Laura and I think it’s one of the very best spots for a fancy date night or celebration. They also have the best pommes frites! 

LeSelSo good, right??

I hope you enjoyed this first MINI city guide. I think the smaller format will help me be able to bring them to you much MUCH more frequently. I will definitely share more Nashville spots in the future as well – there are so many great spots that don’t get nearly the attention they deserve AND new spots popping up all the time. 

Oh and if you’d like to see our past city guides, check out Nashville, New Orleans, Palm Springs and Brooklyn.
