    Celebrated Father’s Day brunch and as always it was excellent. Dean took care of us and was attentive, remembered previously caring for us and took time to make us feel like we were his only clients. There’s no reason this isn’t the best brunch spot in town between the bottomless mimosas to food options, not to mention their flexibility to ensure your meal is what you wanted, I can’t encourage anymore more but to go and support this great local and original Nashville gem.

    The French onion soup was delightful! The curry salmon and the plum pork was delicious as well. You can sign up on their website for a complimentary soup for your first visit. We loved it and will be back! Also there’s plenty of free street parking even though it was a Saturday night.

    We always have enjoyed Germantown Cafe but have not been in awhile. Beignets, as always, did not disappoint nor did the French fries and Coconut Curry Salmon . They were delicious! Our guest had the crab cakes and said they were very good. However ,the special for the evening, Airline chicken was disappointing as was the vegetable bowl . Our server could have been more engaging but served us well. Germantown Cafe has been a local staple for a long time and it was good to be back!

    Lunch at Germantown Cafe was an absolute treat! The meatballs were a great start, perfect for sharing, and each dish stood out, particularly the Ahi Tuna sandwich, masterfully cooked and bursting with flavor. The French Onion Soup deserves a special mention too—one of the best you can find in Nashville. Joanna's attentive and friendly service enhanced our dining experience, making it truly memorable.
