“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
– Lao Tzu
Over 13 years ago, we met at an outdoor patio dining table on a pier in Key West. Enrique was an Executive Sous/Banquet Chef at a highly recognized hotel, and I was the Director of Catering there and at the private island. I booked it and he cooked it, literally!
Our love and passion for people, great food, and events brought us together and then ultimately showed us it was okay to dream bigger.
After a lot of research and considering almost every corner of the country, we moved over 1,000 miles from Key West, FL to Nashville, TN in October 2019 to start a new dream.
Since we opened in November 2019, we have been through a lot.
After just 4 months of being open, a tornado took out one of our vendors and COVID practically shut down the world. The struggles with all the new rules and regulations that continue to change, increasing supply cost, food/supply shortages, and increased food prices have certainly made things challenging.
With all of this, we have survived because of our AMAZING and loyal customers!
We couldn’t be more thrilled to invite you to join us at our cafe for breakfast or lunch. Whether you are working at the 20th Ave Medical Building, Ascension St. Thomas Midtown Hospital, a surrounding building, or just visiting, we look forward to meeting you and sharing a few laughs!

Erin wants a fainting goat.
Enrique thinks our dogs are enough.
Erin did the business documents!
Fainting Goats can also be referred to as Myotonic, Tennessee Fainting, Tennessee Meat, Texas Wooden Leg, Stiff, Nervous, and Scare goats. They can be traced back to the 1880's and are thought to be originated in Tennessee.
