“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
– Lao Tzu
Over ten 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 high end hotel and I was the Director of Catering. I booked it and he cooked it, literally!
Our love and passion for people, great food, and events brought us together and showed us both 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 to Nashville, TN in October 2019 to start our dream.
We were excited that we found a location in a medical office building that is attached to a hospital. This meant we would hopefully get to meet and know a lot of the employees! If you know anything about us, not only are we passionate about what we do but we also love people! We have slowly built an "All Day Menu" along with daily Breakfast and Lunch menus that was specifically created off the original specials that you all loved! Each week, Chef Enrique still puts out a Specials Menu for both breakfast and lunch to make sure there is always something new and tasty for you. We also strive to provide an atmosphere where you feel comfortable. We love nothing more than hearing about your day!
Since we opened in November 2019, we have been through a lot. A tornado took out one of our vendors, COVID-19 (and all the new rules and regulations that come with it increasing cost and decreasing customers), food/supply shortages, and increased food prices.
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 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 three 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.
