Most guests deliberately book our Inn because of its location in 12South, an urban neighborhood walkable to nearby locally-owned restaurants, craft cocktails, brew houses, coffee shops, and boutique shopping. Breakfast is no different! We are spoiled rotten to have amazing restaurants within blocks of the Caroline House Nashville, with menu items crafted by our community's highly skilled local chefs. We want our guests to experience this like a local and have the opportunity to explore our amazing neighborhood!

After sleeping in, at your leisure you will find a coffee & hot tea station waiting for you in the kitchen, with coffee from fresh-ground beans, which were fresh-roasted a few blocks away from our Inn. When you’re ready, within a short walk just a few blocks away, you will find a plethora of options for breakfast!  This "tour" is included in your room rate when booking a single private en suite or studio, and at a different site each day! Our breakfast partners serve it practically all morning and into the lunch hour, so it’s on your time! And it’s an opportunity to explore the neighborhood! When you’re done, enjoy some boutique shopping and sightseeing in the area, or grab a bike at the rental rack and ride downtown. The adventure is yours!

The Caroline House Nashville's mission is to support local small business and charitable causes. We appreciate our guests participating in this mission and look forward to hearing your feedback about your “Local Neighborhood Breakfast Tour” experience exploring the neighborhood!

Ladybird Taco

A fast casual restaurant located one block from our Inn, specializing in breakfast tacos. Modeled after the taco scene in Austin, TX, Ladybird serves house-made tortillas, queso and salsa from fresh ingredients, alongside a full barista service! We love our friends & neighbors at Ladybird Taco!

8th and Roast

Eighth and Roast is located at historic Douglas Corner on 8th Avenue South, just blocks from our Inn.  So in keeping with the Caroline House Nashville's advocacy for historic preservation, this makes this vintage-styled coffee house an ideal coffee bean partner.  This local neighborhood roaster is our exclusive coffee bean supplier, taste-tested and selected by guests of our Inn and guaranteed to put a little "Giddy-Up" in your step!

Five Daughters Bakery believes in love, and they believe in family.  So does our Inn!  This is what we call the 'bucket list donut', perfect for vacation!  Known for their 100-layer donut as well as traditional breakfast biscuits, this unique bakery uses locally sourced non-GMO ingredients made daily from scratch.  Owned by a third-generation local Nashville area business owner and baker.

Frothy Monkey

Frothy Monkey has been a long-time consistent staple in the 12 South community since 2004, featuring creative folks using local ingredients to prepare original dishes served in a cozy and approachable atmosphere. Caroline House Nashville also believes in buying local and supporting neighborhood businesses, so we are pleased to partner with Frothy Monkey.

Maple Street Biscuits

There’s nothing more southern than a biscuit, so including a stop at our neighborhood’s biscuit house is a must! Maple Street Biscuits features comfort food with a twist, served by a fun, friendly, energetic team!
