Get caffeinated and grab a quick bite at either Downtown or Cooper Young location. Their coffee is a blend of  beans from South America, Indonesia, and Central America.

When you walk in Cafe Keough's Main Street coffee shop for the first time, I promise you'll be pleasantly surprised and enchanted by the tall ceilings, aged tile floors, and general ambience of the place. On top of brewing some of the best coffee in the city, they have the perfect dishes to accompany your cup of Joe.

7.  Carrington Oaks Coffeehouse | Collierville

Nestled in Collierville (a hidden gem in my opinion) is the perfect gathering space over coffee. Lattes, macchiatos, homemade French toast, you name it, they have it! They recently opened a second location in Lakeland, TN. Bring your pup and chill out, drink, and catch up on work on their super spacious outdoor seating.
