Crema is hands down my favorite coffee shop in Nashville. It's also been around longer than many of the trendiest shops in the city. When I had moved to Nashville in 2010, it was still one small room, a different bar set-up, and they weren't yet offering the robust selection of self-roasted beans that they do now. They have since expanded the main room, updated their bar, and created a back room for roasting and classes. It's also one of my favorite views in the city, nestled up on high just off downtown.
