Tour Guide Tuesday: East Nashville Favorites Part 1

Favorite Ice Cream: Jeni's
 


This eastside staple is a homemade, nothin but the good stuff, ice cream maker.  Located right off Eastland Ave., the varying flavors from Salty Caramel to Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet are sure to wake up your taste buds!


Favorite Brunch: Marche

 
Looking for European style right off Main Street?  This café is the hot spot for weekend brunch.  They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily and feature homemade pastries, a espresso bar, and fresh meats, fish and cheeses.  This restaurant maybe right off of the 5-points area, but inside you will feel like you are at a bustling café in France or Italy.


Favorite Festival: Tomato Arts Festival

Ya'll, this festival is a family friendly blast!  It kicks off with a 5k and hosts an array or tomato-centered events.  The festival's tagline is "The Tomato, a uniter, not a divider". 


Bloody Mary Bar? check!
Famous Nashville Food Trucks featuring tomato menus? check!
Bobbing for tomatoes? check!
Cornhole tourney? check!
Dog fashion event? check!



This year's event will be August 10th, 2013


Favorite Wine Bar and Patio: Rumors


 
Rumors is known for the ambiance.  Looking for a bohemian style wine bar, Rumors is it.  They also have a limited menu, but with a wine menu like they have, who wants to eat?!?  Located in the heart of East Nashville in 5 Points, this delightful patio will have you at hello. They offer reservations available through Open Table if you want to avoid the wait.
 
I have a lot more of my East Nashville favorites in store next week, so stay tuned.
