Germantown Cafe - Nashville, TN

I was more than excited to be in Nashville on Halloween night. And to top it off were were playing the Ryman. And to top that we were in the Johnny Cash room at the Ryman. How on Earth did I get here? I ask myself that all the time.

Anyways, Nashville is famous for a lot of things. I was on a quest for something a little different. Instead of going the regional route I decided on checking out this spot in the Germantown district of Nashville. I'm glad I did. The food was all well prepared and fresh. I only wish I could have gone for dinner.

I'm a sucker for a good BLT. Actually I don't think there is a better summer sandwich than the BLT. And it's probably one of the hardest to make successfully. There are a lot of factors that go into a BLT. The obvious ingredients, B, L, and T. But, one must not forget the mayo and the bread. So you see I have some high expectations. Since we were nearing the end of tomato season I just had to get one more BLT. The bread may have been a poor choice but the addition of fried green tomatoes was great. Would I get it again? Probably not because there were other things on the menu I wanted to try.
Shrimp and grits. I know you're saying "In Tennessee? . . . In GERMANtown?" I like my shrimp and grits without as much "sauce" but that's a personal preference.
The mushroom frittata. What a great brunch item!
This is the best looking french onion soup I've seen in a while.
