Bongo Java
Bongo Java

These coffee roasters churn out some of the best java in the city, but don’t overlook their fresh pastries, sammies, and desserts.

“Bongo Java has it all. They have a few locations now, but the one dearest to my heart is right across from Belmont University. I spent many hours there and could always afford a Bongo Basic. They give you hash browns, toast, two eggs, AND a cup of coffee for $6 bucks. Oh, and they have this coconut cake that I sometimes dream of.” – Oginalli
