BONGO EAST CAFE
Part Coffeehouse, Part Board Game Café
Our East Nashville location has two names and combines a traditional coffeehouse with the city’s first board game café. In 2000, Bongo helped kick-off the revitalization of the 5 Points business neighborhood by moving our coffee roasting operation there. The café portion was added almost as an after-thought. As the neighborhood grew around us, we moved the roasting division out to make room for tables and chairs.
Now the café boasts a breakfast, lunch and snacking menu along with a coffee bar that features our 100% organic coffee and local craft brews. Our carefully curated selection of more than 700 board games is free for customers to enjoy. Game coaches are on hand in the evenings to teach, settle rule disputes and recommend new games. Many of the games are also available for sale at prices as close to online prices as we can without giving up customer service.
