The neighbourhood at the helm of Nashville’s country music scene is now home to a new café-market.
Roundabout Market and Café opened quietly on Feb. 10 in the Roundabout Plaza Building at 1600 Division Street. The operation, which is the brainchild of owner Carrie Sharbel (who also owns local chain Carrie’s Coffee and the West End’s American Café) will serve local baked goods, made to order sandwiches, smoothies, and grab-n-go snacks, Nashville Business Journal reported Wednesday.
Sharbel is sourcing locally, for the most part — Roundabout will sell coffee from Nashville favourite Bongo Java Coffee & Bakery, and snackables from Corner Market, Charpier Bakery and Coco’s Italian Bistro. It will also run online ordering and pickup (with free 30-minute parking for those stopping by to grab and go).
Roundabout’s smoothie selection leans heavily toward protein-rich mixes: On offer are chocolate and vanilla varieties with whey protein powder, in addition to strawberry and mango recipes made with yogurt, flax seed, or almond milk.
STATUS: Roundabout Market and Café is open at 1600 Division Street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays, and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. The café is closed on Sundays.
