Two Nashville spots set their sites on Williamson County with openings this month. Crema Coffee Roasters — which currently has locations in downtown and East Nashville — officially opens its doors on August 30 at 330 Franklin Road. The new Brentwood location — the largest of all their cafes — will offer an expanded breakfast and lunch menu featuring Crema’s signature breakfast sandwich, avocado toast, and homemade granola
A little further south in Berry Farms, Biscuit Love is opening its fifth location (the second in Franklin) at 3100 Village Plains Boulevard on August 25. The Berry Farms space has been designed to mimic a neighborhood diner and evoke the nostalgic feeling of “brunch at Grannie’s,” according to the company. Expect signature menu items on the menu like bonuts, the East Nasty biscuit sandwich with fried chicken thighs, and housemade granola.
Cole’s Kitchen closes its doors
Cole’s Kitchen announced that it would be closing its doors on August 26 via TikTok and Instagram. The Green Hills eatery was originally the eclectically kitschy (and locally beloved) Firefly Grille before owner Curt Cole gave the space a refreshed look and menu back in 2019. Cole’s did not immediately cite a reason for the closure but will continue regular service until this Saturday.
Detroit’s Joe Muer makes its way to Nashville
Detroit seafood institution, Joe Muer, will open its first location outside of Michigan at Capitol View (500 11 Avenue) on August 23. The restaurant’s new 12,000-square-foot space will feature some of its original Detriot menu items — like a fresh Dover filet served tableside — along with Southern takes on seafood dishes such as bacon-wrapped shrimp stuffed with crab imperial and a blackened redfish with crawdad “yabby” butter. Dinner service will be offered from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and until 11 p.m. every Friday and Saturday

Yellow Rose Tea service winds up its final week at The Hermitage
The Hermitage Hotel will close out its Yellow Rose Tea service this weekend. The ceremony, which celebrates the 103rd anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment and The Hermitage’s role as the epicenter of an embattled mix of pro- and anti-suffragists, includes tea sandwiches, scones, and pastries inspired by the Suffragist Cookbook, tea, a commemorative keepsake, and a yellow rose. Service is available this Sunday at 2 p.m. and is $95 for adults and $45 for children 10 and under. Reservations can be made here.
