Breakfast, everyone?

From 7 to 9:30 a.m. during the week, the first-floor lobby at 201 4th Avenue North has a new look – and new, tempting aromas.

Nashville City Club has opened “Breakfast on the Go,” a kiosk service that caters to employees in the 20-floor Service Source building. A sidewalk placard welcomes walkers-by to grab a coffee, a fresh blueberry scone or a sausage biscuit. Or all three.

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
–Lewis Carroll

All regular menu items are $3 or less and include jumbo (warm) cinnamon rolls, strawberry and cream cheese croissant, blueberry scones, sausage biscuits, bacon biscuits, fruit parfait, whole fruit, yogurt and breakfast bars. Beverages available are coffee, orange juice, bottled water and energy drinks.

The daily special is $4, and here’s the line-up through the end of 2013:

  • Monday – Loaded bacon/egg/cheese/ham biscuit
  • Tuesday – Sausage link/pancake on a stick
  • Wednesday – Chorizo huevos rancheros burrito
  • Thursday – Fried chicken and waffle biscuit
  • Friday – French toast/bacon/egg/cheese

Offering Monday through Friday downtown Nashville breakfast kiosk service was the idea of NCC Managing Director Chris Weinberg. Before relocating to Nashville, Chris built and ran a Charlotte-based business consulting firm that worked with the hospitality industry.

What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast?”
–Anthony Bourdain

The goal is twofold – give downtown workers, especially those whose offices are in the same building as the club, more early-morning options and introduce people to one of the City Club’s hallmarks – extraordinary, high-quality food.

And, the elevator ride from the lobby to the 20th floor doesn’t take long if breakfast diners want to check out the club itself.

Have you tried the service yet? Tell your downtown-based friends about it, and tell us what you think.

“Feedback is the breakfast of champions”
