Thistle Farms Café Reblooms
Thistle Farms has reopened its Café with a sleek, modern look and the same big heart. Its blooming thistle sits atop the roof signaling an oasis in its location along West Nashville’s revitalized Charlotte Pike corridor. And inside the full-service restaurant and event space, their classic teacup ceiling still hangs overhead. With their new menu, developed by culinary director and Nashville chef Martha Stamps, the Café serves globally inspired, locally sourced breakfast, lunch, and daily tea service, all cooked by the women that reside in the program.
Committed first and foremost to their support of a substancefree life for women, this isn’t where you’ll want to come for an afternoon apértif, as they don’t serve alcohol. The Café at Thistle Farms serves up love. Their heartbeat remains steadily a part of Thistle Farms’ social enterprise, which heals, empowers, and employs women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction.
The Café sources its fresh, produce-driven food and beverage offerings from Middle Tennessee farmers and makers, including Willow Farms, Long Hungry Creek, Frothy Monkey Bakery, Just Love Coffee, Firepot Nomadic Teas, Bell’s Bend Farms, Carter Creek Farms, and Groves Family Dairy.
