Nashville's most intimate Venue
Live music, theatre, comedy featuring local & national touring acts
Located in the hip Belmont/Hillsboro Village neighborhood across the street from Belmont University, Bongo Java café is a gathering place for residents, students, musicians, artists and a few employed people as well.
The cafe opened Sunday, March 28, 1993 at 4pm and became world famous in December 1996 for the discovery of The Nun Bun, a cinnamon bun that many believe looks remarkably like Mother Teresa.
This café or its sister store, Fido, have been named “Best Coffeehouse” by the Nashville Scene for 18 straight years.
