Cheekwood’s Frist Learning Center and new restaurant, Café 29, opened Aug. 23 following a renovation project.
The space features restored horse stables, updated art studios, a new gift shop and the fast-casual eatery.
The café is operated by Nashville-based French-American bar and restaurant Sea Salt.
Café 29’s coffee drinks feature the original Maxwell House coffee blend in honor of the coffee that helped create Cheekwood. The name pays homage to the year 1929, when the Cheek family broke ground on the estate.
The made-to-order menu includes soups, sandwiches, salads, baked goods, coffee selections, alcoholic beverages and more.
You can find sandwiches like a reuben (pictured below), along with chicken salad, pimento cheese, BLT and others.
Indoor and outdoor seating is available in the café and the Frist Learning Center Courtyard. The café features picnics-to-go with a pick-up window.
Café 29 is open during Cheekwood’s operating hours, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday – Sunday
Cheekwood is located at 1200 Forrest Park Drive in Nashville.
