Nashville is a city with a healthy concentration of remote workers, something that becomes plenty evident whenever you set foot in a coffee shop in the middle of the day. Lots of laptops, lots of tapping keys, lots of lattes. So, fittingly, we have a lot of great coffee shops and cafes, too, that offer a great cup of something caffeinated, stuff to snack on and a place to sit and work. 


One of the best recent additions to that local landscape — and one you might not have stumbled on yet: Madeline Nashville, in East Nashville’s Cleveland Park.


Madeline ups the ante on providing a cafe space to get things done — it’s not only a drinks and food stop and a comfortable hang, but a laundromat, too. So you can easily get your whites and brights taken care of while you wrap up a day’s work and grab a great lunch.


About lunch: Food can be an add-on and even an afterthought at coffee shops, but since Madeline’s a cafe, the coffee’s great, and the food is front-and-center. Their Madeline burger, with caramelized onions and cheese on a rosemary bun, ranks up there with just about any of Nashville’s best and juiciest burgers, and it’s only $9 with a side (and they get creative with those, like roasted rosemary potatoes and herb-crusted asparagus).

Madeline also puts a focus on their desserts, so if you’re drawn to wrapping up lunch with something sweet, you’re in the right place. The French macarons: crazy good (here, blueberry, coffee and carrot cake flavored).

At the moment, perching at Madeline to grab lunch and work (and potentially get some socks washed), you’re not fighting for a seat — a welcome thing, since it’s not the case at a lot of local coffee shops. Great as the place is, though — and as fast as Cleveland Park is growing as a favorite corner of East Nashville — I don’t expect that’ll last forever.
