This is a busy little breakfast spot but well worth the wait. It's cheap eats and the food is great. I had the eggs and hash browns with a bagel. The fresh squeezed OJ was a nice touch. Get there early as they were running out of items when we got there around 11.

WiFi available and dog friendly. Fast service. The bongo breakfast special is 2 eggs, toast, hash browns and coffee for 6 dollars ! Plus they deliver.to your table after you order at counter and they serve on real plates! You can't beat Bingo. They have multiple locations

We decided to take a day off from work and have a purposely slow Friday morning; a well-intentioned kind of restful do-nothing coffee shop stop. So after looking at Trip Advisor the night before, we found Bongo Java for the first time. The food, service and coffee selection is on par with the TA reviews we read. Compared to other... More

Nothing like an unseasonably warm Feb morning to sit outside at Bongo and enjoy some.great coffee, and breakfast. The oatmeal cessation with strawberries, raisins and bananas, just get there before it's gone. They rock hash browns so try those for sure. They have all the fancy drinks and iced coffee, too. Dogs are always plentiful at the.outside tables.

I like to try local coffee spots when I'm traveling & came across this gem. They have a ton of unique flavors & brews. I got a Spiced Carrot Latte with cinnamon, orange zest, and coconut milk... quite tasty. Laid back atmosphere with plenty of tables & seating, including outdoor seating. Planning on visiting again tomorrow.

Sort of in a rush, we enjoyed our first visit here, to warm up on a cold night, with some sort of coffee. Ended up having a almond milk cinnamon tea and a regular coffee and it was good. We didn't have much time to order and were in a hurry, so. Next time, I will allow a more casual... More

Just love the unusual coffee they serve! Food is good too but I just have to have a coffee when in town visiting my so. At Belmont. This trip I enjoyed the Wascally Wabbit. So delish! If they have a "grey skies" coffee or tea isn't a must have!!

Contrary to the coffee-centric name, Bongo Java is actually a bagel cafe and it is a VERY good one. On a recent trip to Nashville I experienced eating there several times, as it was located across the street from my air bnb place. I'm so glad I found it! The place is a order-at-the-counter shop where patrons take away their... More

Breakfast for 3 was over $30, but the portions are big. I could have easily split the special with my husband. Nice to sit outside and people watch.

I stayed at a nearby Airbnb and woke up needed some good coffee. I walked outside and backtracked from the stream of college students I saw with to go cups. Coffee was great. I really like the outdoor seating area.
