Roze Pony Opens in Belle Meade

Hardy har har, East Nashvillians just loooove to laugh at the West Side for its lack of coolness. East Nashville has hip bars, lively music venues and cool shops. West Nashville has … fast-food chains and a Trader Joe’s. But that is starting to change! Bellevue has continued to grow, bringing with it HoneyFire Barbeque Co., DeSano Pizza and more, and this year Cafe Roze opened its sister restaurant, Roze Pony, a cozy and cool all-day cafe in the Belle Meade Galleria. They provide laid-back and thoughtful fare similar to what you’ll find at Cafe Roze, with some of their own twists on the menu. The egg sandwich is a personal favorite — a slice of herby frittata is topped with pesto aioli and tomato and tucked inside a tender, buttery brioche bun. They serve High Garden tea and OSA coffee, and on the weekends they carry Conny and Jonny doughnuts. They also have a small pantry and market section, selling fresh-baked loaves of bread, dried pasta, fancy vinegar and oil and even handmade dishware from Salt Ceramics. Suck it, East.
