Nashville’s renowned Johnny Cash Museum has only been opened less than two years but has expanded three times during that period.
The latest expansion includes tripling the size of the museum store and adding a Bongo Java Café featuring Nashville’s finest coffee and coffee drinks as well as gourmet café fare. The original Bongo Java has the distinction of being Nashville’s oldest and most honored coffee house, having opened its first location in 1993. Bongo is known for it’s use of local ingredients and coffee beans are organic and fare trade.
The café offers a delicious assortment of pastries and baked goods as well as sandwiches, salads and other items made fresh daily in the facility’s new kitchen. Signature items include Johnny Cash’s Iron Pot Chili made from a recipe created by The Man In Black himself. Other favorites include a Fried Bologna and Pimento Cheese sandwich and The Elvis, which features The King’s favorite peanut butter, honey, bananas and bacon served on honey wheat bread.
