We started our second day in Nashville touring the Parthenon. No really, it’s a full scale replica of the Athens Parthenon, except it’s in the middle of Tennessee.

peace love little donuts nashvilleDonut heaven at Peace, Love, & Little Donuts in downtown Nashville.

peace love little donuts nashvilleI got chocolate chip cookie dough, samoa, and maple bacon mini donuts. Mini donuts mean I can eat 20 and feel ok about it.

pancake pantry nashvilleBreakfast the next morning at Pancake Pantry, arguably Nashville’s most famous breakfast spot. This was the line at 7am.

pancake pantry nashvilleMy sweet potato pancakes, however, were something really unique. They come with cinnamon cream syrup, a sugary milky housemade concoction. The pancakes had an interesting sweet & savory flavor, and mixed with the cinnamon cream syrup, they were extraordinary. Also, we shared a plate of the homefries, which were insanely good. This place is delicious but really only worth it if you get there early and beat the line!
