Cherry Street {eatery & sweetery}

 

Looking for a bite to eat when you're at the Schermerhorn? Stop by Cherry Street {eatery & sweetery}, located in the West Lobby. Chef and owner Meg Giuffrida provides delicious scones, sandwiches, soups and desserts for breakfast and lunch 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on weekdays, and on all concert evenings.

Best known to local diners as the owner and chef of the beloved Red Wagon Cafe, Giuffrida is committed to serving healthy meals, locally sourced and made-from-scratch — grab-and-go “good food” at a competitive price point. Her clients have included Vanderbilt University, Belmont University, CMT, Frist Center for the Visual Arts, and the Mayor’s Office. During its popular run in East Nashville, Red Wagon garnered considerable critical acclaim, having been voted “Best Brunch” and “Best Caterer” several times in the Nashville Scene’s Best of Nashville Awards.

The café takes its moniker from the original name for Nashville’s Fourth Avenue, which was until the early 20th century known as Cherry Street.

As part of Giuffrida’s commitment to supporting social enterprise, Cherry Street {eatery and sweetery} will be a satellite employment location for some of the women who have gone through the job training program at Thistle Farms. In addition, a portion of sales at the Schermerhorn will be donated to Thistle Farms. “People want to spend their money doing good,” says Giuffrida. “With Cherry Street {eatery and sweetery} as the bridge between Thistle Farms and the Nashville Symphony, patrons can feel good about supporting two local non-profits.”
