We’re about great food culture

Our Story

It all started with a vision... of sandwiches. The notion was simple. Perfect all the ingredients - proteins, cheeses, veggies, bread - and craft sandwiches with flavor combinations and food quality usually reserved for fine dining. A gourmet meal between two pieces of bread.

Now the dream has grown beyond sandwiches to all types of foods. And we bring them to you from local farmers who produce spectacular flavors. Supporting local and sustainable is not a slogan. It’s the right thing to do, and the food tastes better for it.

Food & Good Vibes Meant for Sharing

Butcher & Bee opened in King Street in 2011 with the simple mission of serving honest-to-goodness sandwiches made with flavor combinations and food quality usually reserved for fine dining.

That mission has grown beyond sandwiches to include The Daily, a modern bodega and coffee spot, a second, full-service Butcher & Bee in East Nashville and a bigger Charleston location on Morrison Drive featuring a diverse menu of locally sourced mezze, vegetables and proteins, beer, wine and cocktails.

Swing by The Daily at 652 King Street for coffee, cold-pressed juice, pastries, sandwiches, provisions and more.
