Need caffeine in the morning but the thought of hot coffee is a little overwhelming when its hot outside? We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite iced coffee drinks that keep us going.

1. Honest Coffee Roasters

230 Franklin Rd #11a, Franklin, TN 37064

If you like lattes, you should try the iced latte at Honest Coffee Roasters. Located in The Factory in Franklin, Honest Coffee Roasters makes their latte with JD Milk from Russellville, Kentucky. Some avid coffee drinkers have compared their caliber of coffee to coffee you would find in Portland or Seattle.

2. High Brow Brew 

188 Front St #102, Franklin, TN 37064

A not to miss coffee shop in Westhaven, this hidden gem offers a unique cold coffee option – coffee soda. It’s a blend of carbonation and coffee that is a dream come true for those who are trying to give up soda but like carbonation. We promise this is a game changer.

3. Frothy Monkey 

125 5th Ave S, Franklin, TN 37064

This once parsonage now turned coffee shop has become the holy grail for coffee drinkers. From amazing food pairing to the most intricate signature lattes with flavors of rosemary, orange, mint and so much more. Over ice, these signature lattes become so flavorful that you might actually drink more than one.

4. Coffee and Coconuts

4000 Hughes Crossing, Suite 120, Franklin, TN 37064

If you love the beach, a visit to Coffee and Coconuts is in order. From the bright clean decor to the large greenery found throughout the cafe, it makes you feel as if you are on vacation. Their seasonal drink of frozen hot chocolate gives you the sweetness of chocolate but instead of a mug, you get a frosted glass topped with whipped cream. You can also try their iced coffee selections on the menu for the tradition caffeine fix.

5. Just Love Coffee

7010 Executive Center Dr #106, Brentwood, TN 37027

In the heart of Brentwood, this coffee shop boasts incredible coffee selection along with some good grub.

Be sure to try the Nitro Brew coffee. Nitro coffee is cold brewed, put into a keg and then infused with nitrogen gas. It’s served straight from the tap, just like a cold beer, and it offers that frothy and bubbly, adult-beverage feeling with the carbonation and beer-like head from the nitrogen.

6. Legacy Coffee Co.

2678, 3525 Kedron Rd, Spring Hill

Locally owned coffee shop in Spring Hill, Legacy Coffee shares a space with Viking Pizza. They recently introduced The Freight Train – 4 shots of espresso shaken with bourbon caramel and ice and topped with heavy cream. And you can request it with sugar-free salted caramel to make it KETO.

7. The RedByrd Coffee

Leipers Fork – 4348 Old Hillsboro Road, Franklin

If you are visiting the Leipers Fork Farmers market, be sure to stop by and visit the “tiny little coffee shop” that offers a unique blend of coffee.
