If you are looking for a casual, fine dining restaurant in the Historic East Nashville area, Margot Cafe & Bar is it. Here you will find the classic Italian cuisine as well as a rustic French cuisine. When it comes to the Italian cuisine the emphasis is placed on two regions: Tuscany and Provence.

The Changing Menu

The one thing you will love about this restaurant is the ever changing menu. Every day you will find something new to explore. However, the foundation will remain the same. No matter what items are new for the day, restaurant goers will still have access to seven entrees, six appetizers and five desserts.

Since the menu changes frequently and the prices are very affordable, many guests will stop by several times a week. Diners all across the Southeast love the simplicity and the freshness of the food.


The building that is now home to Margot Cafe & Bar has been around since the 1930's. Originally it was known as Fluty's Service Station. It was abandoned for several years before Margot McCormack, Jay Frein and March Egerton came together to completely transform the space. It is now a cozy place for diners to come and gather.

The brick walls are nicely draped with copper pots, antique mirrors and Italian plates. The atmosphere is very warm and vibrant thanks to the playful use of colors. When you walk through the doors you will feel very comfortable, and right at home.

Outdoor Dining

If you prefer dining outdoors you will love the brick patio. It can either be left open or enclosed during the colder months of the year. This allows you to dine outdoors no matter what the weather. The restaurant also features a marble bar, an open kitchen, gardens filled with flowers, and dining on the mezzanine.

The feel at Margot's is different than any other cafe or bar you have been to. While it's unique to Nashville, it makes you feel like you are in a neighborhood restaurant in New York or San Francisco.
