Calypso Cafe was recently featured on NewsChannel 5’s “Talk of the Town” TV show. Owner, Allison Brooks, spoke with Meryll Rose about the local restaurant change celebrating their 30th birthday and serving healthy food to the Nashville area long before eating healthy was as popular as it is today.

Also in the segment, Allison shares the recipe for our Calypso Marinated Vegetables salad.

Calypso Cafe recently had the opportunity to support Explore Community School located in the East Nashville / Five Points area, with a special project-based learning experience for their students. The students were challenged to research and discover the details and important information needed for opening a memorable restaurant.

The students interviewed Calypso Cafe staff, ordered food from their healthy menu options in their exploration of what it takes to open a restaurant.
