Franklin, TN, April 18, 2008 - CAFY'S ROAST HOUSE CAFÉ TAKES YOUR CRAVING TO A WHOLE NEW PLACE. Cool Springs coffee roast house and café serves up organic, gourmet fare with a side of environmental responsibility in an inviting plaza setting evoking a European village square.

Cafy's is the brainchild of Eric Powers, Mona Pridemore, and Drs. Jeff and Gregory Cook. It is the distinctive balance of Powers' extensive experience in restaurant design and development and Pridemore's passion for organic, gourmet food and coffee with the Cook's enthusiastic yearning for that quaint village ambiance that promise to make Cafy's a full sensory experience - the tantalizing aromas, luscious flavors, and striking designs with their rich textures all make for a destination event.

Situated in the heart of Aspen Brook Village located at the corner of Cool Springs Blvd and Aspen Grove Drive, Cafy's exemplifies the plaza's hometown esprit de corps. It is an ideal place to meet and greet friendly neighbors and co-workers, enjoy a gourmet meal or take advantage of the made-from-scratch dessert menu.

Cafy's expert Roast Master finesses the in-house microroaster ensuring an artisanal approach to each batch of coffee. All coffee served at the café and sold by the bag is roasted in small batches ensuring the highest standards for exceptional custom blends and guaranteeing freshness. For those preferring decaf coffee, Cafy's roasts beans decaffeinated using the chemical-free Swiss Water Process, thereby making it nearly indistinguishable from the caffeinated variety.

"It has been such a wonderful experience pulling all this together - making sure that our overall offerings are as organic and locally provided as possible and of course delicious," said Pridemore, Operations Partner. "We're very passionate about that just right combination of great food, coffee, and friends, all in a comfortable, welcoming environment. Later you can stroll the plaza and browse the shops."

Cafy's dedication to good food is evident in their gourmet breakfast, lunch, and dinner items like Croissant French Toast with Fresh Strawberry Slices and Homemade Strawberry Syrup, Caramelized Onion BLT with Brown Sugar Bacon, and Garlic Herb Tilapia with Fruit Salsa, respectively.

Made-from-scratch desserts include New York-style cheesecake, a variety of layer cakes, pies, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, and panna cotta. Since the menu is based on locally available foods, the offerings will change with each season, taking full advantage of the freshest ingredients.

According to Powers, Cafy's Business Management & Development Partner, "There has been surprising, but very welcome, interest in further developing the Cafy's concept. We're already looking at expanding into other markets, additional cafés, wholesale coffee and dessert offerings, and logo merchandise."

Cafy's is located at 3301 Aspen Grove Drive, Suite 105, Franklin, TN 37067. They will be open from 7 am to 9 pm Mondays through Thursdays, 7 am to 10 pm Fridays and Saturdays and 9 am to 2 pm on Sundays. Contact by phone 615-503-9766 and online at
