On the heels of its 50th anniversary at its West Nashville location, the owners of Sperry’s, Trish and Al Thomas, have announced a new location Sperry’s venture will open in Bellevue this spring at 7745 Highway 70 S. This new concept under the Sperry’s brand will feature a cafe focused on craft coffee with a drive-thru and dine in offerings, as well as a market space called Sperry’s Mercantile, which is slated to sell gourmet Sperry’s meats, sauces and seasonings, according to a recent reporting from the Nashville Scene.
Cafe Sperry’s and Sperry’s Mercantile is set to open in March, although an exact opening date is forthcoming. The Sperry’s restaurant has been a local mainstay for the West Nashville and Belle Meade community at its location at 5109 Harding Pike since 1974 and specializes in high-quality steak and seafood, and is known for being home to “Nashville’s first salad bar,” its website states.
Trish and Al Thomas opened a second location of Sperry’s in Cool Springs, Tennessee, in 2006. It’s noted that Cafe Sperry’s will be a separate entity with different offerings from its steakhouses.
Priding itself on “connecting the dots between Old English heritage and the Old South,” both the menu and ambiance of Sperry’s restaurants combine a warm and classic feel, featuring stained glass windows, a fireplace, and ample bar space, is website shows.
Specific food and beverage offerings for Cafe Sperry are forthcoming, but will likely offer coffee, tea, espresso, pastries, sandwiches and snacks, as reported by the Nashville Scene. Operating hours will be 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for dine-in or drive-thru service.
