Located in Historic East Nashville, The Post East specializes in gluten-free, vegan, and organic fare options.

Chugga Hi Bakery and Café

Sisters Kathy and Sandra’s love of food began with their mother, who prepared homemade dinner and desserts for their family.  While inheriting their mother’s recipes and adding a little twist of her own, Sandra and Kathy decided to build a family legacy and create an opportunity for all of Nashville to experience a little taste of what they were blessed to have as young children.
