Our Story

In the heart of Gallatin, Tennessee a revitalized historic district has begun a resurgence.  In our historic town square, new life has sprung up, and the community has reclaimed an important part of it's past, and... it's future.  

We believe that community thrives by gathering together to share what makes us great - friendship, family, working together for the betterment of our home. Arguably the best place for a community to gather is at a local coffee shop, one with an inviting atmosphere, friendly and professional staff, and absolutely amazing coffee.  For the great city of Gallatin, Umbra Coffee is that place.

Born in the shadow (umbra) of the Great Eclipse of 2017 in the city closest to the center of it's path through Tennessee, Umbra Coffee is Sumner County's specialty coffee destination, serving espresso, batch brew, flash-chilled iced coffee, and pour-over options made with expertly roasted offerings from Tin Cup Coffee Co. We also offer world-class tea from Hugo Tea Co., a stellar selection of fresh pastries from Provence Breads, grab-n-go food (coming soon), and other beverages. For our current menu, click here.

We put our all into making sure your experience is a bright spot in your day. Consider how the night-time stars are visible during a total solar eclipse. We like to think that they represent delightful and hopeful moments, to be remembered, no matter what may overshadow us in life.  We hope to add a star or two to your story with our commitment to the highest level of care for you, our guest, to the quality of our offerings, our vendors, and the positive-minded people we employ.   

In the shadow of an eclipse, you're in for something special. When you're in the Umbra, you're in the right place at the right time.
