REVIEWS OF The Loveless Cafe IN Tennessee

Fanchon Edgar

The Loveless Cafe NEVER disappoints! Rachel (our server) was amazing. I had the meatloaf and it was awesome. Other folks at my table had the chicken fried chicken and the quarter chicken. Equally terrific! And of course...the biscuits and preserves were FABULOUS! If you are traveling to Nashville you cannot miss going to The Loveless Cafe!

Randy Endsley

5 for food and service. The wait was 1.5 hours but it was lunch time on a Saturday..... Just says how good & popular they are. Food was spectacular.

Louis Wofford

A little too popular for its own good We arrived at 10:30 on a Saturday morning, hoping to have brunch, but there was an hour and forty minute wait... So we went elsewhere.

Jacquelyn Dempsey

Cant say enough about the food and service at this restaurant! Wish I could eat here every day. We got a couple of main dishes and a bunch of sides to share with the table and absolutely everything was amazing! Our waitress delivered each item with a smile! They even had a little gift shop where we could buy souvenirs, including some of their biscuit mix (which the biscuits were the best we had in Nashville).

terri hopper

Refreshing! The biscuits reminded my husband of when he grew up. They are the perfect size. I'm not a biscuit person. These biscuits are great. Great preserves, coffee, Rachel was our waitress and she was wonderful. The Southern sampler great and Country Fried steak "Big" and good!

Mark Tidman

My wife & I had the Boneless Smoked Pork Chops. They were delicious. If you have food allergies, tell your server. A manager will come to your table and converse with the affected person about which items are okay and which to avoid. Expect a 90-120 minute wait on weekends. After checking in you can drive the North end of the Natchez Trace which is beautiful. Enjoy not rushing (40 mph) and watching for cyclists.

Jeff Calvert

Great home cooked meal in a like home setting. We walked in without reservations and waited for a short 45 minutes. There is plenty of shopping and walking around to do and you have a buzzer to let you know when your table is ready. You are served with warm complementary biscuits when you sit at your table. The service is friendly and attentive. Large portions and solid home cooked flavors.

peter robinson

Took a leisurely drive out to Loveless today for lunch. We had made reservations so only 5 minute wait. Food was delicious and plentiful ! Great biscuits with home made preserves. The fried chicken was excellent...crisp on the outside and juicy tender on the inside...mashed potatoes with gravy and mac and cheese sides delicious too. Service was fast and friendly !

Sheri Burns

My nephew recommended the Loveless Cafe to us. We really enjoyed our visit there. There's several shops and a local artists gallery to look through while you are there. My husband ordered the honey basted fried chicken. I had the pulled pork platter. We both had hash brown casserole as a side. He also had fried okra, and I had the green beans. Our food was very good, and the portions very generous. We saved room for dessert. I had the fudge pie and my husband had the peach and blueberry pie. Neither one of us was disappointed. We did have quite a long wait to be seated--over an hour. But we were there on a Saturday afternoon. However, once we were seated, our food arrived very quickly, and our server was very attentive. You may want to plan your visit there at a less busy time. The Loveless Cafe has some distinctive and unusual folk art hanging on the walls. Take time to look around and admire the paintings while you are enjoying your meal.

Robert Gresham

First time visiting Loveless Cafe and it didn't disappoint. I ordered the "Southern Sample Breakfast" and EVERYTHING was delicious. The service was much quicker than I expected for a packed restaurant, but expect a lengthy wait time to be seated. After receiving our food, the manager/owner came to the table and made sure that the meal was satisfactory.. Overall, it was a great experience and the next time that I visit Nashville, I will be back!

Shuffle Shuffle

Nice little care with the big reputation. I'm told it's rated the best breakfast so went. Reservations are suggested for breakfast but we got there around 12:30 and were seated immediately. We all got breakfast except one who had a pork sandwich. They serve their homemade biscuits first. They're light and airy and warm, served with their homemade jams. They are all delicious. The pancakes were a bit dense but soaked up the syrup nicely. The bacon was crisp, the way I like it. The French toast was lightly legged, thick and good. The chicken and waffles were also delicious. Chicken cooked well, the breading crisp and not greasy. The waffles were also a bit dense but were a great bite. The pork was good, not too saucy. And the sauce had just the right sweetness. They also serve a home smoked country ham. It was a little dry and very salty. They serve it with their red sauce, a combination of brown sugar, coffee, and some spices. It went well with he ham but was a but overpowered by the large ham flavor. I was surprised by the slow service as they were not packed. It took a while to get some additional syrup and even longer waiting for a second cup.of coffee. All in all a quaint little cafe. You can buy the jams, ham, and biscuits to take home. Stop buy and enjoy a slow leisurely meal.

Jeanne Rogers

Long wait but worth it. Great biscuits with homemade jams; blackberry, strawberry, and peach. Service with a smile and country friendly.


It is definitely worth the wait. I had to wait 45 minutes but they have nice gift shops to look at to pass the time real quick. One of the best breakfast places I've ever been to

Marsha Lamberth

I suppose this is a good place to eat. It must be because I was told there would be an hour and 45 minute wait for a table. I declined to wait that long to eat. Guess I will never know for sure if the food is that good.

Saul Ballaine

The biscuits were amazing and free!! The food was even better. You get a lot for what you pay. Very busy but got us in fast. Worth the few minutes waiting for a table

Judy Elber

The food was amazing! The biscuits and jams delicious. I had the three meat sampler. I tried the meatloaf, ham, and fried catfish. All were good. My favorite was the ham! It was so salty, and cured to perfection. All the sides we had were yummy.

Caitlin Klaper

This was honestly one of the best overall meals I've had in a while. The biscuits were probably the best I've ever had. I got the pulled pork platter, which came with these delicious cornbread flapjacks underneath. Ended with banana pudding, which was a far cry from the normal "pudding" I've eaten before. Everything was delicious, and there was enough to take home for tomorrow!!

Sheryl McCormick

I was really disappointed with the food quality this time around. Two best items were creamed corn (just like Grandma's) and the biscuits with their jellies. I had to send two different sides back. Cole slaw tasted like some chemical cleaner and after I specifically asked if the greens were spicy and told no, I almost choked on them. Guess good help is hard to find.

Jeremy Whittingham

The wait was an hour and forty five minutes but worth it! We had food within 10 min of being seated. Food was amazing and larger portions at a reasonable price.

Sandy Mendizabal

Cozy cafe off the beaten path but SO worth it! The homemade biscuits and jams were amazing! The service was excellent and friendly staff, plenty of parking even for RV’s ! There are adjoining markets to purchase some homemade products too! A+++

Brett Passmore

When traveling, it's really important to find unique and creative places to spend your money. One of the most unique things about this is the drive to get here from I-40. Yes, the food is amazing, yes, the atmosphere is incredible. And for facility as old as this is, they are wheelchair accessible. That's a great thing. Please take time to visit those Priceless Cafe.

Darlene Hines

We shared a large platter breakfast plate with french toast, eggs over med, bacon/sausage mix and hash-brown casserole that was alThey're buttery and rich and delicious. I like how they were on the smaller side, too. And don't get me started on the preserves..they were out of this world.

William Clark

A great restaurant. Our waiter was Jason. He's was very knowledgeable and fun. The atmosphere was nice. I highly recommend you try this place. The food is A 1 and they knock everything out of the park. The gift shop is really nice. Many more things I could say but you really need to experience The Loveless and see for yourself.


We have been here twice now and both visits were excellent. Food is good and consistent. Service is always great. This is our go to breakfast on our way out of town, after visiting Nashville. We'll be back!

Diane B

We arrived here around 10 am on a Saturday. Plenty of parking spaces but the wait was about 1 1/2 hours. We took a stroll around the property, there are a few shops, a country market/gift shop and local artists shop, to spend some time browsing. Outside, there was a small table set up with complimentary water and lemonade. I was so excited to try the biscuits, they did not disappoint! The fried chicken and hash brown casserole are excellent. I wasn't a fan of the fried green tomatoes. Even though we were both full, we had to try the mixed berry cobbler, delicious! Prices are very reasonable and service was good considering how crowded they were. I would definitely return when I'm back in the area.

Philip Riegel

The wait is worth the experience. The food is very tasty and you get a good portion. I had the country ham and my wife the country fried steak. Be sure to have some of the delicious biscuits with their original preserves. Rachel our server was very pleasant and on top of things. I recommend The Loveless Cafe.

Danny Thompson

Best biscuits ever. Never had a bad meal here. Turnip greens and pot liquor is so good, I could eat a gallon bucket.

Brandon McMahan

The biscuits and the jams were amazing, I could go for just the biscuits. The service was great, and the food was delicious. They have by far the best peanut butter pie I've ever ate.


Very quaint and tasty restuarant. Staff was really friendly. Fried chicken and biscuits were delicious. Check out the cute locally made gift items in the shops behind the restaurant


Literally everything I have ever ordered from Loveless Cafe is amazing. I love everything about this place, from the quaint interior to the friendly staff. If I could eat here everyday I would probably be hundreds of pounds over weight. It's that good. If you are ever in Nashville it is worth the drive to eat at Loveless Cafe.

Steve Burress

One of my favorites for great southern food. I try to bring anyone visiting to Loveless!! Can’t go wrong with anything in the menu. Bring an appetite!!

Rebecca whitebread

Visited my son in Nashville, had to give it a try! Waitress Cindy was AMAZING, honestly one of the best servers I've ever had. Truly a down home feel. The food was good, biscuits awesome, but the service made it top notch!

alexandria curtis

We waited an hour and a half & then got seated with a waitress that didn’t like us apparently. She didn’t say hi or anything other than, “ what do you want to drink” we order everything before the people beside us & they got everything before we did. Biscuits & Jam & drinks. We ordered the famous ham and chicken fried steak. The steak was awesome. However, the ham was rotten. It smelled , tasted miserable, and was chewy. When we got our biscuits, it was three, still stuck together with no jam at all. Then the waitress just left. So, I found the manager & told him what was going on. He brought us new fresh biscuits with actual jam, replaced the ham, and brought us extra sides to make up for it. That’s why there’s 3 stars. Manager=awesome. Waitress=not

Terri Williams

The biscuits alone make this a go-to place. I loved the BlackBerry jam: not to sweet but dripping with flavor. I had the cheese grits, very creamy & tender. I also had the fried green tomato biscuit. A+ in flavor. My husband said it was the best soft cooked eggs he has ever had.

Candid President

The food was very good here. I do not usually like biscuits unless they are Pillsbury Grand..

Sandra Mitchell

Biscuits are amazing! They make 10000 a day so that tells you how good they are! Hash brown casserole is very good. And the cured ham is like none i have tasted before! Waitresses were very attentive and suggestuons were spot on. Worth any wait there is as pager will reach into their you can buy biscuit mix!

Jody May

Loveless Cafe never disappoints! Great place to bring out-of-towners. We got the Family Style Breakfast #1 and had so much sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, home fries, and fruit that they had to roll us out of there! Not to mention unlimited biscuits which was everyone's favorite at our table. Be prepared to wait up to 2 hours if you plan to go on Friday or Saturday. If you go on the weekend, I recommend you send someone ahead to save a spot on the can only call ahead to reserve on weekdays.

David Hampton

This place lives up to the hype and is well worth the wait! Jason provided great service as did the entire staff! Everything I ordered was perfect! The fried catfish was probably the best I've eaten! The sides were just as good! And the biscuits were addictive! Put the Loveless Cafe on your "must do" list. You wont regret it!

Lisa Wascher

I grew up in Nashville, and like the Bluebird Cafe, have no idea how this place got so famous. It's okay but nothing spectacular. Food and service is the average you would get at most meat and three type places. I sent my salad back though it was so awful (I'm really not that picky) and just ate the biscuits lol I guess you really shouldn't order a salad here since they are famous for their biscuits. The biscuits and jam are pretty good. Service was friendly and reasonably efficient.

rebecca mathews

This place was a slight detour from our route, but completely worth it! The food is amazing, I recommend the fried chicken and the meatloaf! Our waitress Rebecca was obviously very busy but still came to check on up multiple times. I wish we could have spend more time (and money) there. If you are in the area, it is definitely a must!

Brandi Jett

Nice breakfast spot. Long wait, but expected since it was a Sunday and this place is famous! Had high expectations for the food from reviews/articles but it was just average. Good food but nothing too special

Nakecia Fuller

We had the southern sampler platter that includes three meats and two sides. We chose chicken, catfish, and country ham as our sides. The mac and cheese was the BOMB! The turnip greens were delicious. We ended our meal with banana pudding. The pudding wasn’t very sweet and I personally didn’t like it but everyone around us loved it. I love, love, love, banana pudding and this was disappointing. The biscuits were good. The sweet tea was not sweet. Our wait time was 1 hour 20 minutes but it went by fast. We visited the shops on the property, took pictures, and talked so the time went by fast. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Dana Foust

Worth the iconic stop off the beaten path outside of downtown. Service was phenomenal! Food was ok. Have had better fried chicken and waffles.

Alicia Warden

We discovered this beautiful place while on a road trip and we fell in love! Delicious food. definitely eat the biscuts and you will feel like you have just had a slice of heaven! the staff was amazing and so polite. Any time we talk about going to Tennessee, we talk about going here again

Doug Shaw

If you really want southern comfort food,look no further. Just get in your car and bring your appetite with you. Lots of choices,all well prepared. Served on time. Just don't load up on free appetizer biscuits and homemade preserves because they are going to give you large servings on your plate. Our waitress was superb,but everyone we interacted with was great. Give yourself time to look around the shops . I ate more than I should have and bought more gifts than I should have. If you need your food with a modern twist ,save yourself a trip. If you want a great meal in a great environment, come on out.

Wes Geuther

Been here for lunch/dinner on many occasions. Stopped by for breakfast tho, and just as good. Got the Nashville sampler, and I can say that it is a 2 person meal. Unless you haven’t eaten anything in 48 hours, I would suggest sharing it. It is a great amount of food for 15 dollars as the pancakes are as big as your face, and there are three of them

Matthew Castillo

Food was great, and not too overpriced. It was neat to eat at an iconic place like this. I did not feel the southern hospitality, but everyone has their off days, so try the place for yourself.

Andrea Mullins

A great place to have a wedding. My nice had her wedding there. It was done up beautiful. Thanks to all would did the food and decorations. What a excellent job you did. The mc was excellent too.

Carolyn Stamper

Friendly service food was hot and the portions were more than enough. Love this place will eat here again. Also visit her little shops after eating.

shaun pryor

This was our first time in Nashville and we found this place by accident, great find.. Food was fantastic and the service was awesome Robyn really knows the menu. Food came out fast and it was well worth the wait.

Les Kafel

Tempted to give this 5 stars because of its iconic status. The food was good, about average for a roadside breakfast place. The decor, service, atmosphere, and location near the Natchez Trace Parkway are definitely a 5 star rating if a little too touristy. I did buy a t-shirt so what do I know

Marianne Dennis

I can't rave enough about this place!!! Our wait was 1 hour and 40 minutes for Sunday Brunch time but worth every second of it! We visited the different shops, played some of the games, and might have even sipped some blueberry wine while we waited.

Mark Bolling

Oh man, what all can I say?? We drove over from Memphis just to eat here, and I'm sure we weren't the only ones to cover a lot of miles to get to Loveless. The biscuits and preserves - life changing. Good luck not filling up on them before your meal arrives! I don't know what they do differently, but they're the best on the planet. My mother and I ordered the fried chicken, the chicken and dumplings, and a whole bunch of sides, and nothing disappointed. My absolute favorite is the fried chicken and the creamed corn. All of it is true southern cooking at its best, and I completely understand why people drive from far and wide and wait as long as it takes to make sure they get a table. All very well worth it. We'll most definitely be back again and again!!


The property around this place is cute. Food is average, but the biscuits are what is on point!! Be expected to have a wait. Not sure if we will be back or not. There are so many better and less crowded places around Nashville.

Malorie Harvey

Oh boy I don't even know where to begin! Lets just start by saying this place is FABULOUS. If I can give anyone any advice it would be to make sure you stop here when you go to Nashville. This place is like heaven on earth. Try it, I promise y'all will love it.

william skelton

If God ever made any better biscuits, he must have kept them for Himself. Southern cooking done right. Just go there already. It's worth the drive. Nice gift shop too.

Sheri Long

Food was excellent even with the 2.5 hour wait. it was so worth it. Our waiter was excellent as well. definitely returning

Susan Mueller

With very good Southern cuisine, located well outside Nashville, this isn’t a fancy place. It has Impressively loyal customers, though. Often there is a wait for a table.
