  • Don't believe the haters! This place is as good for breakfast as for dinner. Worth the drive. Quintessential Nashville fare if you're from out of town. Biscuits a Must!
  • The caf was established in the early 1950s as Lon & Anne Loveless served southern cooking to travelers on Highway 100. It once included a motel, which closed in 1985.
  • Try the biscuits!
  • Gonna try the famous Biscuits and Blackberry Jam
  • Even though their legendary biscuits tend to be the main focus, don't miss out on other items such as the fried chicken and homemade desserts. [Eater 18 Member]
  • Down home southern cooking at its finest. On the outskirts of town..
  • Biscuits come by the pile. Don't order extra. (psst..they are free)
  • If you don't take the cheesy photo outside, your trip isn't complete
  • By the way....the biscuits are the exact same recipe Evan...they don't have new ones since carol Fay passed away.
  • The worst meal I had here was DELICIOUS! Good southern food for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Love their country ham breakfast, biscuits, and red-eye gravy.
  • Loveless is a great place, but the name is a bit of a misnomer- I've got a great love for it and I'm sure you will come to have one as well.
  • Go on a weekday and you won't wait
  • They make an average of 7,000 biscuits a day!
  • The southern sampler breakfast with hash brown casserole. Awesome.
  • Chicken Fried Steak. To die for!
  • Take some time to check out the little shops before or after you eat
  • Helps if you spell it right!
  • Try the hash brown casserole, grits, fried chicken and obviously the biscuits!
  • Fried chicken and all the sides are delicious! We were a bit disappointed in the homemade pies. Not as good as we hoped for.
  • If the line is too long, just order to go and eat at the picnic table under the shade next to the restaurant!
