There are 144 threads on here that mention the Loveless Café in Nashville, but this one is the only one titled "Loveless Café".
I lived in Brentwood TN for 4 years and visit Franklin TN frequently since my daughter and her family live there but this past Friday was my first visit to the Loveless Café and I said to myself, "Why didn't you go there earlier, you dummy?"
Let me report that the place is alive & well and apparently prospering despite having been closed, sold and re-opened a while ago. On the Friday after Christmas, the wait for a table at 10:30 AM was 2 hours! Normally, I wouldn't wait that long at ANY restaurant, but I just had to find out what all the Hoopla was about. We spent the time browsing in the shops there, sampled some of the snacks and learned you can put the name Loveless Motel on practically ANY piece of saleable merchandise!
We were seated in about 1 hour and 45 minutes and it was worth the wait!
Here come the biscuits 1st thing out!
The biscuits were a surprise since I didn't expect them to be small and more like a roll in texture but that was not a bad thing. They were very good but just not what I expected. The Signature Jams & Preserves - OUTSTANDING. I ordered the Pit-Cooked Pork Barbeque & Eggs with Grits AND a side order of the Pimento Cheese with Fried Green Tomato Biscuits. It was a large helping of BBQ & Eggs OE. I took 1/2 the BBQ home with us along with some leftover biscuits and had that the next day.
My Bride had the Waffle loaded with Pecans Strawberries and Whipped Cream and couldn't finish it.
The server was great and friendly.
I won't wait another 33 years to go back again!
