Just where I chose do dine for my 60th birthday breakfast and enjoyed it thoroughly. Can't wait to go back next time I'm in Nashville! Country Ham and hash brown casserole were yummy!

Always the best tasting homemade food around Nashville. Anytime you are in the area, you have to make a stop at Loveless Café for some good old country cooking. And those biscuits...….mmmmmmmmmm.

Wonderful Atmosphere!. We had reservations thru Open Table for 6pm. We ended up being about seven minutes late Because of traffic. But I called the restaurant a few minutes before appointment, and they said no worries, they always hold tables for 15 minutes past the appointment time and I was good because I called to let them know. Great customer service and amazing food!

As always the Loveless doesn’t disappoint! Their biscuits are AMAZING and the service is phenomenal. They run the restaurant like a well oiled machine! Make sure to visit the shops and take a selfie in front of their sign!!

Smoked turkey was cold and dry but the biscuits were great, maybe we just went at the wrong time (4:30), might try again another time but wife is hesitant and I completely understand.

Excellent southern fried. We enjoyed the fried pork chops, chicken, biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy. My son said it was the best fried chicken he ever ate. I had some of his and have to agree. All the food is homemade and is scrumptious. We got there at 2:00 pm on a Thursday and didn’t have to wait at all. Great staff, great service and very friendly.

I have wanted to visit the Loveless for years. The cafe did not disappoint. The service was exceptional, our waiter treated my husband to a pice of pecan pie for his 50th birthday. The biscuits were great as well as the country ham and red eye gravy. Would love to visit again.

Make a reservation and get ready to enjoy your meal! This quaint, down home, comfort food place is also worth the wait if you just show up! Enjoy the home style biscuits with a sampling of peach, blackberry and blueberry preserves. The watermelon ribs and pit BBQ pork was delectable. The aroma of the smokehouse will make you want more! If you’re lucky enough to have Bruce as your server, you’ll be in for a treat! Oh and if you have room for dessert, the pecan pie is awesome!

The sides are canned and overcooked in a steam table. The fried chicken is cooked in a deep fat fryer and has no flavor. The biscuits are okay but not what I would describe as good. The blueberry jam was excellent, not too sweet. Once or never is definitely enough.

For a place that states it began with fried chicken and biscuits, you should do that well. Unfortunately, the white meat was dry and the dark just tasted bad. Neither had any detectable seasoning.
The biscuits were bitter.
The sides were okay, but I could have gone to Cracker Barrel and gotten food that tasted better for half the price.
You're paying for saying you ate at the Loveless Cafe.

Dinner with the kids before skating practice. Service at the Loveless is always quick and friendly! The wait for the table is the longest part but we’ve been going on Wednesdays at 4 lol I know super early dinner but it was before the kids’ skating practice so we were sat immediately. You also have the option of making reservations on open table which is nice. You get an abundance of food, a pile of biscuits, and the sweet tea is always flowing! I will say weekends are usually super busy so waiting for a table takes forever but there are plenty of games around and shops to visit while you’re waiting. Once you’re seated we’re usually done within 30 minutes.

There is NOTHING you can say bad about the Loveless Cafe! While waiting to get a table look at the signed pictures of famous people who have ate at the Loveless. The servers are very friendly, love to chat for a minute, and service is amazing. The biscuits are to die for and the food is amazing! After breakfast or dinner stroll around the different shops. You will not be disappointed if you make the Loveless Cafe your destination!
