Biscuits and Preserves
Biscuits (4) and Gravy
Great place, first time and will definitely be back!
The biscuits were delicious, but the hot chicken was way over cooked and no one liked it. My kids enjoyed their fried chicken.
Great experience! Pleased with the COVID protocols. Food was hot and tasty. Our waiter, Owen, had the beast energy.
I had such a wonderful experience at the loveless cafe. Cindy was our server and we were immediately greeted with outstanding hospitality and kindness. I ordered the garden omelet and a fried green tomato/pimento cheese/egg biscuit. Speaking of biscuits, the bread was sooooo good. So soft and buttery, and the preserves were delicious. The omelet was so yummy, just added a bit of hot sauce on top to complete it. The biscuit with the fried soft egg was top tier, a southern delicacy. I would recommend this place to anyone.
I was a little disappointed with the food this time. We haven’t been to Loveless in a while and I was pretty excited to come back. I ordered the fried chicken and it was overdone/almost burnt and very dry inside. The breading had no flavor. The biscuits and sides were good. Just upset that their staple wasn’t prepared well. Hope it was just an off day for them.
We were in town to visit family and of course eat at Loveless. As always the food was amazing. My wife loves the greens and I go for the CFS. I had the peanut butter pie and she had the chess pie both were great. Our new daughter in law had the chocolate pecan pie and hers was amazing as well
Our first visit. Quite impressed. Very nice. Service Great! Food Great! Will be back! Thanks!
Food was good, service was great! Extremely attentive and upfront concerning my major food allergy!!!
We love the food at Loveless and yesterday did not disappoint. 5 stars all around!!!
It was our first time to visit here. We will definitely be back! It was some of the best food I've ever had and I loved the experience.
We always visit when we come to Nashville. Great fried chicken!
Loveless never disappoints! Food and service was outstanding!
Food was delicious, fast service, welcoming and cozy atmosphere
Loveless cafe is a Nashville staple. You absolutely must visit the cafe and the adjoining shops for a Nashville tradition not to be topped ! Make a reservation for an easy short wait !
Nice to be able to make a reservation!
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!
Good homestyle cooking and friendly service. Lots of choices, too.
Danielle was our server she was very sweet and helped us with anything we needed. I brought my friends who were visiting from out of town to loveless and they had all good things to say. Great experience
The Loveless Cafe is a treasure and such a pleasure to visit! The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the food is outstanding and reasonable. My friends and I will visit again and take others along.
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.
Everyone was very friendly and the food was delicious!
We are from Missouri. We had been to Loveless before and we were in town again w our daughter and a friend from Missouri. We wanted to give them a treat so we came back to Loveless Cafe. Before you had 2 fans, now you have 4. Amazinf
Graeaf food and great service.
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!!
Great place to take out of town visitors for breakfast. Platters are huge. Love their hash brown casserole!
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.
It was fabulous as always.. Don't miss a chance to enjoy a meal or two or three here.. It's great food, service and a good ole Southern experience..
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.
We enjoyed our visit to loveless cafe. It was our third time there and enjoyed everything about it. No doubt we’ll come back again thanks
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.
Great time ghere
Awesome! The hot chicken was amazing. The garlic mashed potatoes were TASTY!
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.
Great food. We absolutely love the biscuits! Great service too.
Loveless Café has special meaning for us, so we chose it for our Valentine’s Day dinner. The meal was delicious - especially the biscuits and jam!
Awesome food and service! I recommend a making a reservation.
The meal was wonderful, food came quickly and they even sent home extra biscuits. Can’t wait to go again
