    The 3 of us sat at a corner table at 2:45pm. Waitress was efficient and accommodating. She recommended the hot chicken and all of us took her suggestions. The chicken came perfectly cooked and was crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Seasoning had just the right amount of spice to give the chicken lots of flavor. It was honestly the best fried chicken I’ve ever had. Sides of creamed corn and hash brown casserole were delicious and perfect with the chicken. We all loved our meal!

    I loved our breakfast at Loveless Cafe. The food was delicious. Our server, Allie, was wonderful. I wish I could give her 10 stars. I completely "get" what it is all about at Loveless. We cannot wait to go back. Definitely worth the drive and worth any wait!

    Not as good as remembered. The biscuits weren’t hot and banana pudding was tasteless. I wouldn’t recommend the pudding. Vegetables were good as was the taste of the chicken but it was a little tough. All in all if you’ve never been you need to try it at least once.

    The place was loud. But Biscuits were amazing so was the fried chicken but one of us barely had any meat on our chicken! Okra was ok one of us got maybe 10 cold pieces the other got a bowl full of hot fresh. Consistency wasn’t going on across the board but loved the outside atmosphere and food was very good.

    Was so excited to get here and was very disappointed. My chicken was very dry. Mac n cheese was good but slightly warm at best. Atmosphere and little shops are cute and the history is interesting. Glad we made the stop but would have loved better chicken.

    I believe it must have just been an off night. It took over an hour from when we were seated to order and receive food, greens and mashed potatoes were lukewarm at best, we ordered fried green tomatoes and they came out after our meal had been served. The waiter stated oh that’s what usually happens the appetizer comes out after the meal, they were cold so they had been sitting. We noticed other people that came in after us were served before

    Biscuits are great. Country Ham also quite good but portion moderate. Sides--hash browns and fried green tomatoes--were mediocre. A combination of country ham and fried chicken would be a great improvement.
