“A Nashville Tradition Since 1951.”

For more than 65 years, the Loveless Cafe has been offering families and friends a place where they can enjoy a home-cooked, Southern meal and reconnect with each other around the table. It all started in 1951 when Lon and Annie Loveless opened their front doors to sell fried chicken and biscuits to hungry travelers on Highway 100 in Nashville. Their homemade Southern dishes became so popular that they converted their home into a restaurant and built a 14-room motel for overnight guests. Lon stayed busy managing the motel and curing and smoking country hams, while Annie whipped up made-from-scratch biscuits and preserves in the kitchen. Today, so many people come to taste the famous biscuits that the cafe is now making up to 10,000 every day! Since the early days with Lon and Annie, the Loveless Cafe has continued to add new ways for visitors to enjoy the Nashville landmark, while always staying true to its Southern roots. The motel rooms that Lon managed are now quaint shops full of signature gifts for visitors to take home. For larger gatherings, two event spaces were added – the Barn and the Harpeth Room – where the Loveless Events team infuses its distinctive Southern hospitality into creating one-of-a-kind weddings, celebrations, meetings and more. The dedicated catering team also goes on the road, bringing its broad talents to kitchens, offices and venues throughout the Nashville area. The Loveless Cafe is proud to be a cherished ingredient in Nashville’s rich history. Visit www.lovelesscafe.com for more information. Reservations are not required, but they do accept reservations during non-peak hours here: https://www.exploretock.com/loveless-cafe-nashville

My first time to the Loveless Cafe did not disappoint - from the historical architecture, the friendly service I could hear the sounds of what it would've been like back in the 1950's. The food... Read more
