Loveless Memories

92 Hi Loveless Cafe-   My 4 kids and I embarked on a massive roadtrip this summer driving from Dallas, TX all the way up to Boston, MA. We stopped everywhere inbetween. We stopped on a whim at your place after seeing the exit on 40. What an awesome surpise was awaiting us! We were SO road weary by that point (on our way home after 3 weeks on the road!) and stopping there really lifted our spirits. Here are a couple of pics from our visit.   Thanks-   Melissa Kenny

IMG_1028 I’ve never had the honor of visiting the loveless cafe in person but i already feel like it’s part of the family.  My little sister decided to go to college in Nashville.  Knowing my love of all things baked she sent me a jar of your apple butter.  I instantly fell in love! I remember the first bite of it on a warm waffle. The tangy freshness instantly transported me to my childhood.  Here in Florida we don’t have the luxury of cool fall afternoons apple picking with the family. However, thanks to my Loveless Cafe apple butter, just for a moment on that August afternoon our swaying palm trees turned into majestic apple trees and... READ MORE >>

106 Our family visited Loveless Cafe and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!  We had a wonderful waiter who made it a memorable experience.  He entertained our daughters with scientific “magic” experiments and took the time to do a special drawing of our little one, Mya.  Which is the photo attached.  We traveled from California to vistit family and were lucky enough to see your world famous establishment.  The meal and atmosphere were all that we expected and more.  Thank you for the memories.   Christine Koedel   Mike, Christine, Mya and Sara Koedel, Trabuco Canyon, CA & Bob & Linda Koedel, Franklin, TN

MMP-SIgn1-150x150 Dear Loveless Cafe, My friend and I have visited and spent a week in Nashville most every year now for the past 10 years. Our first visit to The Loveless was 6 or 7 years ago and we’ve been back every time we’re in town. In fact, we eat at The Loveless several times during the week we’re in Nashville! I cannot get enough of your homemade biscuits and peach preserves! We had the privilege of meeting and talking to Miss Carol about her famous biscuits. What a fabulous lady she was! Oh, and the watermelon ribs…amazing! We were a little apprehensive to try the ribs by their name alone, but one bite of those incredibly tender,... READ MORE >>

Loveless Cafe Sign-Photo Credit-Miller Mobley150 We were on vacation in central Tennessee to celebrate my 60th birthday. Our plans included a show at the Blue Bird Café, so my husband said, “Find a restaurant in Nashville you’d like to have your birthday dinner at and we’ll go!” I contemplated steakhouses, Italian restaurants, etc., but decided what I really wanted was fried green tomatoes. My search for country style cooking led me to the Loveless Café, and we were so glad it did! Our experience there was top-notch, from the wait staff to the food to the prices – all were excellent! The smoked pork chops (3 on each plate!) satisfied us for dinner, and we had enough left over for... READ MORE >>
