When is the best time to come to avoid long waits?

As many folks know, the Loveless Cafe is a very popular destination for locals and visitors alike. This means we can often experience extended wait times for our guests. To minimize the time waiting for your next meal at the Loveless, we suggest visiting during non-peak periods. This typically means a Monday-Thursday visit for early breakfast between 7-9am, a late lunch after 2pm or an early supper before 6pm. Weekday holidays are an exception to the suggestions above and experience higher traffic volumes than most weekdays. For more information and frequently asked questions about planning your next visit to the Loveless Cafe, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page. We look forward to serving you.

Natchez Trace Parkway

While here, make plans to spend a little time on the Natchez Trace Parkway, a 444-mile scenic parkway that starts in Natchez Mississippi and ends right at our front door! The natural beauty of the parkway is great for a scenic drive, a leisurely bike ride or even an adventurous hike.


The Natchez Trace Parkway commemorates an ancient trail that connected southern portions of the Mississippi River to salt licks in today’s central Tennessee. Over the centuries, the Choctaw, Chickasaw and other American Indians left their marks on the Trace.


The Natchez Trace Parkway experienced its heaviest use from 1785 to 1820 by the “Kaintuck” boatmen that floated the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to markets in Natchez and New Orleans. They sold their cargo and boats and began the trek back north on foot to Nashville and points beyond. Today, visitors can experience this All-American Road through hiking, biking, horseback riding and camping. If you’re looking for suggestions for Bed & Breakfasts to stay along the way, visit our friends at the Natchez Trace Bed and Breakfast Reservation Service.
