Restaurant details
Description: This restaurant was recently moved to Nashville from Michigan. It is from the 1920's and the interior is totally intact. It has a fudge and candy shop in the front and the back is the restaurant with all the original wall paneling, wood booths, and period lighting. It is like going back in time. They serve mostly sandwiches, salads, soup. We stopped in on a recent visit to Nashville and ordered the soup and panini sandwich combo for $9 - a very generous serving and tasty. They have many types of ice cream and sundaes. We had the hot fudge sundae and it was wonderful. It was served in a large, old-fashioned ice cream/soda glass and had lots of wonderful hot fudge all through it. We will return here whenever we visit Nashville. It is open mostly during the day - not for late diners.

Sweet shop and great place for a quick lunch. I am a fan of the grilled cheese and tomato soup combo. Milkshakes are extra tasty, and service is generally quick. Cute place for a party of 3 or less. Small tables/booths.

This restaurant, which originally existed in Port Huron, Michigan, was a sad trip down memory lane for us as we visited on December 19, 2013, and understand they were to close the next day. The food was better than we remember it growing up in Port Huron - i only hope someone else reopens it as the decor is truly... More

This is the best homemade fudge we've ever had. They give out samples. Our favorites were butter beer and chocolate with caramel and sea salt. When we got home, I called and had them ship some to us. Well worth it.

What a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of Broadway. The interior is all wood booths with beautiful decorating and warmth. The food was very good, the potato salad is outstanding, the service was excellent. Everyone is very friendly and inviting. It was a great place for lunch and a break from touring. Lunch was so filling that I... More

Had a quick lunch at Diana's and was very pleasantly surprised. The tomato bisque soup was superb! The 3 cheese grilled cheese was excellent also. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. An overall excellent experience.

We stopped in for a quick afternoon snack and shared the nacho appetizer and a personal pan pizza. The food was great and the service was even better. We finished up with a hot fudge sundae. This is a great place to stop on the strip for a snack or ice cream!

Our group was looking for a light lunch away from the crowds, noise and heat. Diana's was recommended by a tour guide at the Studio B. This sweet shop sits right on Broadway Street among the Honky Tonk fronts. Walk through the sweets to the back and find a section of tables and wooden booths. Sandwiches, soups and salads were...

Convinced to eat here by my teenage son, I think he was most attracted by its emptiness. The chaos of Broadway was wearing him down and he was looking for calm. Two others were eating, that meant very attentive and friendly service. Fast, reasonably priced, and absolutely nothing to write home about. The meatloaf sandwich was filling and reasonably tasty,...

Our group was looking for a quick lunch and peeked into this small storefront. A throw back with the candy store in front and a restaurant in the rear. We had sandwiches and sweet tea and it was just great. I highly recommend for a fast bite and wonderful service.
