If you adjust your expectations to a diner that looks like it's been in the same spot forever...you'll be on track to enjoying the Hermitage. The menu is posted on the wall. The staff is friendly...and obviously there's a lot of joy in this place. The diner food was ok...but the experience of the place is what sells it. Just... More

Just ran across this place looking for a breakfast restaurant when on vacation. The food was great and service. Just your classic greasy spoon dinner. I wish there were more of these still around. I had biscuits and gravy and ham egg & cheese on toast and it was great. My wife liked the waffle and home fries.

You will feel like you just found a treasure chest when you go here! I honestly can't even remember what local recommended this gem, but boy am I glad they did! The cafe is only open from the evening hours until late morning - catering to those that need to get some good eats in their stomach to soak up... More

We were in Nashville, TN, right around midnight... and we were hungry for some good food! Most places are closed at this late hour, but the Hermitage Café saved us from boring fast food. It's small, but the food was amazing.

This little out of the way place was recommended by the bartender at Hotel Preston. We love breakfast and prefer to eat a local places instead of chain restaurants. The Hermitage is now at the top of our list for breakfast. The waitresses and cook are very friendly and like to cut up with you. They have a vey unique... More

We were in Nashville for a convention, and arrived late. Hermitage Café was open from 10pm to 1am, which served our needs perfectly. We arrived with a group of about 30 and we filled every seat in the place. The prices were great. The menu offers the standard breakfast choices and burgers options. The menu is posted on the walls,... More

Don't judge a book by its cover, but turn the page and enjoy. That's what I did after seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor and I don't regret stopping and getting a good meal, being treated like family, talking to complete strangers who seemed as old friends, and laughing a lot. Learned a lot about the history of the Heritage... More

While we were staying in a hotel nearby, we passed by here on the way to our conference. Stopped in for lunch and it was very nice. Great service and excellent food.

Hermitage Cafe serves breakfast all day, and lunch. The hours are bit odd, but whatever works. The wait staff had my wife and I busting at the seems with laughter the entire time. All I can say comfort food at it's best. Definitely one of many Nashville's small gems of great mom and pop places. Give it a try food... More

Old - time home style diner just within blocks of downtown Nashville. No frills, just great food and everybody is family. Love it.
