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.

Wow - after a long and very early flight from Boston, Ma we found this place for breakfast. The most friendly service I have experienced in a long time. Breakfast made to order - good portions and very reasonably priced. It was nice to see where the locals go.

We passed this on the way back and forth from Downtown to our hotel several times and decided to eat there Easter Morning...... It was great! The fried bologna I had harden my arteries as I ate, but who cares??? The biscuits were the best I have ever put in my mouth....and I've eaten a bunch!

We ordered a patty-melt and a fried baloney sandwich. Both were fantastic. Service was great and made you feel at home. Hours are from 10 pm to 2pm.

If you are a fan of diners this is your place. Breakfast is a busy time here and you might have to wait a bit, but it is worth it. The cook staff are experienced and turn out the orders promptly. Service was a bit slow this morning because only one waitress was working the whole place. Food is very... More

One of those diners where time has stood still, and very friendly servers. French toast was pretty good.

We stop here every time we come through nashville. It looks super rough on the outside, but the food and atmosphere is great! Get the patti melt or the chili they are to die for!

We wanted to have breakfast in a diner and this could not have been a better spot. Brenda and Sheri treat you like family. The food was great and we felt like family there. The pancakes were fluffy and light. The western omelet was tasty and huge and the coffee strong. We would return again in a heart beat.
