This was our 2nd time here. I actually shared a meal with my daughter and was still unable to try any of their famous desserts because I was stuffed.

My boyfriend was in town for some work training and we were meeting up in Nashville after he was done. He brought me two pieces of cake from here and both were absolutely huge and equally amazing.

They have plenty of stuff to serve me in my gluten-free, dairy-free world, but they also have stuff I can't eat that looks wonderful. There is a bar attached.... More

Excellent food and wait staff, they were so kind and courteous. The home fries were terrific. As soon as you walk in you're looking at fresh cakes and pies. I think you could gain weight just looking at it
