Looking for a late and light dinner we pulled up at the Hermitage Cafe and worried a little about the atmosphere. It's no frills. However, we were warmly greeted by the busy waitress and seated quickly. Our drinks came out quickly, and orders were taken after we read the menu on the wall. And then the food arrived and it...

We stopped in after a night on the town and were pleasantly surprised! There isn't one aspect of this café that tries to WOW you but they serve good food at reasonable prices so I cant complain at all. Our entire group was satisfied and we would've definitely gone back if we were in town longer. My bacon/cheddar omelet w/... More

My husband and I hesitated to go here because of a few of the negative reviews. I'm so glad we decided to go anyway. The food is awesome! If you are looking for a hoyte toyte, high falutin, high maintenance place, go somewhere else. The staff was great. We loved it and my husband is the pickiest eater on earth.

Well, as odd as it may seem, this "dive" (and I mean that affectionately) was an interesting introduction to Nashville. We are relocating our daughter here. We went for breakfast the first morning there. Looks to be family run. Interesting characters coming through the back door. Hours are nuts too. Think they are open until 1:30 pm. Reopens at 10...

Went for a late night dinner, what a mistake! Steak had no flavor even with A1 sauce, more grizzle than meat, French fries were barely cooked, coleslaw was ok and no straws given with drinks. I guess I ordered the wrong meal! Service was good.

Being a local and living downtown, it's good to have a late night option for food. However, I have finally had enough of putting up with a waitress that has a horrible attitude and, it's not only every once in a while, but EVERY time. If she hates her job this much, you'd think she would go somewhere else or... More

Their shirt says it all, "sobering up Nashville since ~1995" From William hung on the jukebox to an all restaurant sing along of Baby by Justin Beiber this place never ceases to put a smile on my face! And the food is great and cheap too!

Went to eat here after a show at the Ryman! Felt like I went back in time. This place opens at ten...when most of Nashville's restaurants are closing. The patty melt was awesome! We found out about this place from locals hanging out on Broadway! Glad we found this place! When we were leaving the place was packed!

I asked for a simple breakfast of pancakes and over medium eggs. The purpose of getting eggs over medium is the richness of the yolk...well two of the yolks were broke, the other had runny whites and they were all COLD! The pancakes were thick enough to choke a horse. The coffee was good and the waitress did try to... More
