A favorite spot to grab a good ole country breakfast for locals and visitors alike, today the Loveless Cafe serves more than 500,000 guests a year and makes up to 10,000 biscuits a day, using the original secret recipe.

If you want to really experience country ham, red eye gravy and biscuits at their best--Loveless is THE place in middle Tennessee. Just a short drive out Hwy 100 -- a beautiful trip

“this place is a must-visit!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is more than just a place for good food....and that's saying a lot since the food is VERY good. You can spend some quality time walking around and make sure to visit the shops. I bought a Loveless Cafe coffee mug that holds about 20 ounces of coffee! I love it and use it every day. This place is a gem but be prepared to be FULL when you are done with your meal. This is simple, good, southern, family-style food and it's delish! I particularly loved the homemade jam.

“A scary rain storm, got lost on the way back, and it was still worth it!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We drove through a scary rain storm with tornado warnings, got way, way lost on the way back, and it was still worth it! Many folks recommended Loveless and they were right! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast. I ordered an omelette because I didn't want a lot of food but apparently at this restaurant there's no such thing as 'a little bit of food'. We asked for some of their heavenly home made biscuits and jam to go and enjoyed those for days afterward. Definitely go here!

“Yum!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This place is a little piece of heaven. There were several quaint little shops with local artist's work, a smokehouse store with jams, meats and stuff. The restaurant was awesome. It had a nice atmosphere but most of all the food was delicious.
