The Loveless Cafe

For more than 65 years, the Loveless Cafe has been offering families and friends a place where they can enjoy a scratch-made Southern meal and reconnect with each other around the table.

In 1951, Lon and Annie Loveless opened their front doors to serve fried chicken and biscuits to hungry travelers on Highway 100. Their homemade Southern dishes became so popular that they converted their home into a restaurant and built a 14-room motel for overnight guests. 

Given these roots of big-hearted hospitality and a mouth-watering menu, it is no wonder that the Loveless Cafe has become a Nashville landmark. Their iconic neon sign welcomes more than half a million visitors a year who are seeking a chance to slow down and savor home-cooked meals. So many people come to taste the biscuits that put them on the map that they’re now making up to 10,000 every day!

Stories about the Loveless Cafe continue to be told around the world from USA Today to the Martha Stewart show.

There’s a lot of love to go around at the Loveless Cafe. They are proud to be a cherished ingredient in Nashville’s rich history.
