Today we went to Loveless Café for breakfast and met my cousin and her boss. We had a wonderful meal. When I first heard about Loveless I thought it had something to do with Patty Loveless since she’s a country star and it’s in Nashville but apparently it has nothing whatsoever to do with her or her family. It apparently opened over half a century ago and I’m not sure Patty Loveless is even that old!
You can order individual meals or family meals which is a set price per person, depending on which one you order. We got the more expensive version at $12.95 per person but it was well worth every penny! They bring family sized servings to the table and everyone can chow down. We had bacon and country ham, fruit, grits, gravy, hash brown casserole, scrambled eggs, the best home made biscuits and home made preserves you ever put in your mouth. They bring strawberry, peach and blackberry to the table and will also bring you apple butter if you want it. They bring you sawmill gravy for your biscuits and red eye gravy for your ham. As my hubby says, it will make your tongue slap your brain!
You can order from their website at: http://www.lovelesscafe.com/ They ship all over. They will sell you their biscuit mix but won’t give you the recipe! The last time we went they had told us that only one employee at a time knows the actual recipe to safeguard their secret. Their main biscuit maker had been with them something crazy like 30 years I think. I think she passed away last year so I’m assuming they must have had an assistant biscuit maker to take her place because they are still awesome!
They have a little country store where you can buy the preserves and coffee cups and all kinds of shirts and stuff. They also have a huge restored barn on the premises where they occasionally have concerts and stuff and they rent it out for like weddings and stuff. I know our oldest went there last year I think for a song writer’s thing where they come and perform their songs. She said it was really nice.
After our wonderful breakfast we had the crane carry us out to our car! I wish… We went to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel after that. Since I spent the day playing tourist and then drove back to Atlanta this evening, I am going to put the pictures of the Loveless Café in today and I will try to do the ones from Opryland Hotel tomorrow.
