Martha Stewart called the breakfast she ate there the "best she ever had."
Celebrities and dignitaries from around the world stop by to enjoy the world's greatest made from scratch biscuits and country suppers.
It's the Loveless Cafe. A Nashville Landmark since 1951, when Lon and Annie Loveless began selling their delicious fried chicken and biscuits from their front door to travelers on Highway 100. While updates have been made to the original restaurant, and the beautiful grounds that surround the cafe, one thing hasn't changed: their penchant for creating the most mouth-watering Southern-style food.
We waited over an hour for a seat, along with lots of other folks. We sat in wooden rockers that were gathered on the green grass, a circle of strangers with hungry tummies. At a quiet moment, to my surprise, Hudson approached the center of the chair formation, stood tall, and suddenly began singing his ABC's, very loudly with a proud smile. A true Leo...he loves to be the center of attention, and took delight in performing for the waiting Loveless guests.
And then we ate. And ate & ate & ate some more. There was homemade creamed corn, country green beans, fluffy mashed potatoes with gravy and fried green tomatoes. There was crispy fried chicken. And last, but certainly not least, there were delicious, buttery biscuits with homemade peach, strawberry, and blackberry preserves.
It was just about the best Southern meal I've ever eaten.
