Before going to the Music City Bowl, we had breakfast at the Loveless Cafe, which is about 15 minutes outside of downtown Nashville. We got there about 8:30am and had no trouble getting a table. Everything was great – look at the tall biscuits they serve (below)!
The interior has signed photographs of country music performers…
Here’s the exterior. The cafe/motel looks like it’s getting built-up a little too much – there’s now some sort of a barbecue hut next to this building, and on the other side of the parking lot is where some shops have moved in (the motel isn’t functioning now and they’ve repurposed that space for retail). I think much of the charm originally came from the quaintess of the place…I hope they retain that rather than making it ultra-touristy. It’s one thing to realize that a lot of your business comes in from non-locals, but it’s another to try to become Cracker Barrel. Anybody can drive thirty miles for a Cracker Barrel.
Isn’t the sign great!?
We had a really nice time, and then drove over to see the Music City Bowl – next post!
