Eat Out. Loveless Cafe.

Hello from Nashville, Tennessee! The Loveless Cafe stands out even among the abundance of delicious food available in the south. They're famous for their biscuits made from scratch by Carol Fay. Check her out (and her Got Biscuits? T-Shirt) on Conan. The buttery beauties are served before every meal at Loveless, with homemade preserves--strawberry, peach, and blackberry. Breakfast is served all day, but their lunch and dinner options are enticing enough to turn down pancakes for. Juicy fried chicken, salty country ham, fried okra, hash brown casserole, macaroni and cheese, hush puppies, catfish ... the list goes on. I had a BLT (toasted pale wheat bread, mayonnaise, deep green lettuce and a generous helping of crisp greasy bacon) with fried green tomatoes (yum!) and sweet iced tea--something I can't get enough of. You literally have to say "unsweet tea" here if you want what we in L.A. consider "iced tea". The whole menu is comfort food precisely how you hope for it in Dixie.

If you haven't had enough by the time you leave the cafe, there's a gift shop next door which sells everything from magnets to preserves to RC Cola and MoonPies, and of course the famous biscuit mix!
