Overview

Beginning as a party house in the forties, the then private home had one of the largest hardwood living room floors around, perfect for dancing the night away. In the fifties it was known as the Harpeth Valley Tea Room owned by Lon and Annie Loveless. In 1951 it became the Loveless Cafe and in the seventies and eighties "the modest roadside eatery that once had been Nashille's secret went national. Discovered by food writers . . . the Loveless found itself recognized as a precious cultural institution." As fast food gained popularity travelers were looing for old-fashioned country cookin'.

The Loveless Cafe is like stepping back in time, where the biscuits and jams are made from scratch and the pork is cooked until the meat falls off the bone. It's an institution in Nashville and a favorite destination of celebrities and locals alike. The Loveless offers an authentic experience that reminds people of their childhood and of great southern traditions.

    Awesome Cookbook

    I am a cookbook collector and if I bought this one for no other reason than to get the recipe for the Candied Bacon, it was worth every penny I spent. All of the recipes sound good, but the Candied Bacon is to die for! Buy it.

    where are the biscuits

    the only reason for 2 stars is there is no biscuit recipe as stated in the name of the book. The rest of the book is quite good but would have rated 4 stars with the biscuit recipe.

    I was misled

    On the cover of the cookbook (on the ad) it says 'biscuits' which is why I bought the book. When I received the cookbook, the word biscuit is no longer in the title and they do not have a recipe for biscuits.--I was very disappointed
