Went at an off time 2:00 in pm. Waited an hour. Food was absolutely delicious and much too plentiful. Brought home a doggy bag for the next day. Fun little stores surround so you can busy yourself there while you wait.

The Loveless Cafe first started serving its famous fried chicken and biscuits in 1951. A favorite spot to grab a good ole country breakfast for locals and visitors alike, today the Loveless Cafe serves more than 500,000 guests a year and makes up to 10,000 biscuits a day, using the original secret recipe.
