We planned on going to the Loveless Cafe afterwards, just a few miles further up Hwy 100 and close to the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway. It was almost 3pm when we got there and we knew it was likely going to be busy, but there was already a 1 hr 30 min wait! We messed around outside, tried out the rocking chairs, played some cornhole and bought some bbq rub in the store to kill time. The Loveless Cafe has been serving food since 1951 and is mostly famous for it's biscuits, preserves, ham and red-eye gravy. It has won many awards and has even been visited by fellow Brit, Princess Anne :) There are lots of signed photos of many of the celebrities who have visited in the entryway.
The time passed quickly and we were led to our table.
The husband and me had been before for breakfast, so we were looking forward to trying the supper options this time. I was excited to see Mimosa in a Mason Jar on the drinks menu, I can't say no to some champers whatever time of day it is and a mason jar isn't exactly small :) Thanks to the husband who volunteered to drive home!
I'm going to head back to this Park to run the trails when I start training for my next Ragnar which is a Trail Relay in AZ. I'd recommend today's day out to anybody with kids and dogs, Tennessee is beautiful, but even more so when the sun is shining! So grateful that the forecast rain didn't appear. Looking forward to continuing our Sunday tradition of hiking and eating our way round Middle Tennessee :)
