Check my reviews and notice I'm rarely this low. I recently went to a holiday party in the barn at Loveless Cafe. It was freezing cold. The food was cold and terrible. Appetizers- worse fried green tomato ever. Wine poor. It was disappointing to say...More

Everyone visits The Loveless Cafe for his history. Go on "off" times to get the best service, and really be able to enjoy your visit. Breakfast is the best meal of the day.
