Testimonials (We won "They Love us on Yelp!")


Jonathan G Yelp

 Holy delicious. I went here for brunch before heading to the airport which was poor timing. I wanted to go back as soon  as I walked out. The setting and atmosphere is really cozy  and at home. I will forever dream about the bananas foster pancakes. They were perfect. Lightly crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. They had the best biscuits in Nashville and they make a home made jam that is to die for. They also sell it but I was only bringing a carry on and I will admit I'm still sad about it. They also have an awesome iced coffee cocktail with whiskey. Flo was an awesome waitress and told us all the best items to get and she was not wrong. 10 out of 10 must stop when in Nashville A

Fabulous spot for dinner before the Ryman!! Everyone raved about their food. The Shrimp and Grits are to-die-for!! Waitress was wonderful! Will come back the next time I am in town!

Jeff B (Trip Advisor 5 Star Review)

 We were looking for a great breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. We were NOT disappointed. The staff was so welcoming and friendly, service was great, but the food was the star of the show. Everything was just great. This will be on our “must go often” list. 

Nashville (Open Table 5 Star Review)

Dinner before a show! Our real estate team enjoyed an excellent dinner before a show at TPAC. 417 Union did not disappoint. We all enjoyed the atmosphere, great service and delicious food. We will recommend to friends and family. The location is also great!!

Best service in Nashville! Southern comfort food and servers who love their jobs. Grab a seat at the counter and relax. Respectful people, hum of happy chatter, and bellyfull food

Taylor M (Yelp 5 Star Review)

Our last stop in Nashville. A no-frills, quaint little restaurant off of broadway. We waited less than 5 minutes, and our server was SO nice! Something about the way he spoke to us made us feel especially welcome. I had to order chicken and waffles before leaving, and they nailed it here! 

Dede N (Yelp 5 Star Review)

Good food and great service! Thanks, Ashley! We stopped in for a Bloody Mary yesterday (quite tasty) and came back for breakfast. Biscuits and gravy, yum! 

Duke C (Trip Advisor 5 Star Review)

Went here with a large group. Service was amazing, and probably the fastest food order I’ve been in a breakfast setting restaurant less than 5 min wait. Order the chicken and waffles!
