For a taste of nostalgia and the best biscuits you’ve ever had, head to the Loveless Cafe 30 minutes southwest of Nashville. Open since 1951, people come here at all hours of the day for huge plates of chicken-fried steak and smoked country ham, but it’s their legendary biscuits, which they bake more than 10,000 of daily, that turned this place into a local institution. By all means take a picture of their giant neon sign out front, but if you need another souvenir, make sure to buy some biscuit mix to take home. Future you will be very happy.
