6 Stops Everyone Must Make Along Nashville’s Biscuit Trail
Biscuits in the south seem to be a right a passage. They mark a city with their buttery, crumbly goodness, calling out restaurants amongst the masses to stand in the ever wonderful light. For young children, making biscuits with grandma and grandpa marks their childhood with a southern nostalgic glow. Here in Nashville, these six restaurants stand out amongst the rest for their delicious, bready goodness.

The Loveless Cafe really isn't as far away as it seems, so don't fret! This Nashville biscuit road trip is the kind of experience you'll never forget, taking you from the rolling hills of south Nashville to the hipster culture of the eastside.
1. Nashville Biscuit House - East Nashville
Nashville Biscuit House is best known as a local hole-in-the-wall, a small eatery that boasts a drive-thru and biscuits on biscuits on biscuits. Yes, pretty much everything on the menu is served on or with a biscuit. What else would you expect at a house of biscuits?! You can stay and indulge or take 'em to go. (805 Gallatin Ave)
2. Barista Parlor - Various Locations
Barista Parlor has opened multiple locations since the national fanfare of their Gallatin location, but one thing remains the same: their puffy, fluffy, crumbly biscuits. Perhaps the most indulgent on our list, a Barista Parlor biscuit sandwich is known throughout the city for its decadence. (Located in East Nashville, Germantown and the Gulch)
3. Sky Blue - East Nashville
This sweet local cafe has long since stolen the hearts of locals and tourists alike, offering up a sweet, nostalgic atmosphere with a thoroughly decadent menu. We'd obviously recommend a biscuit sandwich, but if you give in to their breakfast bowls or perhaps try to go healthy with a bit of granola, no worries! You can get a biscuit on the side. (700 Fatherland St)
4. Husk - Sobro
Husk is known for its locally sourced ingredients from Tennessee farmers and their own beautiful garden. This upscale eatery is better for an anniversary or perhaps a birthday, but don't give in to the siren's call of dinnertime! Brunch and biscuits are the crowning glory of this great Nashville spot. (37 Rutledge St)
5. Biscuit Love - Various Locations
Biscuit Love is one of Nashville's dining success stories. What once began as a highly popular food truck has now exploded across the city, opening storefronts in the Gulch, Hillsboro Village and Franklin. Try their bonuts, petite donuts made of biscuit dough, or perhaps simply indulge in a biscuit with butter and jam. It's the simple things.
6. Loveless Cafe - Facebook
Ah, yes. We couldn't talk about biscuits in Nashville without a visit to the Loveless Cafe, now could we? This is the restaurant your grandparents frequented and your parents grew up at. This is where a whole new generation of Tennesseans cut their teeth on biscuit lovin', where they realized that although the biscuits aren't precisely like home? They get pretty dang close. Indulge in a few memories while you're in Nashville, especially with a thick swipe of butter and jam. (8400 Highway 100)
