Music city 4th of July

Jul 4, 2018 – Jul 5, 2018

We will open at 11pm on july 4th come celebrate America’s 242nd birthday with us after the firework show!

We will close Sunday at 6am and reopen at 10pm on June 3rd. Thank you for understanding

So much food! Apparently our $6.75 breakfast is too big to fit on google. 2 eggs, sausage, homemade biscuits and gravy, home fries, and lots of love. Only available at the hermitage cafe. The only way to end your night in Nashville!

Why pay $8+ elsewhere for 1 biscuit and gravy when you can come to the historic hermitage cafe and get 2 biscuits with gravy for $3.25!!! Open nightly 10pm until 1:30pm the next day! Stop by and eat at a restaurant with real character and history!

Special thanks to The Tennessean and USA Today for placing us in the top 5 places to eat late night in Nashville. Why pay more somewhere else when you can come eat great food at a family owned cafe! Plenty of home fries and sass to go around. Come sing us a song on the jukebox! Where else can you...

As classic and authentic a diner experience as you could hope to find. Cash only, so plan ahead. There is an ATM on site. Open 10pm-1pm, perfect hours for late night munchies or a morning hangover. Service is quick and efficient, and the food is exactly as advertised. There are no frills here, but plenty of regulars. Prices are very fair and portions generous.

If you’re coming for the food, you’re in the right place. Seriously the BEST pork chops I’ve ever eaten in my life. Biscuits & gravy were good, steak & eggs were awesome too. If you’re looking for sweet southern hospitality you won’t find it here. You will find some down home sarcastic banter (not necessarily bad, Keeps you on your toes.) This is the epitome of a ‘mom n pop’ diner where the husband cooks and the wife serves customers. The other employees were super friendly & hardworking too. Overall a totally cool place... but if you don’t want your head bitten off... (you’ve been warned).... DO NOT VIDEO!!!

Great food, a great price, & good times

While other diners and fly by night restaurants try to compare. Nothing beats character and taste all at a reasonable price. Why pay $8 for biscuits and gravy when you can get that and more here for half the cost. You never know who will show up at the hermitage cafe!
