    first it was a little bit of a shock when we thought we were going to a private home so that kind of threw us off, the food was good it just wasn't what we were expecting

    Our server didn’t warn me that the hot chicken was going to be slathered in sauce. I was expecting crispy with spices, like most places that serve hot chicken. It was disgusting. I ate the biscuit but the chicken was nasty. Thankfully, we had ordered a biscuit basket, so I didn’t leave hungry. If I came back, I’d steer far away from the chicken. The AC was also not that great, given it was a hot day, but leaving the front door open didn’t help.

    The cafe is a quaint little house, that was old and felt dingy and smelly. The food was good, shrimp and grits tasted good but was more like soup as the grits weren’t thick enough, overall it was good friendly service. I just couldn’t get over the smell, the dining area and bathrooms didn’t feel clean, and there was always a line for the bathroom as they only have two. I’d probably go back, but would only eat outdoors, the inside just felt cramped and dingy.

    We sat for over 10min before anyone came by our table to get drink order. It’s not a large restaurant so I think hard for the wait staff not to notice a large family with nothing as all other tables around us serviced. We did make a reservation since we know it can be tricky for restaurants to seat parties >4. Several missteps with our order- wrong drink and eggs. The food was fair- bacon tasty but not crispy and sausage patties were burnt and crunchy, eggs bland. 🥴Check needed to be corrected. Had to ask for everything- napkins, dish for appetizers, water. Overall, has potential but would not strongly recommend after this experience. Price far too high for the service and quality.

    This is cute for a quick diner vibe with a good breakfast, but it’s NOT a ~Nashville destination~ or worth taking a 20 min drive for. The sign out front was cute to take a picture in front of but that’s about it. It’s very hot inside. Maybe I just caught them on a bad day but it the dining experience just wasn’t what I was expecting.

    First time here..my sister was visiting from out of town and wanted to try something new. The food was phenomenal and the service was great. I felt like I was being served by friends in their home. The fried green tomatoes where..”chefs kiss”. I’m definitely going back again and again.

    Hole in the wall kind of place which we usually swoon over. It was chaos. No clear understanding of where to enter or who was seating. We settled in inside at a window table. Server took forever to get our order. Luckily the person seating us grabbed us coffee and water. My coffee cup was chipped and has lipstick all over it. 🤮. Our server was super nice but exceptionally slow. Got our order correct, however, no jam for our biscuits. That’s what we came for! I finally hunted some down but the biscuit was cold. The person who delivered the food didn’t hang around to make sure we had everything and she clearly wanted to be elsewhere. Overall the food was good. Biscuits were promising. Jam was definitely delicious. We will try again and hope for a better experience.

    We are out back & the flies were so bad. Our waitress was friendly, but not attentive. We had to ask to order, silverware, plates, the check, cleared our own table due to the flies. The blueberry donut was yummy. Our other food was just ok.

    It was a cute little place, but water in solo cups and the food wasn’t that great. My eggs were super dry, my sausage was over cooked and cold, my potatoes were a frozen scoop. Waitress was nice, but she places the order on her phone and walks away. She was also wearing a cropped top and shorts. Interesting place! My friend enjoyed her food though.

    We were in town celebrating a family wedding. I knew we would need a hearty brunch the next morning, Nashville Jam Co. hit the spot and was amazing. It was hard to choose, so we ordered all sorts of things and loved it all! We discussed wishing we had an extra day just so we could go back! The service was incredible!

    Decent to good food however the place was a mess! There was no Hostess. When we arrived for our reservation, the small entrance was already a little crowded. By the time anyone came to assist (about 15 minutes later), it was jam packed. The restaurant in general was filthy at 10 am on a Sunday. They were out of clean glasses and silverware. They gave us the cheapest, smallest plastic ware. My son could hardly cut him pancakes. We won’t be going back.

    We were mocked for having used this app because they don’t take reservations. The food was not good and dishes are served on cheap plates. This would be okay if the prices aligned with this level of food and experience. It was nice eating outside and the decor is cute. Also our server was great, but overall my group was disappointed with our food and how we were treated upon arrival.

    If you’re visiting Nashville you have to stop at Nashville jam Co! It’s a pretty small hole in the way place but the food is AMAZING! The bronut and jams are so good! If the weather is nice, the picnic tables outside are a nice place to sit. Make sure to make a reservation in advance!

    No reservations! They do not need to be on Open Table. They are first come, and you have to guard your table as they clean it off or it will be given away by another server or the owner. The owner was extremely rude. The kitchen was fast and pretty good.
