Cherry Trees

Thanks to the generous support of our corporate and individual sponsors, 800 cherry blossom trees have been planted throughout Nashville. We are getting closer to our decade-long quest to plant 1,000 Japanese cherry trees. We can already imagine the 800 cherry trees planted in the last eight years full of beautiful, pink blossoms this spring, and we hope you will join us as we watch both the trees and the festival flourish in the years to come!

Biscuit Love Supports Local Businesses


We love local. Here’s a list of some of the suppliers we work with who always provide the very best quality ingredients.

Biscuit Love The Gulch Nashville TN

Bear Creek Farm’s cattle are born and raised on 1,400 scenic acres near Leiper’s Fork, TN. Bear Creek Farms is a sustainable grass-fed, grain-finished cattle farm, raising all-natural Angus beef in a responsible and humane way. The Cherrys are people who are truly dedicated to raising happy animals and we are proud to serve both their beef and pork.

Beaverdam Creek Farm is made up of 73 acres of rolling hills, lush green pastures, and woodlands bordered by the clear-flowing waters of Beaverdam Creek in Coble, TN. The Lingos stay true to their guiding principle of raising their produce the way our Creator intended: free of harmful chemicals, antibiotics, growth stimulants, and GMOs. Their seasonal produce serves as the inspiration for many of our seasonal dishes.

Blackberry Farm Brewery has made waves with their saisons. From a refreshing summer saison to a Fall saison aged in oak barrels to their current offering, a moody, dark Winter saison, we are positive you will enjoy each one as much as we have.

Bloomsbury Farm is nestled in the hills between Smyrna and Nolensville, TN. While vegetables and herbs are a large part of the operation, their variety of Heritage chicken eggs are what keep us coming back.

Biscuit Love Nashville Monday Breakfast

Bourbon Barrel Foods started in the garage of founder Matt Jamie in Louisville, Kentucky. We’ve been enjoying and using their Bourbon Madagascar Vanilla Extract (aged in barrels that used to hold some fine Kentucky bourbon) to give our food even more of a Southern flavor. Their motto is “Slow. Small. Simple.” We think they should also add “Superb” to it.

Cruze Dairy Farms is a family dairy farm in Knoxville, Tennessee. They milk Jersey cows and bottle their own whole pasteurized Jersey milk and real churned buttermilk. And as their t-shirts state, we can attest that biscuits really do rise better with Cruze buttermilk.

The Charleston Tea Plantation is located on historic Wadmalaw Island in the heart of the Lowcountry of South Carolina. We fell in love with the Charleston Tea Plantation on a trip to Charleston, and you will fall in love with our sweet tea! It is an exceptional product being grown right here in the South.

Jackalope Brewing Company has been supporters of Biscuit Love since our days on the truck and as long-time fans of theirs, we are thrilled to be able to reciprocate! Their American Pale Ale, Thunder Ann is made with honey and biscuit malts which we think is a perfect complement to our menu and pairs very well with The Princess.

Biscuit Love Nashville TN Sat.

Helen Hooper-Hirst Pottery uses Tennessee clay to hand-make her pottery in her home studio in Lockeland Springs in East Nashville. In floating blues and iron-saturated browns, her work is inspired by the Tennessee landscape’s rich, natural colors which we enjoy each time we sip from our beautiful coffee mugs.

Weisenberger Mill has been “the baker’s choice” since early 1865. Owned and operated for six generations by the Weisenberger family, the mill is nestled on the banks of the South Elkhorn Creek in the heart of central Kentucky. One trip to this water powered mill was enough to convince us that our biscuits wouldn’t be quite Southern enough without their flour.

America’s Favorite Fast Food Restaurants

By Mike Pomranz Posted March 09, 2017

Market Force Information is the most recent company to try their hand a teasing out the true fast food cream from the rest of the crop. According to CNBC, these customer experience experts culled responses from more than 11,000 people to create “a composite loyalty index that measures satisfaction with the food quality, service, value and restaurant experience, among other things.” (I’m envisioning those “other things” as Happy Meal toys.) From there, Market Force was able to assess what restaurants it believes people truly love (and actually hate) for a bunch of major fast food categories.

 In-N-Out Burger

For burger chains, cult favorite In-N-Out Burger took the top spot in a victory that fans of the West Coast chain certainly won’t find surprising. Meanwhile, in another unsurprising result, the oft maligned McDonald’s was bringing up the rear, eking out Burger King for the lowest ranking. Similarly, in the chicken category, the beloved Chick-fil-A took the top spot while less favorably looked upon brands like Popeye’s, Church’s and KFC rounded out the bottom.

Some more unique names took top honors in the pizza and sandwich categories. Ohio-based Marco’s Pizza was the highest rated pizza joint. Though the chain has nearly 1,000 locations, Marco’s was a new name at the top of this sector. Meanwhile, Florida-based Firehouse Subs took a pretty commanding victory when it came to sandwiches.

But possibly the most surprising result was for favorite Mexican restaurant. Chipotle Mexican Grill finished number one, narrowly beating out Moe’s Southwest Grill and El Pollo Loco. Come on. That’s a comeback story. The other burrito spots have to be looking at Chipotle thinking, “Seriously? We lost to that guy after all he did?”
