A Nashville institution, Pancake Pantry is the place to go for breakfast. It's a favorite with locals, students, and celebrities. Breakfast is the specialty, with 20 kinds of pancakes (sweet to savory) and homemade syrups. There are good soups and sandwiches for lunch—or you can stick with the pancakes, which are served till closing in late afternoon. Get there by 8:15 weekdays to avoid lines; but be prepared to wait on weekends.
