538 Lafayette Street, Nashville, TN 37203
Known by the more in-the-know downtown business crowd as Dan’s Cafe or just plain Dan’s since its 1991 SoBro debut, owner Dan Robinson’s Dandgure’s Cafe (pronounced Dan-jures) remains one of the area’s best meat-and-threes. And since TV personality, author and chef Anthony Bourdain featured the spot on his “Parts Unknown” TV show in fall 2016, the nation and world know it as well. Notable sides include the mac and cheese, turnip greens, fried corn, and squash casserole. Leave room for a dish of banana pudding, fruit cobbler or a slice of pie. Wash it down with what the eatery boasts is “the best lemonade in town.” (We don’t argue.)
No alcohol available. Serving lunch 10:30 am-2 pm Mon-Fri. Closed Sat-Sun.
