Great place for a soup and salad before a show at the Ryman. The house salad with blue cheese candied walnuts with chopped kale and dried cranberries with balsamic vinaigrette and tomato bisque amazing!!

My wife and I headed to downtown Nashville for an evening at the Ryman Auditorium. We arrived about 90 minute early; so, we decided to eat at Cafe Lula - it was so convenient to the Ryman AND we had heard some good things about it. The "rumors" were correct. Prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious. I had the pork chops with mac & cheese as the side and my wife had the chicken salad sandwich with home cooked chips. She also had a glass (cup) of red wine and I had a craft beer. We will do this again the next time we see a show at the Ryman. That is for sure. There were a couple of other items on the menu that I would like to try.

Quaint cafeteria style eatery, a good little selection of sandwiches and a few entrees. We ate here before a show and it served the purpose. Next time we will probably eat at another local place to get more of the scene. Prices are a little high, but not bad considering it is there for the venue. The drinks are good. I would recommend if you need something quick and are going to the Ryman.

I went to the Ryman with some family from out of town, and we were so hungry when we finished the tour that we decided to give Cafe Lula a try. I was so surprised with the quality. The ingredients were really fresh (you could actually watch the kitchen cutting the vegetables). I had the burger and it was awesome! I would definitely recommend Cafe Lula to anyone who is visiting Broadway and wants something fast, casual, and a little healthier than deep fried pickles.

We were looking for a quick bite before a show at the Ryman and while it was relatively quick to get our food none of it was all that good. 2 of us got the Hot Chicken salad sandwich which lacked the main ingredient, And what there was tasted ok but nothing great. A friend got the burger and again, while it tasted ok it was mostly bun. The worst was my wife's Caesar salad which was just bland.
