Bell Buckle Cafe, Bell Buckle, Tennessee
I really can't say enough good things about the Bell Buckle Café in Bell Buckle, Tennessee (which is walking horse country). It is superb! We first found out about it in the Tennessee Magazine. In the issue we read, it was voted the Best of Tennessee 2012 "Home/Country Cooking" in Middle Tennessee.
The Bell Buckle Café has a down-home atmosphere.
Signed photos of country-music celebrities line several of the walls.
This country décor sets the stage for the mouth-watering food that is served there. (Our food was served by Renee, who did a great job.)
They have some unusual desserts that you don't find anywhere else. For instance, they have homemade grits cake with strawberries and whipped cream, Moon Pie sundaes with vanilla ice cream, and chocolate cobbler (that I overheard one woman say was great which I don't doubt for a minute!) to mention a few.

Bell Buckle Café and the town of Bell Buckle of around 450 people are closely intertwined. As we were waiting for a table in the café during prime time, we visited some of the interesting little shops (You don't mind waiting, as the time just seems to fly by since you're enjoying the shops so much!).
After we finished eating, we visited a few more shops, like the Doodle Bug Too which has handbags and jewelry and Perfectly Painted which has, among other things, a really cute resident dog named Bugzy.
The items in these shops are good quality, and are very reasonably priced! (I bought a pair of earrings, necklace, and bracelet, all for $12.00 plus tax, and they are lovely.)

We are going back to this wonderful little community again to visit more shops, and to the Bell Buckle Café to try their fried biscuits with homemade apple butter. Yum! Sounds like a plan!
