Tomorrow the "Mother Church of Country Music" will officially debut $14 million worth of improvements to their historic facilities, the most substantial of which is the addition of new all-day dining option Cafe Lula.
Located at the Ryman's main entrance, the new eatery, named after longtime former Ryman Auditorium manager Lula C. Naff, will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, as well as a full bar with beer, wine and liquor. A selection of grab-and-go items will also be available.
The menu puts an emphasis on rotisserie cooking, offering chicken, hot chicken, and pork loin, along with a selection of sandwiches, salads, soups, sides and desserts. Breakfast items include cinnamon rolls, 'The Donut "Whole"' and "Yogurt Your Way," as well as coffee from local Garage Coffee Co. Head below to see the full menus.
The space itself features floor to ceiling windows on three sides, with 80 seats inside and a covered veranda that seats 30.
Hours of operation will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with possible extended hours on Ryman event nights.
