Delicious food and great lunch spot! Love the chicken salad! Quick service and friendly staff. Fairly easy to get in and out of.
Love this place! Great menu and easy to dash in to get food to go. Highly recommend. Recently had their chicken artichoke casserole - awesome!
A great local restaurant that's a unique gem to Nashville. Be sure to try the Picnic Punch tea with fresh mint-it's the best!
Enjoy going to this neat sandwich shop. Really like the pimento cheese sandwich. Had coconut cake for dessert. Yummy!!!!
Love their chicken salad. All their salads are great. Love the decor. Their tea punch is good, too. Love their cranberry muffins!
The food at Picnic Cafe is always yummy. I especially like their salads. Even though they are very busy, the wait for a table is minimal. The food comes out without a long wait.
The staff is as rude as gangster rap lyrics and it's over priced by a mile. However, the food is great, which is the only reason The Picnic gets 3 stars. If you try a salad you must have the homemade parmesan dressing. The coconut cake is to die for! The place is always busy and filled with blue haired ladies that eat up the shabby chic decor.

i do like the Picnic. I do agree the staff could be more friendly and helpful and the food is pricey.
I do have to watch what i get. They have great chicken salad and great pimento cheese. Pricey but good. However i paid $6.00 for two beautiful strawberry cupcakes today that were horrible. Crumbly and not moist. Clearly not fresh. $6.00 is a lot of money to pay for TWO CUPCAKES. Their presentation is always very nice but sometimes DECIEVING and i should have learned my lesson because this is not the first time this has happened to me with their cupcakes.
So i am thinking next time i will ask when it was baked prior to handing over $6.00.

I have to admit I'm somewhat of a regular at the Picnic... as in I go at least 1-2 times per week. The food isn't anything special (sandwiches, soups, basic salads, casseroles) but what they do have is just plain good. The service is generally pretty good and orders are delivered to your table in a timely manner, although some of the staff is kind of on the elderly side and a little slow. There is a ready-made take-out case that makes to-go orders especially easy. The food is a little on the pricey side for what you get but if you're looking for a simple, Southern lunch, this is the place to go. I love the chicken salad sandwich with cranberry salad (topped with cool whip) on the side. And, the strawberry cake is delicious!

We visited The Picnic on Saturday for lunch. Upon arriving, we held back in the line as we didn't immediately know what we wanted which earned us a disapproving look from the cashier. We were not in the way of the flow of people (it wasn't really that crowded). I intended to order the BLT and a cup of soup. However, the cashier followed my order up with ""which side?"" which lead me to believe it came with a side...not the case and i ended up with more food than needed and more expense than necessary. As I'm allergic to eggs, I asked for no mayo, to which she replied ""you wouldn't get any mayo."" Again, just unnecessary. If I would have walked into any other cafe and not indicated no mayo on a BLT, it would have had to be sent back. As soon as we get our food, my friend had pickles on her plate and I indicated that I wanted some. She gave me half her pickles, but I knew she wanted them for herself--I know this sounds ridiculous, but stick with me. So, I asked the server if I could get my own pickles to which she replied, ""you have some right there."" This was the kicker. Why would you insult the intelligence of your customer over a few pickles? I couldn't believe it. This place just exudes inhospitableness. The food was average, though my fresh fruit was nicely presented. The tortilla soup was slimy and full of chunks of processed meat. Overall, a miserable lunch experience.

I highly recommend this cafe. Everything is perfect from your meal to the decor. I pay attention to and appreciate the tiny details and this place has it. The food is delicious, presented beautifully, and the decor is bright and cheerful. Highly recommended for a girlfriends lunch.
