This year, Eater is teaming up with James Beard award-winning Southern Foodways Alliance to spotlight their documentary work, premiering a short film every other week. This next piece focuses on Silver Sands, a breakfast go-to and lunch meat and three in Nashville that’s been in the same family for five decades. Owner Sophia Vaughn starts her days at 2 a.m. and starts cooking breakfast at 3 a.m. for the first customers at 6. Everything is made from scratch, every day. Check it out.
