I can't imagine visiting Franklin and not stopping at Merridee's. The place is so charming with a great cafe menu: sandwiches, salads, quiche, soup, etc . . . And lots of yummy baked goods. Wish we had something like this where I live!

We have been to Franklin a few times, and we've eaten in Meridee's each time. It has such a nice atmosphere, it's a nice old building with the original hardwood floors and it's nice and cozy. After you place your order at the counter, you put your name on your table and someone brings you your food. We've had the... More

Meridee's has been around for the many years I have lived in Franklin. It is relatively unchanged. It is unspoiled. It has expanded due to its fantastic baked goods and its breakfast and lunch menus. This restaurant just hits the nail on the head, and as a Franklinite, I tend to take advantage of it being such a solid quick... More

Merridee's makes the most delicious baked goods, including Cinnamon Rolls, Cookies of all types, Assorted Pies and Breads. I love their Oatmeal bread the best. Right now for Easter, they are making Hot Cross Buns and Sweet Breads with icing and cream cheese. Merridee's also makes an excellent Chicken Salad Sandwich. Your choice of bread.

Merridee's is simply the best! Crowded for lunch it is always worth the wait! Everything is homemade including the salad dressing. And be sure to get a piece of pie, French Silk, Fudge, or French Coconut are all favorites!

Needed a quick bite to eat on a Saturday evening. I enjoyed a wonderful quiche and salad while hubby had a curried chicken salad sandwich that he described as "excellent ".

I enjoy the fresh baked goods on offer. Living within walking distance I have visited many times. Variety of options and baked goods is their specialty. Can get crowded.

I enjoyed an amazingly delicious homemade ham & cheese biscuit filled high with bacon, egg and cheese. The biscuit was light and fluffy and so over the top with flavor. The egg was more like an omelet topped with cheese and three nice pieces of bacon cooked to perfection. If only I could get something this good back home.

I always make a point to stop here whenever I'm driving. Best lemon bar I've ever had and my boyfriend loved their peanut butter brownies!

This place is a great option for a decent lunch at a reasonable cost. We had the house special which was a chicken salad sandwich, chips and a slice of pie for $8.95. The chicken salad was a bit on the dry side, but the pie was very good. We split our pies, so I tried the French Silk and... More
