We both got the cheese grits bowl. I had bacon and my sister had country ham. Comes with 2 eggs. Mine were overlooked but still delicious. A wonderful dish!

I've been a few times to Franklin Mercantile Co. It's in a perfect spot on the corner, so you can't miss it. I went with my sister & father on this day and they both said the same thing I always do. It's good food, but not great. It is a soup & sandwich place, so I don't think you... More

We found this adorable diner in downtown Franklin. If you love mason jar vintage decor this place is a treat. However, The employees were less than friendly, Chilli was served with a side of Ritz cracker. No cheese, onions, or silverware. The chicken salad lacked flavor and it was overpriced. They were out of the soup of the day and... More

Nice atmosphere and lots of tables inside to eat at. A block of the main drag so not as crazy as some other places. Typical deli fare. Would have liked to see some Southern specials.

Located in lovely Downtown Franklin Historic Shopping District...offered soups/sandwiches/wraps/paninis/salads.

All 4 of us had very good lunches. Mables Chicken Salad was good, but could have used a bit of seasoning. Fruit cups... More

Just happened upon this restaurant: Casual deli with a variety of sandwiches and sides. Daily soup special. WiFi available. Order first and they will call you when ready. It is good and expect a wait at peak times.

Freshly prepared; not a place if you are in a hurry. Sandwiches have an abundance of meats and cheese. Is a definite place to visit again.

I had the roast beef sandwich that was toasted with a side salad. The "side" salad was fantastic and so was the sandwich. I like that it has healthy sides since travelers often "junk out". The store did close 15 minutes earlier then their posted times.
