I always say the best meal of the day is breakfast time. I recently had a friend from NYC visit and was asked to take him to a real southern country breakfast.. So i was on the lookout. I don't know every place in town...More

Delicious semi artisan sandwiches and paninis . Homemade soups that will remind you of grandmas house. They also have a delicious breakfast menu before 1030. Right off of the square the location is fantastic with easy access to parking. This place is a local favorite...More

This is a great lunch place. It's very popular with the locals because the food is delicious and reasonably priced.

We have to stop here every time we come to Franklin. Their sandwiches are divine and their homemade cinnamon rolls are to die for. They are so good and fresh. We always make a point to stop in for breakfast or lunch.

Great croissant sandwiches paired with various daily soups. LOVE the tomato bisque and a grilled cheese! Clean interior, great service Order at the counter, pick up at the counter. Seating gets a little scarce at peak times.

The Franklin Mercantile Co. is another nice eatery and coffee shop. The breakfast is great and there is outdoor seating.

Excellent attention to detail. The Black Forest Ham Panini was super delicious as was the cucumber salad and baked potato salad. The accompanying spices were perfectly blended and not overpowering. A half a block off Main St. but worth the effort of seeking out.

Eat breakfast or lunch here regularly, always good. Can get crowded, but a nice menu selection and a cute local hideaway. Don't try to go during a downtown franklin fest weekend if you want to park nearby. Occasional star sightings 😎

This is a good choice for a light lunch although the portions can be quite large! I had the BLT with the sun-dried tomato spread and it was so filling I couldn't eat it all. I think next time I would do the 1/2 sandwich...More

We had panini's, soup, quesadillas, and sandwiches. All were wonderful and in a very relaxing and comfortable environment. The only challenge was being able to hear our name being called when the order came out. I can't wait to go back!
