Loved the food and the art!

This little spot has more creative flair than the typical Franklin spot. I loved my quiche and flavored lemonade. The table are close together, so a quiet cup of coffee might be difficult, but my party of three had no trouble enjoying light conversation with our lunch.

I have been going here for around 15 years. Ownershipship has changed a couple times, but it is wonderful! Specialty drinks and wonderful sandwiches. My favorite is the chicken pesto panini and potato salad!

Best sticky bun I ever had! Great coffee, they know how to make it. We had egg sandwiches on fabulous bagels. Real nice people run the coffee shop. Highly recommend it! !!

Franklin has a great downtown area with some great vintage shops, all within walking distance of each other. Courthouse square has a number of fun looking good places, we chose Benjamin's because it was recommended by three different shop owners. The small town cafe feel comes complete with friendly patrons and personal service. A blackboard lists tasty choices for every... More

We stopped in for lunch as first-time visitors because we were in town to golf. It was right next door to the other restaurant we were considering (Court's Café or something like that), and we choose it because more people were inside Benjamin's even though the menu of the other one looked perhaps a little better. Chocolate chunk cookie gets... More

Just found this place today & thought I'd drop in. It is part coffeehouse/deli/bakery. Seems like they are pulling it all off well. Lunch was on my mind & I choose the special. The Ambassador, tuna salad on a croissant (I got the rye), chips & drip for $7.75. A pleasant lady took my order & got my drink. The... More
