Love eating here..

Fresh and healthy food with great flavor. I always get the standing Indian wrap and some soup. Food always sits well and the service is always great :)

Good tomato basil soup, eclectic sandwich/salad menu with premium ingredients. It's not cheap eats, but it's not unreasonable either. They are inside the Antique mall with a small and quiet seating area. Nice little lunch spot.

Jer's Kitchen is located in the Whistle Stop Mall. The Resturant is located in a railroad themed antique mall right next to an original 1940's caboose. Food is excellent and priced reasonably. The setting is unique and interesting.

we were here in the spring of 2012. The soups are awesome and so are the sandwiches. It is inside the Whistle Stop Antique Mall on the main road. You can shop and if you get hungry, eat and then shop some more. We loved it. Nice people

One of my favorite lunch spots in Franklin. Not just your same old, same old. Interesting and delicious sandwiches, soups and salads. I have only eaten the vegetarian options, but everything has been delicious. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes "out of the ordinary."

Wow! Outstanding service, excellent setting, and homemade creative dishes. Everything is grade A exceptional, especially this unrepeatable lamb burger! What's the downside? They only serve lunch... we want more of Jer's Kitchen! Don't miss this lunch spot!

A great find while visiting the Whistle Stop. In fact went back twice for lunch. Soups great and vary with day. Cheese and pimento sandwich like my mom used to make. Will definitely return. Be prepared to spend some time browsing the Whistle Stop.

Tucked in the corner of Whistle Stop is one of my favorite places to eat. Jer comes up with THE MOST DELICIOUS meals. Last week I stopped in for lunch and her special was onion encrusted Salmon. I loved it so much, I ordered another one for my husband and my dinner that night. The portions are large, prices are... More

The restaurant's portions were very generous which warranted myself to take half of my lamb burger home, so my friends and I could split bread pudding which was exceptional. I'll return for either the lamb or any other sandwich with the torta bread.
