Sophisticated Southern and Gourmet Country are great ways to describe the cuisine at the charming Mack & Kate"s Cafe. Named after two sisters, MacKenzie and Kathleen, our family owned and operated establishment will make you feel right at home. Started in a small, sleepy town, Mack & Kate's humbled beginnings took place in a small service station. This charming little destination dining spot grew over eight years, resulting in the Strawn Family relocating Mack & Kates to Franklin, TN. We enjoy seeing our friends from our early days and our new friends here in Franklin. We use the freshest and finest when it comes to our ingredients and always support local farmers and growers. We pride our self in our accommodating and knowledgeable service team and the ability to consistently feed our customers what they are looking for; the freshest from the best.

One of my favorite places to eat!

Mack and Kate's deliver tasty quality farm to table experiences! The service is friendly and the atmosphere like sitting I. Your grandma's kitchen...quaint and peaceful. I love any one of their appetizers as well as their salads. Their homemade biscuits are great too! I've never had a bad meal... read more

Our group really enjoyed dinner! The server (I believe his name was Wayne) was great, they have a great wine list and everything we ordered was delicious! It was a very special birthday celebration!

Ate at Mack and Kate's for the first time last night. Great atmosphere, attentive and friendly service (thanks Justin!), and the food was delicious. Started with house sangria which had syrah, peachtree schnapps, a bit of juice and sliced fruit, refreshing and not too sweet. Then we had the smoked bacon deviled eggs, and the seasonal berry salad (strawberries, blueberries,... More

We ate here on a Friday evening for dinner. We had reservations and the restaurant was crowded. The atmosphere is pleasant and we had wonderful service.our Among the four of us who dined we had Kate's Bouillabaise, The Seared Tenderloin, Shrimp and Grits and the chicken. We all enjoyed the food, but none of us found anything special about the... More

Been a while since we'd been to Mack and Kates. Quaint setting. Friendly service. Fun vibe. Those were the positives. Food was sub par in our estimation though. Partner had Amish Chicken. Chicken was bland with very little flavor. My salmon was good, but nothing special. Nothing really remarkable about the restaurant. And with the high prices they charge, you'd... More

I have wanted to check this place out since they opened, and frankly I'm disappointed. On Memorial Sunday night, they were out of biscuits, out of chicken. So l ordered meatloaf, which was so salty it was nearly inedible. The mashed potatoes were cold and overly chunky. The only pluses were a quaint atmosphere and a cheerful server. He discounted...

What a wonderful hometown surprise. At the suggestion of a friend, I made reservations for lunch after church one Sunday. What a great choice from start to finish. The service was impeccable and food outstanding. My daughter and I both enjoyed our meal and she has since been back. The restaurant is small, but well appointed. It is a great... More

My husband and I recently visited Nashville but stayed in the beautiful town of Franklin. We had Sunday brunch here and we were very impressed their "shabby chic" interior was inviting and warm and their food was interesting and delicious. We had the Crab Cake Benedict and BBQ Omelet both came with large portions and were seasoned and prepared perfectly.... More

Mack and Kate's is a family created, owned and operated cafe in the Franklin - Cool Springs area. Offering a unique menu that changes often. Great cocktails too. And don't let the setting fool you; once you enter, the decor is fabulous and makes you feel like you are in an old old cafe.

My friend and I had dinner here one Sunday evening recently. I decided to take a chance and ordered the filet with béarnaise sauce and fried egg accompanied by asparagus and fingerling potatoes. The steak was the best I have ever eaten in my life. It cut like butter and was very savory. The sides were delicious as well. I... More
