Stopped at Merridee's today twice, once for breakfast, once for lunch. For breakfast we had one of their peanut butter bars, not the best choice for breakfast, but delicious. For lunch, we had their chicken salad sandwich along with pecan pie. It was all great. We are in Nashville for the week and will be heading back to Franklin and... More

I absolutely loved Merridee's Breadbasket. This was one of the favorite place that I ate in Franklin. I had the Mandarin Salad with the Regular Chicken Salad on Top. It was amazing and the homemade dressing was too. They have every kind of homemade goodies you could want. The Pecan Pie was amazing. It was crowded (Sat.) but awesome. The... More

We were so pleased with the recommendations we received from various businesses. Merridee's being one of them...excellent food! The hardest part was making a decision on what to order...finally deciding on the chicken salad & pie. YUM! Everything was so fresh & homemade...we will definitely return.

The food was delicious, the person that took our order was very helpful in describing the choices. The restaurant was packed and more people were coming in and no one was flustered. A great place to have breakfast or lunch.

Although a little crowded (due to its popularity), this is a great place for lunch plates and sandwiches. Food is excellent, atmosphere is fun. Recommended!

After touring the Carnton Plantation we drove into Franklin to find Merribee's because it had been featured in Southern Living magazine. We had Key Lime pie, cookies, and a cream cheese raspberry fudge bar. Everything tasted great, the service was friendly, and the prices were appropriate.

After spending some time checking out Downtown Franklin and planning to head south on the Natchez Trace, we stopped in at Merridee's and picked up box lunch sandwiches to go. The egg salad and the chicken salad sandwiches were delicious, service great, and staff very helpful. It's obviously very popular based upon the mix of locals and tourists there!

The food is out of this world. The coffee is even better! (Get here early so you can take the brew of the day home!) The bakery...oh my god, the bakery! If you can find one bakery item that isn't heaven in your mouth, I question your food judgement. Sit by the windows looking into the fresh bakery kitchen and... More
