My husband and I can not get enough of this little bakery/café. The atmosphere is very quaint and homey, as is their food. Everything is freshly prepared and it shows. I highly recommend grabbing a menu before you get to the counter to order. There is sometimes a line but they always manage to keep it moving and we haven't... More

Well we just can't get enough of your glowing review! We are glad to hear that you enjoy our sweet and savory items, even though you weren't a fan of the French Silk Pie. You're right! There's too many other pies to love so it doesn't make sense to eat a slice of one you didn't love. Thanks for including... More

Merridee's was recommended to me by the tour guide at the Carter House. I had the best food there. I tried the Apple Bacon Panini, the peanut butter pie and a cookie while there on 10/15/14. It was so good, I made a special trip back on 10/20/14 before I flew home from my vacation to Nashville and Memphis. Merridee's... More

You order and pay at the counter, and depending on what you have ordered you either take it with you to a table or it is brought out to your table. I had the ultimate club sandwich but it was nothing special and I am not sure what was ultimate about it as it only contained lettuce, tomato, Turkey and... More

Our favorites are the chicken salad with egg bread and the Three Cheese Quiche. Just about all of the sandwich items are good. Plenty of pastries to check out. A little pricey and pretty crowded most of the time.

A variety of fresh breads (Viking, sourdough, wheat) pastries, pies, cookies and other baked goods are made daily on site. Breakfast menu includes sticky buns, biscuits, omelettes and breakfast burritos. Also available are flavored coffees and fruit teas with free refills. Lunch and... More

Thank you, Kim, for your glowing and helpful review! We love having you come in each week for our beloved Viking bread and curry chicken salad. That's a great idea for "homemade" lunches. We love being a part of Downtown Franklin, and we look forward to seeing you soon. More

I love the small town feel of Merridee's. It is a bit pricey but a perfect spot to hook up with a friend for a cup of tea and a biscuit.

Excellent baked goods and sandwiches. Old fashioned bakery where you can watch them bake through a window into the kitchen. Can be super busy at lunch time. Quaint mix and match seating. Lots of baked goods - pies, cakes, loaves of bread, muffins, etc. - packaged to go. Sandwiches, quiche, soup, etc. for lunch. Yum!
