Excellent Breakfast Burrito

I've always loved Merridee's for pastries, but this last time I tried a breakfast burrito. It was hearty and delicious. Now the hard part...do I have to choose between the pastry and burrito or do I just load up on both? Maybe take the pastry home for later...

We ordered sandwiches to take on a picnic at a local winery. We had called ahead but they waited to make the hot sandwiches we ordered until we arrived for pick up. They didn't really have a way to keep them warm after they were made. But the sandwiches were very good and the bread so fresh!!

Merridee's is not to be missed if you are visiting downtown Franklin. If you are driving through on I-65 it is worth bypassing the interstate eateries to experience the delicious meal and charming atmosphere a ten minute detour through Franklin offers. Merridee's has terrific coffees of various roasts & always offers a rotating flavored brew. My favorite is Highlander Grog,... More

I've been eating at Merridee's for around 20 years and still love it! Great food, simple atmosphere amazing pastries and cakes. One of my favorite things to do is grab a pastry and some tea in the morning, then sit out on a bench on Main Street in Franklin and people-watch. Highly recommended.

What a great place! It had the best food and THE BEST desserts of my stay! It was crowded, but the line to order moved quickly because there were 3 people taking orders. I thought seats might be a challenge, but were not. Customers turned over at just the right pace so that tables became available. There was even a... More
