When we moved to the area, one of our new neighbors dropped off a quick "care basket" with one of Merridee's pumpkin bread loafs, to give us a break when we were in the throes of moving and unpacking. We absolutely loved it! And when friends of ours also moved into the area we did the same for them. We... More

After years as a breakfast and lunch place, they are now open several nights a week and have music on Saturday nights! The staff is very friendly. Some customers may dislike having to go to the counter to order. It... More

This little place is like a beehive! We were passing through Franklin between Nashville and the Williamson County Fair and were looking for a light bite. Orders are placed at the counter, then delivered to your table; oddly, my friend and I ordered the same thing in succession, but hers came much later and was burned. Extensive menu of sandwiches...

...peanut butter pie! in the heart of historic franklin, tn, merridee's specializes hot & cold sandwiches and desserts (pies and cookies). the place is usually crowded during lunch for a reason...the food is good and atmosphere lively. local business people, tourist, and families frequent the establishment. you can't go wrong with the peanut butter pie...yummy.

Peanut Butter pie is always a good idea! Thanks for taking the time to write a review. It can be a little crowded during the noon rush. Next time you're in Franklin, maybe you can plan on a late lunch of grilled pimento cheese and a slice of peanut butter pie. More
