Back in Franklin and Merridee's is a must visit for us. I always get the chicken salad on the baguette. Great portion size. The service was far better than past visits. We were given sample cookies to try that couldn't be sold because they were broken. They were delicious ;). Can't wait for the next visit. The atmosphere is extremely... More

Loved taking Meridee's pies and breads to holiday parties! Order ahead though. They are always busy before holidays.

I ordered the patty melt, which doesn't sound to glamorous, but it was incredible - an absolute delicacy that I can't recommend enough.

Located in the heart of Franklin, about 20 mins from Nashville, just off Main street. Lots of parking in the area. Nice for lunch. Limited evening hours so consult the website or call for info but usually Thursday to Saturday. Mostly sandwiches and deserts. Enjoyed some fresh baked cookies. Proceed to the counter, place order and pay, get a number,... More

After reading recommendation in local tour guide we want to try old style bakery and cafe. Saturday lunch , a very busy popular venue for locals and tourists alike. Great variety of old fashioned pies , sandwiches, soups and sweet treats. Good atmosphere and old fashion ambience. Certainly worth worth a coffee or lunch break.

After seeing the huge line outside Puckett's, and find the Red Pony closed, we decided to go to the nearest open restaurant. I saw at the counter that the chicken salad sandwich was the house special so I ordered it. My wife ordered the apple bacon Panini. Both were very good and I wished they were bigger! I was impressed... More

We were hungry upon arrival & were hooked on the good smells immediately. The special of the day - chicken salad on homemade bread, chips & a piece of pie was a good choice. It was delicious & an excellent value. We wish they had one in California. Next visit to Franklin will include a lunch at Merridee's.

Absolutely no complaints here. Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant, recommended by many locals. We barely got there as they closed, and was served with a smile. Fun cooking!
