Been going there for years. This is the place I go in downtown Franklin for breakfast to meet and talk with people. It is basically a "go to the counter - put in your order - pick it up - and eat" restaurant. The menu is simple, the food is homemade, and the breakfast combinations are great. The atmosphere -...

Such a wonderful lunch! The spinach salad was so delicious with lots of cranberries, walnuts and mandarin oranges topped with bacon and feta cheese. The white cheddar pimento cheese was really good to. Had a piece of pie and a cookie - would have loved to take some bread home but didn't have room in my carry on bag!

So many choices, so little time! However, even with so many choices, we always order the chicken salad! Wonderful place, just be careful, it's always VERY crowded at lunch time (try before or after). Breads are great, desserts are great, soup great, atmosphere great, service great, I guess it's pretty great!

I have seen so many great reviews, and heard many good things about Merridee's, so I was happy to give it a try. I went with the recommended chicken salad. Unlike typical chicken salad, it was very wet and made for a messy sandwich. With all the wonderful offerings at a bakery, I was surprised the side option with the... More

Merridee's is quite a Franklin tradition. Located in the heart of downtown, just around the corner from Main Street, when you walk in through the door, you know you are in for a treat, whatever you order. From coffee to warmed pastry, breakfast to lunch, and goodies to take home for later!... Merridee's is not only tasty, but you're likely... More

Went in for a quick breakfast and ordered the biscuit sandwich with ham and egg. Biscuit was doughy and there was a sliver of ham on the sandwich. Still hungry, we split a pecan roll which was much better, but still just average.

Good place for coffee and cookies, muffins, etc. as you tour downtown Franklin. Worth the visit. Housed in a restored downtown building this locally owned and operated bakery is an excellent alternative to that "other" coffee bar with the green logo.
