This is our first choice for breakfast or lunch when we're downtown. Merridee's is a classic that have been in business for years and years. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Or just grab a pasty and head for a walk.

This is a quaint bakery that serves a wide variety of food. The desserts are also great! The French silk pie was amazing.

Got chicken salad sandwiches to go for a picnic lunch. Plenty of chicken salad stuffed into the white bread sandwich. Made it feel lille a sloppy joe. Almost needed a plate and fork. Chocolate chip cookies were a great addition.

My husband & I stopped here for lunch yesterday & couldn't have asked for a better experience! He had the tuna melt & I had the Reuben - both were outstanding!! Fresh bread & corned beef was so tender - yummmm! Unfortunately, we were so full, we couldn't try their delicious looking pies...

It was a comfortable, quiet place to enjoy breakfast and a book. Food was fresh and quick. Breads and cookies looked GREAT, but unfortunately I am NOT carb challenged (I'm fat), so I abstained. Highly recommend.

You could stand there all day and still have a hard time making up your mind from the incredible menu. Sweet stuff, salty stuff, stuffed stuff! It's all there. And the espresso was the perfect drink to sit with and watch the people walk by. Recommended by our hotel - and now by us! GO!

I swore that was the ONE place we had to have breakfast. He agreed after a few bites--great breakfast, great atmosphere, great employees. If only we lived closer, it would become... More

Order the chicken salad on the baguet. I wish I could go there at least once a week. It is located in a quaint downtown area of Franklin. Just perfect.
