I love their food. They have lots of tasty treats! However I don't like some of the ingredients they use in their food like vegetable and corn oils (both of which are likely GMO). In that regard, they are behind the times and need an upgrade. I will seldomly eat there for that reason.

Tried Meridees today for a late morning coffee/ snack. It was clearly the start of lunch time when we arrived as the place was very busy, but we managed to get a table which was promptly cleared and wiped down. A good start! The fact that it was busy seemed to be a good indication of things to come. Hw... More

My husband and I tried Merridee's Breadbasket on a recent trip to Franklin. I have very high standards for baked goods and Merridee's sweets are fabulous! It was very crowded and I can see why, but it is well worth any time you have to stand in line or scramble for a table. We will definitely go back to Merridee's... More

I ordered an Italian Cream Cake from Merridee's for my significant other's birthday. I went to pick it up, was waited on promptly, and drooled the whole time I was there. It's a busy place for a good reason. The cake was absolutely delicious. Merridee's is one of those places where you know everything will be delicious just from the... More

Stopped by the bakery here as recommended by my friend. He raved about the cinnamon rolls and breads. He grabbed a coffee to drink while strolling through the local shops. We also purchased cinnamon rolls and pumpkin bread to take home. My husband said the cinnamon rolls had very good flavor, but were very dry. I tasted the pumpkin bread.... More

This is one of my favorite breakfast spots. My family lives in Franklin and I make sure I stop by Merridee's for breakfast whenever I'm in town visiting them.

We celebrated our anniversary in Nashville and stopped here for lunch !! Delicious monte crisco and their famous chicken salad. We also had key lime pie, which was great too. We purchased pastry for later. Only complaint was that everyone else had the same idea, it was packed!

Nice atmosphere and not too crowded when we arrived about 7:30AM on a Saturday. But then we waited at least 15 minutes for our food at one of their outside tables. When I went in to check on our food the waitress said she couldn't find us earlier. I think there are only 4 outside tables so it shouldn't have... More

We are sorry for the trouble in getting your breakfast to you and your wife. We are usually pretty packed during breakfast and lunch, but that's definitely unacceptable. I can assure you that we will be addressing this with our team. It's also unfortunate that you had to enjoy cold food. I assure you it's much better at the desired... More
