Good Lunch

My wife and I went for a weekday lunch. It was very crowded at the order counter but a table was easy to get since it is a large restaurant. Chicken salad fruit plate and grilled salmon sandwich were both very good portions and nicely done.

We stopped in for lunch on our way home to Memphis. We had the chicken salad plate. It was wonderful! Be sure not to miss the fresh breads and pies. Our favorite was the peanut butter cookies. They were delicious! Get there early because it's a busy, busy, busy place!

This bakery has been in Franklin for quite some time. We are new to the area, but each time we have eaten there we have not been disappointed. We also took home bakery items that were delicious.

Be prepared to get in a line and join the throngs of diners for a Saturday noon lunch! Ordered the baguette ham sandwich (a tad salty for me) and french dip. All sandwhiches are ordered ala cart so remember to order your sides! The red velvet cake was delicious! Great experience, however I'll come mid-week for a less frenzied atmosphere.

Thank you for taking time to write a review, Claudia. We are delighted you came and that you enjoyed your lunch and dessert. If you plan your next visit mid-morning or mid-afternoon, the throngs of diners usually thin out a bit then. You likely won't have to wait in line so long, but thankfully, it’s worth the wait! See you... More

Stopped for coffee and a bite to eat. Had the curry chicken salad sandwich, which was very good if you like curry. It had grapes and pecans in it on freshly baked bread. For dessert I had the cranberry white chocolate bar. Their bakery items were reasonably priced and very delicious! Nice variety of cookies and bars, and a smaller... More

The sandwiches are excellent. My personal favorite is the large selection of deserts. Love the pie! Lots of places to sit! A place you have to return multiple time to enjoy the many menu selections!

I have eaten here a few times over the last year and there are some real highlights on the menu but it seems a bit over-priced for what it offers. The bakery goods we have tried are fantastic and the sandwiches are good and the Monte Christo is delicious. It just seems to cost a bit more than expected for... More

If you want some local southern flavor head to Merridee's! We enjoyed the comfort food and the atmosphere. There are mostly sandwiches and salads for lunch, and it's not very expensive, but it's a fun experience.
