Yummy for the tummy and soul

Love this place, whether it's a cup of delish tomato soup alongside a tasty half sandwich, or a decadent slice of dessert. Homey

We were looking for a place for breakfast while waiting for the Carnton Planation and we found this. It was a little Gem the food was fantastic and the coffee was the best I have ever tasted.

Neat little restaurant in downtown. We always stop in when we are passing through franklin. Our favorite thing to get is the Tomato Basic Soup and their Fruit tea. The sandwiches are always good as well.

In a town full of deep fried, meat-n-three places, the Mercantile offers choices like salad and light sandwiches. Everything was very good. The decor is fun and artsy. Everyone was pleased with lunch.

I am a pastor at a church right across the street from the Mercantile and I couldn't be happier about that! It is the best sandwich place I've eaten at in my 58 years on earth. The people taking your order are friendly and the hand written (in chalk) menu has something for everyone. If you come early, there is... More

Easy to miss on a side street, locals all know where it is. We have eaten here many times, always friendly and great food. Highly recommend the Annabelle sandwich.

I was in Franklin for a week for work and decided to try out The Mercantile for a quick sandwich...it was so good I went back the next day. They have a great 1/2 sandwich with cup of soup option! Would highly recommend this place!
