Came in after walking the cute stores on the min street to have a light lunch and it was excellent. I got the half sandwich with API - tomato and grilled cheese - all good - nice presentation - neat little gem. Busy little place - will be back to try other items on the menue -

“Someone took me to the Rosebud; now, I'm taking others.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

The Rosebud Cottage is an excellent choice. You can't go wrong with that turkey sandwich - great place to get some lunch.

“Local ambience with sweet treats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The Rose Bud Cottage is a cute little gift shop and restaurant on Main Street in downtown Franklin. We were a party of four. Upon arriving we asked if they served ice cream sundaes and were told no, but the young man behind the counter said he would be happy to see if he could accommodate us. He did just that, bringing out two beautiful sundaes with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and caramelized pecans. That took care of two of us. The others ordered a bowl of chocolate ice cream, hot bread pudding with melting chocolate chips and cups of specialty "Forte" hot tea. All selections were delicious. The cottage was a lovely place to dine and the gift shop offered a nice selection of good quality gifts to bring home from our vacation. We recommend this place as a nice place to visit while in Franklin.

“Great sandwich!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Really unusual place to eat. Bread is made on the premises and they have two great chefs. Not the average and good prices. Cute gift shop when you are finished eating. Our sandwich came with a side of our choice and a brownie.
Bread was very good. Owner, Manager, Martha is very sweet and spends time with you when needed. She just increased the seating area for eating. Pretty busy when we were there. Will certainly return and soon. This was the first time we have been there to eat. Also has a good line of inexpensive cards and portion of sales goes to feed children.

“The Sandwichboard Sign drew me in. The food will bring me back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

The Lunch Special sign for "1/2 Gooey Grilled Cheese with Turkey, bean salad, and brownie" drew me into the Rosebud Cottage! The setting is an old soda fountain, in downtown Franklin. I ordered the special to go with a cup of delicious sweet tea. The sandwich was chock-full of thickly sliced REAL turkey! What a delightful surprise when I was expecting thinly sliced deli meat! The small brownie was just the right size for leaving me feeling indulged, without feeling like I'd REALLY cheated on my resolution to eat more healthily! The bean salad, with a couple of homemade pickle slices, was also delicious. I will be back, soon, with friends! http://rosebudcottagenc.com
