“Great Morning Vibe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Good breakfast food and coffee in a cozy history feel just off the Franklin Main Street hubbub. Better for coffee meetings than the bustle and noise of the Starbucks down the street.

“One of my favorite places to eat when in downtown Franklin.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

Their food is always good! Their BLT is the best! And you can't go wrong with the fruit tea! Staff is great and efficient.

“Local Fare with Flair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Special little bistro with quirky tables and chairs with excellent menu and the best soup in town. Want to come back when they feature music on some evenings.

“Below average Sandwich”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is my second time eating here. The first time it was at dinner it was amazingly great!!! I went in for lunch and got the roast beef sandwich with greek pasta salad. The pasta salad was very good. The sandwich was not that great. For the price I could have made a more delicious sandwich at home. Still I would recommend the Mercantile.

“Lovely Dinner at the Mercantile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

My mom and I wandered around Downtown Franklin for a while before settling on the Merchantile Deli. They were running a spectacular special--one appetizer, a bottle of wine, two entrees, and a dessert for $49. We really enjoyed the sangria (and I'm not a particular fan of wine) and the atmosphere. They had a great bluesy/country female singer in that evening that really added to ambiance. We have a fantastic waitress who was a lot fun and chatty. It's just a great laid back place. My mom had the salmon and raved about it. I had the pesto chicken would was good as well. Sometimes restaurants smother the pasta in pesto but this was just light tossing. My only quibble was the "Slice of Heaven" dessert. It wasn't really that great, so I would recommend one of their other desserts.

In any case, we really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and service, and look forward to visiting again soon.
