I went here for lunch with a friend and it has a good variety of choices for lunch. It is home style cooking. The staff are friendly and it has a family atmosphere obviously frequented by regular locals.

So happy to have discovered Ann's in Franklin. Extensive breakfast and lunch menu serving the classics. Fast and efficient service, good food, and fair prices. A perfect place for us, since my wife likes the breakfast foods and I prefer the lunch menu. A relaxing casual atmosphere with plenty of the locals filling the seats. No wonder it has been... More

A nice small town restaurant with a good feel. Staff was very friendly and provided good service. Very clean. Proceeds from this restaurant help a local treatment center. Go visit them.

It doesn't matter if you want either or both. Ann's does a fine job serving traditional lunch or breakfast foods. The seating is a little close to one another, but that's okay. We're all in this life togethet, so why not share a meal with your neighbors? !

Had breakfast here, waited too long for service. Food was average, potatoes were very very overcooked, mushy. Asked for more, waitress acted as if I was bothering her. Brought new potatoes, they were exactly like the first round, gross and inedible. No one asked about meal, no one offered to take the food off the bill,or a dsicount it was... More

Great home cooking. Pleasant family atmosphere and its dog friendly with outside tables available weather permitting. A not so secret damn good place to eat downtown.

Try the halepenio omelette. Nothing better within miles. Also near a beautiful restored court house. Great little town we love to visit each year.
