Had a great dinner here with family. Food was delicious. Amanda, our server, was very attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. We have already decided to return for our next special dinner.

Delicious food in a relaxing atmosphere. Fried green tomatoes with pimiento cheese were amazing! The biscuits with honey butter and blueberry jam were a big hit.

I had dinner here with reservations on a Friday evening. The fried green tomatoes were the best I've ever had. The complimentary biscuits were also good, but ours were not served with jam that other reviewers have mentioned. For my entrée, I ordered the lobster...More

My all time favorite restaurant in Franklin. Locally owned. Quaint. Great for casual lunch or date night. Seasonal menu. Best shrimp and grits around. Friendly staff. Yummy mini biscuits and homemade jam. Love, love. Kids menu limited but kids enjoy going there.

Sophisticated Southern and Gourmet Country are great ways to describe the cuisine at the charming Mack & Kate"s Cafe. Named after two sisters, MacKenzie and Kathleen, our family owned and operated establishment will make you feel right at home. Started in a small, sleepy town, Mack & Kate's humbled beginnings took place in a small service station. This charming little destination dining spot grew over eight years, resulting in the Strawn Family relocating Mack & Kates to Franklin, TN.
We enjoy seeing our friends from our early days and our new friends here in Franklin.
We use the freshest and finest when it comes to our ingredients and always support local farmers and growers. We pride our self in our accommodating and knowledgeable service team and the ability to consistently feed our customers what they are looking for; the freshest from the best.
