This local restaurant is southern lunch at its best. My wife and have dined here ever since we moved to Franklin over thirty years ago. From the chicken salad sandwich on Viking bread to the soups to the chocolate silk pie, you can't go wrong. The pimento cheese reminds me of my grandmother's recipe. Plan to do lunch early since...

We went to Franklin to tour the Carter House and stopped at Merridees Breadbasket for a quick bite. We felt like we had hit the breakfast jackpot! A very casual style of service, you order at a counter and the servers bring your food to you, perfect for a casual meal. The case with their freshly baked pastries, pies, cookies,... More

It is great for families and couples. Great southern cooking dishes with ample servings. Short waits occur on weekends.

My husband had a french dip sandwich and I had the southwest chicken wrap and both were delightful to the tastebuds. There was live music as we dined and the atmosphere was as quaint as the town that we were dining in. We will definitely return during our next visit to Franklin.

Thank you for your review. Our peak breakfast and lunch hours can be a bit busy, but we do our best to keep the line moving and get everyone their food as quickly as possible. If you have a chance, stop in for a late breakfast sometime, or maybe afternoon coffee and dessert – it's usually a little less crowded.... More

We normally have a take out order and stop in for breakfast. Parking in the garage is available if nothing shows on the street. Staff are sharp and friendly.

Stopped in here for dessert after dinner. I had the pumpkin cheesecake and a cup of coffee. It was the best cup of coffee I had the entire trip. Not sure if I would want to eat an entire meal here but if the dessert is any indicator it would probably be good too. Only problem was my sister and... More

You know how when you get off the hwy and travel the small towns looking for that local, friendly feeling you're inevitably disappointed? Merridee's will not disappoint. Atmosphere, southern baked goods, and free parking across the street.
